Celebrate Thanksgiving with a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Laurie Givin - Thursday, November 17, 2016

Thanksgiving is truly a special time to show our gratitude for wonderful families, friends, blessed events and all the amazing gifts life has offered! The fun events of the holiday are as embracing as the spirit of gratitude itself, so it only makes sense to have fun with your loved ones for this special occasion. With that said, there’s no other experience than from the skies above!

Here at Gentle Breeze, we’ve been in the business of creating unforgettable moments for over 38 years. You’ll be in good hands while you get views of beautiful landscapes from a sky-high vantage point. It is an exciting way to give thanks, and it leaves everyone refreshed!

You don’t have to worry if there’s too many of you. Our ride balloons can carry between 2 to 6 passengers in one balloon, and we can carry 20+ in multiple balloons per flight!

Show your holiday spirits by letting your loved ones have the experience of a lifetime. Enjoy beautiful scenery and make precious memories all in one basket! Get to know the feeling of gliding weightlessly in the sky as sunlight spreads across the land this Thanksgiving! If you’re up for the excitement, book now!

In closing, we are thankful for all the great friends, coworkers, customers, and community members we have encountered this year. We wish you the most pleasant of Thanksgivings and hope you enjoy this fantastic holiday season!

Brian's Trip to Phoenix: Certifying New Hot Air Balloon Pilots

Laurie Givin - Tuesday, April 12, 2016

This last week, Phoenix, AZ was filled with hot air balloon students looking to take their private and commercial check rides. Although there are hundreds of FAA examiners licensed to provide check rides for airplane pilots, very few are certified to be a flight examiner for hot air balloon pilots. In the western half of the United States, there are only two-- one in California and one in Utah. Brian Trapp, a dedicated examiner from Ohio, traveled to Phoenix to give check rides for five students. Brian has over 4,500 hours in balloons, and has been flying since 1983.  Read More

Why Is Gentle Breeze an Awesome Hot Air Balloon Company?

Laurie Givin - Monday, February 29, 2016

I cannot give this company or the flight team enough praise! Our pilot, Brian, was absolutely wonderful with a great sense of humor! He really eased our nerves & to my surprise... helped eased my fiancé's nerves enough so he could propose! Yes, he popped the question, in the air & Laurie (Brian's wife) was beyond amazing with helping my fiancé plan, prep & succeed in creating a flawless proposal. I highly recommend this incredible duo!! Read More
