Why Fly Gentle Breezes

With an unsurpassed safety record, Gentle Breezes is simply the best. The pilot/owner has flown the Madison/Dane County/Southern Wisconsin area since 1990. An excellent tour guide who knows the area’s landmarks by air, you will be amazed at the sights from a totally different and unexpected perspective.

From drifting over the city and its beautiful lakes, the University area, and Capitol Building to wildlife in the rural areas, hot air ballooning provides spectacular photographic opportunities for everyone from the amateur to professional photographer.

Our equipment is state-of-the-art. It undergoes annual inspections by a FAA certified repair station. We are always in contact with our ground crew and the airport control tower via radio.

Our fantastic balloon team anticipates the balloon’s flight path to alert the pilot to livestock, power lines, and other obstructions. These people are superb!

Permission for landing is obtained by the ground crew as we want farmers and landowners to be our best friends, in that if it were not for the goodness of area farmers, ballooning would not be possible.
