This was one of my all-time favorite adventures! From seeing first-hand how the balloon is set up, to bringing it down and helping pack it away, it was genuinely perfect!
A storm off the East Coast affected the wind as far in as Charlottesville so our May morning flight with Rick Behr of Boars’ Head Ballooning was cancelled the night before our scheduled flight. Rick offered to reschedule for the day after in hopes that the wind might calm. We said yes! Cancelled again. After that, we had only one more day in Charlottesville but no opportunity for a third try as Rick was completely booked for that day. Didn’t look like we were going to get our balloon ride. Then Rick offered to check with another balloon pilot in the area; a competitor or Rick’s. Our last day in Charlottesville proved to be perfect weather for hot air ballooning so off Rich and his balloon-basket full of students went, soaring skyward towards beautiful puffs of clouds. We watched them ascend from the perch of our own already airborne balloon. Thank you Rick for making it happen!
Wonderful experience and service
Had an amazing experience with Boar’s Head Ballooning. The weather was perfect and the owner, Rick Behr, gave a group of friends and me an incredible and long trip over the Charlottesville area. Rick and everyone else working there were friendly, communicative, cool, and just fun to be around. They were fun to talk to and very understanding, and they even taught us about the ballooning process. In such a beautiful city/area, and with a great group of people at Boar’s Head Ballooning, people in Charlottesville are missing out if they haven’t taken a hot air balloon ride with these people yet.
