no better way to check the weather then take a good look outside. Well
the Channel 3 Forcasters have the best view in the Valley. The Channel
3 hot air balloon is a Cameron Z90. It is 90,000 cubic feet and almost
70 ft tall.
Weather is very important to a hot air balloon because balloons travel
with the wind. At different altitudes, the winds are at different speeds
and directions. The pilot uses these winds to help steer the balloon.
The pilot can control the altitudes to steer the balloon to a good landing
spot. Landing spots very. Balloons can land in a space the size of a
cul de sac. So if you see us landing in a neighborhood near you come
over and say hello. You can even get some hands on fun helping pack
up the balloon .
The pilot of the TV3 balloon is Kevin Flanagan. He has been flying hot
air balloons for over 21 years and has logged well over 5000 hours of
time. Kevin flew balloons in France, England, Switzerland, Canada, and
Mexico. He is one of only a handful of pilots to have flown over the
grand canyon. Kevin has been flying here in Arizona for over 18 years.
You may have seen him in the Wendy's or Dodge Balloons flying around
If you ever wondered what it was like to fly in a balloon you can experience
it for yourself. Kevin and his team will take you up in one of there
balloons and give you an adventure of a lifetime. For flights or gift
