Where We Meet

Our passengers meet at Mimi's Cafe, about an hour before sunrise. From there they are taken to one of over thirty different launching fields in the Northern Hillsborough and Southern Pasco County area . The exact location of the launch is determined by the wind conditions on the morning of the flight. Our ground crew stays in radio contact with the balloon and is normally in the landing field before the balloon lands. Very seldom is this the same field that the balloon was launched from. After a traditional champagne toast, our passengers are returned to Mimi's Cafe..
