WHAT IS BALLOONING
The hot air balloon is an aircraft composed of a balloon, which inflates with gas and hot air, and a wicker basket that houses the passengers. The vertical lifting of the hot air balloon occurs thanks to Archimedes’ principle according to which each body receives an upward thrust of equal intensity to the weight of its volume. Hot air, therefore, being less dense than atmospheric air, allows the hot air balloon to fly.
The origins of the hot air balloon date back to distant times, precisely around 220 AD when in China it was used to send military signals.
Flying in a hot air balloon is an extraordinary experience to share in a group or in a couple that combines relaxation with the thrill of flying over spectacular and unique landscapes.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
A hot air balloon flight in Mondovì begins at the meeting point indicated on the map. Mondovì is a pretty little town perched on a hill (80 km from Turin), and flying in a hot air balloon here has a special charm because it is the only place where it is possible, with a little luck on the clearest days, to be able to observe the snow-capped Monviso on one side and the sea as far as Corsica on the other.
After a safety briefing, you will have the opportunity to observe this beautiful corner of Piedmont from a different and original angle.
The hot air balloon flight will last from 40 to 60 minutes. The course is decided by the wind direction; the pilot can only decide on the flight altitude. The hot air balloon will climb up to 500 meters, but will also fly for some stretches at low altitude, caressing the treetops.
At the end of the flight there will be a rich aperitif with tasting of local wines and products, local cold cuts and cheeses.
After the flight you will be able to receive the baptism certificate of the first flight signed by the pilot.
