Directions to the meeting point
The meeting point for our Cortona flights is situated 300 m west of the intersection of road SR71 and road SP28. We meet in the parking at the Seven Resort / Water Park. Please note that the sign and the crew might not be on site until 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting time so if you are early, don’t panic, you are probably at the correct location waiting for us to arrive.
Look at news and more pictures at our Facebook pages.
As with any commercial flight, if you miss your flight no refund will be due but if you think you are going to be late you can try to contact the pilot on the mobile number you will be given after you have booked your flight. There is no guarantee that you would be able to contact the pilot in the morning since the mobile phone signal might not be good at the launch site and after the balloon is inflated, about 20-30 minutes after the meeting time, it might not be possible to delay the launch. If you miss your flight we would try to fit you in to a flight one of the following mornings, subject to available spaces.
Backup Locations – What Are They?
Sometimes flights are moved from one of our stunning locations to another, equally beautiful launch site.
This happens when the forecast, such as unsuitable wind direction or other weather conditions, means it is not flyable at the original location but it is from another.
Being able to move the flights to a back-up site further increases the chance of it going ahead.
We might also on rare occasions move flights for an operational reason, such as the original launch site becoming unavailable on that day.
How Will I Find Out If My Flight Is Being Moved?
You will be informed by your pilot via the flight status page on the website at the time your flight is confirmed as going ahead if there has been any change to the original location.
If this happens, you will need to attend the flight at the back-up launch site or your flight vouchers will become invalid.
Please ensure you have all maps, directions and transport arrangements ready to get to any of our potential launch sites on the morning of your flight.
