A Great Adventure!
We’ve always thought of ballooning, but were put off a bit by the unknown. We were so glad to finally do this! Rick is a true professional – serious in his duties, but a good host with a nice team. Charlottesville is beautiful to begin with, but from the air it is magical. I can’t recommend enough ballooning with this company at this site. You will not be sorry!!
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!
Boar’s Head Ballooning
This was an amazing balloon trip over beautiful countryside, with stunning views of the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains and beautiful Shenandoah Valley. An unforgettable experience, and Rick Behring, owner and balloonist, is a complete professional, with years of experience. Not one to take any chances with wind or weather, Rick will take you on an unforgettable journey.
