While the sport of hot air ballooning can be exciting, adventurous and beautiful, passengers are exposed to above average risk of injury. While pilots take precautions to provide for a safe flight it is impossible to guarantee absolute safety.
You are requested to sign a Waiver and to surrender the Ticket to your pilot prior to your flight. Your attention is specifically drawn to the paragraph identified as “All Passengers Must:” on the back of the document. If you feel uneasy or unsuited in a balloon, please do not fly.
