Berkshire County in western Massachusetts is one of the premier vacation destinations
in the country. Attractions include Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony
Orchestra, Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival, and the Norman Rockwell museum. A hot air
balloon is a unique way to enjoy the beauty of our hills at any time of year, and
especially during the fall foliage season.
Our Company is located in Lee, Massachusetts “the Gateway to the Berkshires”.
Pilot Tim Taylor and his wife Linda offer exclusive champagne balloon flights for
couples over the beautiful Berkshire hills. We began in ballooning as crew for other
balloonists and had so much fun that we got our own balloon. Balloons are FAA registered
aircraft, with rigorous testing required before earning pilot certification from
the Federal government. Unlike other commercial flying, each flight is designed according
to the prevailing winds and no two are alike.
Flying in a balloon is like no other experience. We fly either soon after dawn or
in the two hours before sunset. There is no breeze because the balloon is moving
with the wind. At the end of the flight, tradition calls for a bottle of champagne
(or non-alcoholic sparkling cider) which is accompanied with light refreshments.
A great way to start the day, or finish a day full of activities before dinner.
Each flight is unique - we go with the wind
By tradition each flight is toasted with champagne after landing
