FAQs

Why ballooning famous in Cappadocia?
Cappadocia has excellent weather conditions for hot air ballooning. There are roughly 260 flyable days allowing hot air balloon flights in the area. Flights are operated just in the early mornings when the weather conditions are stable, not windy and with mild temperature. The scenery from a balloon over Cappadocia is breathtaking. While soaring between the rock formations and valleys of Cappadocia, you will have plenty of time to enjoy and photographing the scenery.
Which days balloons are operated?
Hot air balloon flights are in Cappadocia scheduled for each morning during sunrise all year round.
What happens if my hot air balloon flight cancelled due to bad weather?
If flight cancellation made by the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority (due to bad weather), you can choose to reschedule it to next day (subject to availability) or get a full refund.
Who decides cancellation of the hot air balloon flights?
Hot air balloon flights are depending on weather conditions. Turkish Civil Aviation Authority that gives approval of balloon flights if the weather conditions are within limits. This applies to all hot air balloon companies in Cappadocia.
Why hot air balloon flight happens early morning?
Hot air balloon need stable wind to operate effectively and the sunrise hours are the best for finding these winds. Since hot air balloons move with the air, the weather is very important in deciding to whether or not to fly. The pilot chooses a launch site to use the wind currents to fly towards a suitable landing site.
Can I record or take photos during the flight?
Yes, there is no problem taking photo or recording during the flight. A hot air balloon makes a perfect camera platform and there is always plenty to photograph prior to, during and after to the flight.
Where does balloon land?
Good question! The simple answer is that nobody knows, exactly! The pilot will have done flight planning before the launch to ensure that the forecast wind direction does not take the balloon towards an unsuitable area. He will use the different air currents at different altitudes to steer the balloon toward a good landing place. The pilot also closely follows agreements with local landowners. This means that the balloon won't fly too close to livestock or land in areas planted with valuable crops.
What if I'm afraid of heights?
Flying in a high sided balloon basket is not like standing in a roof or a high ladder. You don't get that vertigo feeling. It is more like the ground is unfolding beneath you and because you are moving with the wind, there is no wind blowing. The basket does not rock or sway so you can't possibly fall out.
How high hot air balloons fly?
Most balloonists enjoy low level flight. The typical balloon flight would be anywhere from tree level to about 900 meters (3,000 feet) above the ground. For Cappadocia Balloon flights, it is not really necessary climbing to high altitudes. For a short time, its good to have panoramic view of Cappadocia then it might be boring. Also most of he time, there are strong air currents in higher altitudes to carry the balloon way far from the most significant areas.

I would highly recommend this hot air balloon team as they were all extremely friendly and the pilot performed a few tricks like positioning the balloons shadow to look like a heart. The balloon launches from the red valley so you get too see the rose valley. Over all its a very professional company. Recommended.
