Fly Pueblo Balloon in Taos

Your Pueblo Balloon adventure begins bright and early when you're picked up at your Taos area Hotel or B & B. Our experienced crew and experienced FAA certified pilots are personable, knowledgeable and entertaining.

Riding the soft desert wind in a hot air balloon is the perfect way to celebrate your special occasions with friends, family or when romance is in the air, and there is no better place to enjoy it than here in Taos, New Mexico. Our Champagne balloon flights provide guests beautiful panoramas of Taos and the Sangre de Cristo's before we drop down into the *Gorge and kiss the historic Rio Grande river as it gently flows south into the Gulf of Mexico. This is the most thrilling balloon ride anywhere. After the flight we celebrate with the traditional Champagne (or sparkling cider) toast where you'll be presented your official Flight Certificates. The flight lasts about an hour Balloon flights last 45 - 60+ minutes or longer depending on the days weather., but the memories will last a lifetime.

* While it is always our preference to fly in the gorge, due to prevailing wind patterns in Taos, in winter we may end up flying in town instead. Flight location is always at the discretion of the pilot in command with your safety in mind.

    Scheduling Flight Certificates given as gifts

    Simply present the flight certificates and other paperwork to whomever you intend to give the ride, and have them contact us to schedule, or they may schedule on our website using the codes on the flight vouchers. Since we will not know to whom they have been given, we will not contact you to schedule. It is your responsibility to make sure the recipient contacts us to schedule their ride. Please ask the recipient to have a calendar handy when calling so we can pick a mutually agreeable time. If we are unable to fly the first opportunity for any reason, they can contact us to reschedule at their convenience.  Flight Certificates issued by us do not expire unless they are forfeited or were donated by us for a charitable donation.  Any charitable donation certificates will expire 1 year after the issue if no expiration date is on the certificate.

    Meeting Location

    We ask that you call us the evening before your flight to check-in by 8:00 PM. (575) 300-2730. We will be able to give you any last minute changes to your meet time (if any) when you call. It also contains the address of our meeting location and other pertinent flight information. We will be meeting at the Taos Walmart which is located at 926 Paseo del Pueblo Sur. It is at the corner of Paseo del Pueblo Sur and Camino De La Merced.

    We will meet in the south east corner of parking lot, next to the street which is nearest the intersection of Paseo del Pueblo Sur and Camino De La Merced. Click here for a Google map to this location.

    No-Show Policy

    A "No-show" is anyone who fails to show up for a flight after scheduling a flight. No-shows have a substantial impact on our business. As a result of no-shows we either flew an aircraft only partially full, or we didn't fly at all. Either way we incurred the same expense to fly whether we were able to fly you or not, therefore a no-show will result in a forfeiture of your flight fee, certificate, voucher or deposit and we will consider our obligation for that flight to be fulfilled. No refund will be possible since we incurred the cost of the flight in your absence. Please make sure to allow sufficient time for arrival at the meeting location, and call us if you are running late. If you are using a third party certificate of any type to pay for your flight, that voucher will be redeemed and considered used and you will not be entitled to a refund from that third party agency.  Should you manage to get a refund from them, we will charge the card you provided us at scheduling for your flight fee. There are no exceptions to this policy under any circumstances.

    Weather Cancellation Policy

    Weather is always a concern and does force cancellations and rescheduling of flights. If it clearly isn't going to be safe to fly on your date and time, the flight status line will announce this as soon as the decision is made before the flight.  Please call us the next business day to reschedule your adventure. If the flight is on, we will provide specific meeting times and locations for the morning's adventure.  If the weather forecast isn't clear for the next morning, we will place the flight on a weather hold and ask everyone to call about 1 hour before the morning's expected meeting time to get an updated forecast.  At that time we will let you know for sure if the flight is on. If we must cancel your flight due to weather, simply call us to reschedule your flight.  If you are unable to reschedule, and you paid us directly for your flight, please call us for your options.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you cancel at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled flight, there is no penalty and you may reschedule. If you cancel with less than the required notice, or fail to show up the morning of your flight, we will charge the full amount to the card on file as a cancellation fee, or your flight certificate, voucher or prepayment will be considered forfeit and you will not be allowed to reschedule that reservation. No credit will be given in any way for cancelling with less than the required notice or for no-shows.

