Why Book With Balloons Over Letchworth?
THE VIEW!Balloons Over Letchworth offers a premium ride over the most dramatic scenery on the east coast. You may take only one balloon ride in your lifetime. Why fly over suburbia? We launch between the 110' Middle Falls and the 70' Upper Falls. Both falls and the historic train trestle are in perfect view the minute your balloon rises above the trees. The winds often take our balloons directly above the waterfalls and then down into the deeper parts of the gorge where you may view other park waterfalls and cliffs rising up to 600 feet!
STABILITY:We have a contract with the State of New York and have operated safely since 1987. We are the only company allowed to launch within the park, assuring that you will enjoy the splendid scenery. You are welcome to check with the park personnel about our well-run operation.
WEDDINGS OR LARGE GATHERINGS;Our larger balloon ride basket can accommodate up to 9 passengers allowing you and your entire family or circle of friends to fly together. We also have a balloon that will fly up to five passengers (plus pilot) therefore we can take up a group of up to 14! We will also arrange a wedding aloft for you and your party.
SAFETY:Our larger basket has divided, padded walls separating couples, affording privacy as well as safety. Although very rare, should the basket tip over, passengers will not fall on top of each other as may happen in an open basket. It is quite simply the safest balloon system available.
CONVENIENCE:The Glen Iris Inn is within walking distance or short drive to our balloon launch site. Many of our passengers combine their balloon ride with a romantic overnight stay and or dinner/breakfast.
EXPERIENCE:Captain Sean has over accumulated 2300 hours of safely flying hot air balloons and his resume is long and impressive. All of our commercial pilots are F.A.A. certified as is our perfectly maintained equipment. This is Sean's full time business, not a sideline.
The staff at Balloons Over Letchworth understand that for many this is a once in a lifetime experience. Most of our passengers are celebrating a special anniversary or birthday. We strive to make it the most memorable time of your life. We are often complimented on our "classy operation". Read our testimonials.
