We have several possible launch sites in Canandaigua, all of which offer an impressive view straight down Canandaigua Lake! We typically meet at the Mercy Flight station, located at the Canandaigua Airport, on Brickyard Rd. We may launch from there, or we may move to a site immediately on the shore of Canandaigua Lake, next to Kershaw Park! As usual, we rely heavily on wind and weather.
Centrally located in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country, Canandaigua is home to CMAC, Roseland Water Park, and great B&B’s, including the Chalet of Canandaigua.
Few locations rival the majesty of "The Grand Canyon ofthe East." The Gorges of Letchworth Park are magnificent, and provide an excellent location for a memorable balloon ride. The view is spectacular, and the experience breathtaking!
The launch site is located near Castile, NY.
Located at the northwest end of Conesus Lake, Deer Run Winery offers a nice vantage point from which to enjoy the “Little Lakes” region of upstate New York. From this site you have the best chance of actually flying over the lake; and you may even experience a splash ‘n dash.
Prior to the flight, enjoy the quiet front porch of the winery, browse the shop, soak in the beautiful evening; and for when your ride is done, you may even schedule your own special wine tasting.
Launching from the Geneseo airport places you in the midst of the Genesee River Valley, which during your ride gives you a great view of the fertile farm land and winding Genesee River. This is an excellent flying area, with few obstacles near the launch site, often allowing you space to enjoy the meandering Genesee River.
Home of SUNY Geneseo, the small town comes alive each fall with the arrival of new students. Early in the morning however, before the town is awake, can be the best time to experience the tranquility and peace that is intrinsic to a hot air balloon ride.
The launch site is located at the Geneseo Airport. Map»
Conveniently within an hour's drive from either NYC or Philadelphia, the rolling hills of Hunterdon County in west-central New Jersey yield a beautiful flight. Capt. Bob Mueller's experience and his customer-oriented attitude will assure your thorough satisfaction.
The southern area of NJ is a beautiful area to fly, too. There is less open area for landing so wind and weather become an even more important safety consideration. But when conditions are favorable, it is a wonderful flight.
