It takes a few minutes to heat the balloon to lift our weight. It might be a bit loud and hot but once we are airborne we don't use the burner constantly.
The Pilots lights the burner and heats up the air inside the balloon. With a few short squeezes of the burner, the hot air balloon stands upright and is ready for launch. Typically, the entire inflation takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
When you hear “All Aboard” climb in and let's go.
