PRE-FLIGHT PROCESS


With the first light of morning, our valued guests are picked up from their hotels at the pre-informed pick-up time with our comfortable air-conditioned vans, then transferred to Urgup Balloons meeting office in Çavuşin Village.


While our guests enjoy their breakfast at the meeting point, our pilots choose the best take-off site according to the wind speed and direction in order to show more valleys, landmarks, cave dwellings, fairy chimneys.

Once the take-off site has been determined by our pilots and the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority has given permission to fly, you will be transferred to the take-off site.

INFLATION AND TAKE OFF

Our guests will witness how the crew and the pilot prepare and inflate the balloon at the take-off site before flight.

Meanwhile you will have 10-15 minutes to observe the inflation of hot air balloon and taking pictures and videos.

Safety instructions will be informed by your experienced pilot then your balloon adventure will start.

Our balloons made exclusively by Lindstrand Balloons and Cameron Balloons in UK.

BALLOON FLIGHT

Our balloons begin to take-off during sunrise.

The balloons will ascend approximately 300 meters (1000 feet) during the flight. Extraordinary landscape will greet the passengers while drifting above the valleys and between rock formations.

The Balloons move by the wind gently and you will float wherever the wind takes you; so that each flight brings new and lifetime experiences.

We advice to our guest to wear according to the temperature. We strongly recommend to have flat shoes, hat, sunglasses and of course camera.
