WE KNOW YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS

faq
  • 1. What average distance can a hot air balloon fly?

  • Usually a hot air balloon can move in an hour from 3 to 18 kilometers.

  • 2. What type of fuel does a balloon use?

  • In Vuela en Globo we use the national standard fuel: Gas Propane (LP).

  • 3. How heavy is a hot air balloon?

  • The average weight of a balloon (envelope, basket, 3 tanks) is 250 kilograms, this depends on the size of the balloon.

  • 4. How big is a hot air balloon?

  • Vuela en Globo has 3 different certified models:

    • CONDOR - 77 thousand cubic feet (2 passengers)
    • AGUILA- 144 thousand cubic feet (4 passengers)
    • ALBATROS - 180 thousand cubic feet (8 passengers)
    Their height ranges between 25 and 30 meters.

  • 5. Is a license required to fly?

  • This activity in national territory requires that pilots have a license.  All the Vuela en Globo pilots have a valid license which is granted by the Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC), which is dependent on the SCT.

  • 6. What are they made of?

  • The hot air balloon consists of three basic parts: the envelope, the basket and the burners.  The envelope is made of very light nylon fabric with flame retardant and waterproof.  Manufactured with approximately 1000 meters of fabric and 5000 meters of thread.  The basket is made of wicker, which is strong and flexible.

  • 7. How does a hot air balloon work?

  • Due to temperature differences, the air inside the enclosure is heated with the burner and therefore the molecules expand and become lighter than the air outside, which is colder and this causes it to rise.  If the air inside begins to cool down or the air is ventilated, the balloon descends.

  • 8. How safe is it to fly in a balloon?

  • Hot air balloons are the safest airplanes that exist.  You feel free to fly so high and touch the clouds or so low that you feel in your hands the touch of the cornfields.

  • 9. What is the maximum height to fly?

  • In Vuela en Globo, we usually fly at a height of between 150 and 800 meters above the surface, but a hot air balloon can reach up to 10 thousand feet of altitude.

  • 10. At what speed does it fly?

  • The balloon carries the speed of the wind.  An acceptable speed is 3 to 12 km / h.
