Hot air ballooning is an unforgettable experience, but flying with falcons during a balloon flight is truly extraordinary. On all private or chartered balloon flights with Balloon Adventures, a falcon goes with and at 4,000ft the world’s only in-flight falcon show takes place. This is the story of how we innovatively combined falconry and hot air ballooning in Dubai.

For generations, falconry has been deeply rooted in Dubai’s heritage. These majestic birds represent a spirit of adventure, unyielding strength and timeless beauty. In collaboration with Land Rover and Royal Shaheen, we had a vision to create the world’s most unique and innovative falconry experience – world-first hot air balloon experience with falcons flying at up to 4,000ft.

In 2016 the falcons were born in Scotland due to the cold, crisp climate which was ideal for the development of the falcons’ muscles. When the falcons hatched, they were imprinted, which is when a falcon is taken from the hatch and hand-fed every day so that they begin to trust and imprint on whoever is feeding him. Through imprinting we were able to build a very strong bond and trusting relationship with the falcons. hot air balloon

At the age of 16 weeks, the falcons set off in a Land Rover for a three-day road trip from Scotland to Italy. Along the way, they stopped for training sessions preparing them for what lay ahead. Italy was chosen for its climate and the Balloon Adventures Italy Pilots who would be responsible for imprinting the balloons on the falcons. They needed to get used to the sound of the hot air balloon and practice flying from the balloon air balloon 

When the falcons were 6 months old, they arrived in Dubai to adapt to the warmer climate before their world-first hot air ballooning. For the first time in history, the miraculous birds took flight at 4,000ft above the Dubai desert dunes with the backdrop of the Hajar air balloon 

A world-first with the world’s fastest animal. A one of a kind experience. An unforgettable journey. hot air balloon 

Can Hot Air Balloons Fly in Clouds?

The answer is technical, but it is not recommended for various reasons. First, flying in clouds can be disorienting and cause pilots to lose sight of their surroundings. This is particularly dangerous when hot air balloons fly over open water or other large expanses where it would be difficult to find a safe landing spot. hot air balloon 

Second, the temperature inside a cloud can be significantly cooler than outside, leading to condensation on the balloon envelope and causing the balloon to lose buoyancy. hot air balloon 

Finally, flying in clouds can be very bumpy, making the ride uncomfortable for passengers and increasing the risk of equipment damage. For all these reasons, most hot air balloon pilots avoid flying in clouds whenever possible.

Clouds can be beautiful from the ground, but they are generally not a good place for hot air balloons. The cooler temperatures and lack of visibility make them dangerous for pilots and passengers. If you’re planning on taking a hot air balloon ride, check the forecast and avoid flying in cloudy or rainy weather.

What Wind Speed Can You Fly Hot Air Balloons?

What wind speed you can fly a hot air balloon in depends on the size and weight of the balloon. A larger balloon will need more wind to lift it off the ground than a smaller balloon. The heavier the balloon, the more wind it will need to lift it.

In calm weather, you can fly a hot air balloon at any speed between 0 and 10 mph (0 and 16 kph).

If there is a lot of wind, you might have to fly faster to stay in control of the balloon. The record speed for flying a hot air balloon is 133 mph (214 kph). This record was set by Simon Pickard in 1988 in Hampshire, UK.


Hot air balloons can fly in winds of up to 25 mph (40 kph), but most pilots prefer to fly in less than 15 mph (24 kph) winds. This is because controlling the balloon in strong winds can be difficult. The balloon can also be blown off course and into hazardous areas. hot air balloon

Can Hot Air Balloons Fly in Hot Weather?

Yes, hot air balloons can fly in hot weather. However, there are a few things that you need to consider when flying a hot air balloon in hot weather. hot air balloon 

First, the air inside the balloon needs to be hotter than the outside air to stay aloft, meaning you will need to use more fuel to heat the air inside the balloon. hot air balloon 

Plus, the air inside the balloon expands as it heats up, which can cause the balloon to become less stable. For this reason, it is important to keep an eye on the inflation level of the balloon and release some of the hot air if necessary.
