What you'll do

We will meet in the early morning just before sunrise. I will determine our launch location based on actual wind conditions. I will transport you from our meeting location to our launch site in our chase vehicle. I will setup the balloon equipment and give you a pre-flight safety briefing. Once the balloon is standing, I will open the door and you will climb aboard. My crew will take some pictures and then we will go for our flight.

After we land, we will enjoy a champagne, juice or mimosa toast along with a cheese and chocolate plate while my crew packs away the balloon equipment. I will transport you back to our meeting site where I have flight certificates to prove you survived your balloon ride.

Meet your host, Denni

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I am a commercial pilot and flight instructor. I've been flying since 1987. I fly airplanes, helicopters and hot air balloons. I like hot air balloons the best. Other aircraft are designed to get you from point A to point B, but the only thing you can do in a hot air balloon is have fun. I am still amazed that I get to have fun every day!
I have been featured on many TV shows in the USA, Japan, China and Korea. You may have seen me on the Ellen DeGeneres show. I am a sponsored race pilot and have won many balloon events throughout the world. I was named sportsman of the year at the Reno Balloon Race.
