Hot Air Balloon Jumps

March 31, 2016

There are balloon jumps scheduled for April 29th, April 30th, and May 1st in Ohio. The tentative location is set to be AerOhio, but the final location (potentially a random field with enough room to setup a hot air balloon) is to be determined once the date gets closer. Weather may play a factor in location. We intend to have 8 loads with the following schedule:

2 Loads Friday sunset (6 PM meet time)
2 Loads Saturday sunrise (6 AM meet time)
2 Loads Saturday sunset (6 PM meet time)
2 Loads Sunday sunrise (6 AM meet time)
(Sunday sunset will be a backup)

There will be a link to a spreadsheet on this page, showing the loads for the weekend. Contact the admin you know best to manifest.

We want everyone to jump and have a good time, but the balloonist (who is amazing) will be traveling here from out of state. That being said, slots will be given on a first come first serve basis and you will need to pay in cash (or paypal) ahead of time. Upon payment, your slot will be reserved on the spreadsheet. The organizer will add your name to the load of your choice, so long as there is availability.

COST IS $100/slot

Weather Conditions: If you are not already aware, balloon jumps are very weather dependent. If your load should get weathered out, we will do our best to squeeze in another load so that you get to jump. If that is not possible, you will receive a full refund. If you are not comfortable paying cash upfront to one of the organizers, you can use paypal and pay the service fees.

All payments will go directly to the balloonist for his time, effort, fuel, and willingness to let us rage from his balloon. The organizers will NOT be getting a cut of the money. We will be repaid by the goofy smiles on all your faces when you post pics and videos of your jump in this group afterward.
