Have you ever looked down or at the sky without a window while flying meters high? With a windowless aircraft in the sky, you watch hundreds of fairy chimneys and the indescribable sunrise below you. This is possible when flying with hot air balloons in Cappadocia. We recommend you to fly with a hot air balloon in Cappadocia to experience this beautiful experience.
The balloon consists of two parts. The "Dome" made of fabrics resistant to heating and burning, and the "Basket" part where the passengers and the pilot are located. For the pilot, there is a special section located in the middle of the basket section. The rising and lowering of the hot air balloon takes place in this section with the temperature setting and the routing function. Hot air balloons do not have any engine equipment.
For this reason, light wind is required for flight and the direction is carried out by wind. Now, wherever the wind blows, the hot air balloon goes in that direction. There are pre-planned take-off and landing places. On days with a lot of wind, it can even land in different places, except for the planned landing place. This is actually a bit of luck.
The number of days that cannot be flown is also high, as balloon flights are canceled due to bad weather. You can fly 230 days a year. In the summer, there is a cancellation even on the hottest days.
Of course, as long as the weather and wind are suitable. Civil Aviation and Meteorology Center officials make the flight decision.
