What happens on the day

About 1 hour before sunrise:

  • You will be picked up from your hotel (Melbourne CBD hotels only - 3000 postcode), or meet at the meeting place
  • Your pilot will brief everyone on the weather conditions, safety and inflation procedures
  • Each team member will participate with the inflation process, this includes holding ropes to keep the balloon envelope in place, holding open the base of the balloon so that hot air can make it's way inside and take photos of the process

As the sun is rising:

  • Once aloft, take in the beautiful surroundings while your pilot navigates the balloon
  • Enjoy the flight for approximately 1 hour

After the flight:

  • Once the balloon has landed, you will help to pack the balloon away followed by a debrief of the mornings flight
  • You will be driven back to the meeting venue. This is where the breakfast is held if booked, and photo's will be displayed from the morning's flight

Why hot air ballooning?

A great way to reward your staff with a wonderful hot air balloon experience!

Your team becomes actively involved in the pre-flight planning, rigging, inflation and in-flight management of a balloon flight and will thoroughly enjoy the flight.

This is a great team building event, with something for everyone.

Your team will be required to work together to help set up the balloon during inflation as well as pack up the balloon once landed.

Each passenger will communicate with pilots, crew and team members before, during and after the flight.

You can expect to have a better understanding of how hot air ballooning operates and learn how to listen and communicate effectively with one another.

Your team will walk away with an unforgettable experience. Everyone is just waking up – and they will have already crossed something off their bucket list!
