Weather / Meteorology
Weather & Meteorology
- Our flying locations are chosen as they provide calm, cool air, suitable for flying hot air balloons
- The majority of flights do proceed on the scheduled day
- Commercial Pilots, trained in meteorology, re-evaluate the weather several times each morning
- Avoid following Melbourne weather forecasts, in particular long-range forecasts that provide an overall view of the whole day & are not necessarily relevant to early morning hot air ballooning
- Pilots have registered access to detailed weather reports from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) specific to ballooning in our flying locations
- We see the sunrise on most flights
- Hot air ballooning is a weather dependant activity
- No aviation flight or activity is ever 100% guaranteed as weather is not an exact science
- If your flight is cancelled by the pilot, we email a link so you can rebook & fly on another day