    Refund Policy

    All flight certificates and prepaid flights purchased directly from World Balloon are fully refundable within one (1) year from the date of purchase as long as either no flight has been scheduled, or you cancel your first scheduled flight at least 48 hours prior to flight time. All refunds will be issued to the original purchaser in the original purchase method (credit card purchases will be refunded via the same credit card) if possible. If not, a refund will be issued via company check. No refunds will be issued to no-shows, those that show up intoxicated, or anyone whose flight certificate, flight, or voucher has been forfeited for any reason. No refund will be granted after one (1) year from sale. Even if the certificate is not refundable, as long as it hasn't been forfeited or used, it can still be used.  There are no exceptions to this policy.

    If you are eligible for a refund, we will process the request within 7-10 business days.  If your flight was purchased through any third party, you will have to discuss any refund request with them.  We are not able to provide refunds for any third parties for any reason.

    We are pleased to accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and cash. We do not accept checks as a form of payment. 

    FAQs

    Are we insured?
    We are insured by an American-owned, A+ rated insurance company.
    What time are the balloon flights?
    We meet about 30 min. before sunrise. The exact meeting time will be included with your balloon ride confirmation.
    Where do we meet?
    The address to our meeting location is: 926 Paseo Del Pueblo Sur, Taos, NM 875710. ( Map)
    Where will the balloon land?
    A balloon flight is dependent on wind speed and direction. Every flight is different and our landing sites vary.
    What should I wear?
    Ballooning is an outdoor sport activity, so you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in and the type of clothing that you would expect to wear for a walk in the countryside on the day you fly. For women, climbing into the gondola will be very awkward in a dress or skirt. It is strongly recommended that all shoes worn should have flat soles. Please do not wear flip-flops or open-toed shoes.
    Can I take a camera?
    Absolutely, there is always plenty to photograph both prior to the flight, during and afterwards. You may bring a video camera also. We recommend that you have a suitable soft case, including carry strap, with you to stow and protect the camera during the landing. Bring extra memory cards and batteries. Panoramic cameras are nice for scenery.

    Professionalism and Safety

    Fly Pueblo Balloon in Taos

    Our FAA certified commercial/instructor pilots are seasoned, professional experts in hot air balloon flight. Each Pueblo Balloon pilot has an excellent FAA safety record. In keeping with FAA regulations, which hot air balloon pilots are required to do, each pilot undergoes a rigorous training program in order to earn his/her pilot license through the FAA. Each pilot must then "renew" their ratings every two years by taking a required Flight Review (exam) administered by an FAA commercial balloon pilot. We value our passengers' safety as well as our own, and thanks to strict federal regulations, hot air ballooning is one of the safest forms of aviation today.

    Why Fly with Pueblo Balloon

    • We are fully licensed and insured. All of our pilots are FAA certified commercial pilots with many, many years of experience. Our pilots are some of the safest in the industry and as a result, we are proud to say we have a perfect safety record. We can emphatically make a statement like this because we are very conservative in our flight decision making, and if the weather conditions aren't right, we will cancel the flight. We have a very strict operations guide that all of our pilots must follow that defines what we will fly in and what we won't. This ensures there is no ambiguity in flight decision making and ensures your safety remains our top priority in everything we do.
    • We focus on you to ensure you have the highest quality experience possible. We could be bigger, but we don't want to lose the personal attention that it takes to deliver a World Class experience.
    • We also have an A+ rating with the BBB, are members of the Balloon Federation of America and the Professional Ride Operator Division.
    • We carry the best insurance available in the industry. If you would like to see a copy of our policy, please call us and we will gladly email you a copy of our insurance.

    Pueblo Balloon's commitment to safety is always foremost.

    • Pueblo Balloon is a zero tolerance workplace. All of our pilots, crew and office staff are subject to random drug screenings.
    • We will not fly in unsafe conditions.
    • Our equipment requires a full FAA inspection annually or every 100 hours (which ever comes first) by FAA certified aircraft inspectors.
    • Before every flight our Pilot and ground crew inspect the balloon, envelope, rigging and gondola.
    • Watch us prepare for flight and you'll see the many safety checks we make.
