"Our favorite flight path in Snohomish is our normal area of operations. The flight involves taking off from Harvey airfield, climbing high to catch winds going south until we near the Kenwanda golf course. Then we drop, accounting for wind between our altitude and the surface, so that we end up low over the golf course, and get carried east by the surface wind which lets us slide over the ridge down into the river valley. We use the way the ground affects the surface winds to navigate where we want to go.
We fly right on the treetops and then quickly dive behind the trees at the river's edge. Our speed drops, we stop going east and drift south, following the river and spending as much time as possible in the most scenic part of the whole Snohomish area before drifting on into our target landing site."
We have two beautiful balloons in our fleet.
They differ in basket size.
The small basket (balloon is 140,000 cubic feet, basket is 4\xe2\x80\xb2 x 6\xe2\x80\xb2) is perfect for 4-6 passengers and the larger basket (balloon is 210,000 cu ft and the basket is almost 6\xe2\x80\xb2 x 8\xe2\x80\xb2) is ideal for 8 to 10 passengers.
On any given day, depending on bookings, we may fly one or two balloons.
Or you can book a certain size balloon for your special group.
