Due to the COVID-19 infectous disease crisis, the impementation of "Social Distancing" and "Saty At Home" orders of both the Federal and Provincial governments, Air Display is not accepting hot air balloon ride reservations. All scheduled reservations are also cancelled. New reservations and the rescheduling of cancelled reservations, will resume once an "All Clear" is issued by both levels of government and their remedial orders, lifted.
Air Display Hot Air Balloon Ride Certificates and Vouchers remain available.
The Air Display Hot Air Balloon Team conducts its balloon flying operations in the vicinity of Barrie, Ontario, May through October and as weather and ground conditions permit.
Air Display carries a maximum of five passengers on each flight. We require at least two passengers to hold a reservation. If you are reserving as a single, you must choose a date and flight time that indicates at least one other passenger or flight cancellation due to lack of participation may result.
Each calendar day will show either a RED, LIGHT BLUE or PURPLE bar. RED dates are out of season. LIGHT BLUE means Air Display is available for local balloon ride reservations. PURPLE indicates Air Display is away attending a hot air balloon festival.
Information about the hot air balloon festivals we attend can be found on Air Display's "LINKS" page. Sometimes balloon rides can be reserved with Air Display during these events.
There are two flight opportunities for each LIGHT BLUE calendar day. Sunrise and early evening.*
If the LIGHT BLUE date also has a FUCHSIA bar, Air Display is fully booked for that flight opportunity. For dates with one FUCHSIA bar, hold your cursor over the FUCHSIA bar to determine which flight opportunity (sunrise or early evening) is fully booked.
You may see a combination of colours for a given date. Two FUCHSIA coloured bars on the same day means that date is fully booked.
* Reservations from October 12th are sunrise only due to early sunset times.
