Aerogelic Ballooning (www.AerogelicBallooning.com) hot air balloon rides Arizona primarily operates hot air balloon flights and balloon rides in the Phoenix metro areas like Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Chandler, Mesa and Peoria/Glendale Arizona. We also have family involved in ballooning in Showlow Arizona. Every summer we enjoy getting out of the Phoenix heat and heading to the Pinetop, Lakeside Arizona area for some beautiful hot air balloon adventures over the white mountains of Arizona. The Arizona White mountains include towns such as Heber, Overgaard, or Payson Arizona as well. Although while there we often make it an Aerogelic family and friend holiday ballooning adventure; we also will take people in good physical condition looking for a lifetime memory adventure on a White mountain hot air balloon ride in Showlow Arizona for only $250 per person.
Several weeks ago on our last holiday vacation to Pinetop, Arizona we brought our smallest hot air balloon we named Ekklesia (which means church in the sky). We met another hot air balloon pilot who also flies hot air balloons in the Phoenix area and lives in Chandler, AZ. Paul had never flown the Arizona white mountains and wanted to fly over our backyard. Being that Showlow and Lakeside Arizona rests in the foothills of the rocky mountains and is heavily wooded with very little open land to retrieve the hot air balloon ladings it can be very intimidating for the average balloon pilot. Although Paul is Not average hot air balloon pilot as he is also a commercially rated pilot who also regularly competes in various hot air balloon races around the county. Although once the flights were completed the first day only thing he could say is
We feel the reason in which Aerogelic Ballooning has the best hot air balloon safety record in Arizona (Since 1976, perfect) is due the nature of our training. As an example our Chief pilot Shane Cory learned to fly hot air balloons in the white mountains of Arizona. Which demands sharpening of hot air balloon piloting skills to maneuver the balloon using only the mountain winds into safe and practical balloon landing areas. Mountain winds can often be quite vigorous or (sporty as balloonists call it), and are often altering in direction due to valley’s and temperature differences. So knowing micro meteorology and using it for navigation is key. Hence the reason our balloon pilots at www.AerogelicBallooning.com have superior hot air balloon piloting skills.
The grandfather of Arizona hot air ballooning (as some would call him) Phil Cory (founder of Aerogelic Ballooning, LLC) also loves hot air ballooning in the white mountains of Showlow Arizona.
