Book Your Hot Air Balloon Ride in Statesville, NC Today! 

You don't have to wait for an event to take a hot air balloon ride in Statesville, NC.  Local balloon pilots are scheduling flights twice a day, weather permitting, seven days a week, all year ‘round. You can choose a sunrise flight at dawn or a sunset flight, about two hours before the sun goes down—the best times of day for ballooning, when the winds are usually calm. There’s no better way to start or end your day!

How high would you like to fly? On a clear day you can see up to 50 miles —see the Brushy Mountains, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Pilot Mountain, and hear the creek gurgling beneath the branches! Most any day can be an adventure!
