We begin by laying the basket on its side, then laying out the balloon fabric and attaching it by cables to the basket. We then inflate the balloon with cold air using a portable powered fan. When the balloon is almost completely inflated with cold air, we start to heat the balloon with the burners to heat the air inside the balloon. This will make the Cappadocia hot air balloon ready to rise. With further heating, there is sufficient lift for the balloon to float upwards.
Hot air balloons fly because hot air rises. Hot air rises because it is less dense than the cooler air around it and so it tends to float on the cooler air. We use a burner to heat the air in the balloon until it is hotter than the air outside the balloon, causing it to rise. If we were to allow the balloon to cool, it would begin to descend as it becomes the same temperature as the external air. If we were to let some of the hot air out of the balloon the same thing would happen because there would no longer be enough hot air in the balloon to lift us.
Wind blow in different directions at different altitudes in the Göreme Valley, so the pilot can steer the balloon by ascending or descending and finding a wind that will take the balloon in the right direction. The pilot changes the balloon’s altitude by using the burner to control the internal temperature of the fabric.
Since the balloon has no forward propulsion system, its speed is determined entirely by the speed of the wind. The hot air balloon landing occurs when the hot air is slowly taken out of the balloon to cool down.
In Cappadocia, with the most beautiful scenery in the world, it is a privilege to fly through the hot air balloon and watch the region where there are incredible beauties such as the fairy chimneys and the valley of pigeons. We recommend flying with a hot air balloon in Cappadocia to experience an unforgettable moment. Enjoy the pleasure of flying with the balloon while watching the sunrise. Flying and watching with hundreds of balloons in the sky is as joyful as flying. It will make you happy to see fairy chimneys and valleys from a bird's eye view.
We are waiting for you in Cappadocia to experience all this. We will be happy to help you for booking Cappadocia hot air balloon activity. Please contact to us.
