EVERYONE TAKE FLIGHT
Hot Air Balloon Launch Sites
Napa Valley Aloft offers three different hot air balloon launch sites. More than any other company. We choose where to launch based on weather the morning of the flight. Our pilots are up prior to check-in scouting which hot air balloon launch site is most appropriate for a safe launch. Visibility (fog) is the number one weather condition that is being scouted. We will not know the exact hot air balloon launch site until passenger check-in because, fog is so unpredictable. At the time of check-in the launch decision will be made and relayed to the passengers. Based off prior year’s averages we fly 75% from Yountville, 20% Pope Valley, 5% Paradisa. Please read each balloon launch site description, each hot air balloon launch site offers a unique scenic adventure balloon ride.
