Michigan Hot Air Balloon Rides Westwind Balloon Company
Hot Air Balloon Rides in Michigan Hello, my name is Scott Lorenz and I am the pilot and owner
of Westwind Balloon Company. I’ve been flying the Kensington Park and Brighton, Michigan area for 30+ years. It’s an important distinction
to make these days because so many out of state companies who claim to have balloon operations in Michigan and elsewhere, sell cheap flight certificates
to unsuspecting people that they’ll never be able to use in Michigan. You won’t have that problem here. Call me at (734) 667-2098.
Private Flights for Two Your balloon ride for two lasts about one hour and we usually fly over
the woods and streams of Kensington Park and Island Lake State Park. On most flights you'll see hundreds of birds, deer and other wildlife as we
touch the tree tops. It's a spectacular view you can ONLY experience in a hot air balloon. Often, we’ll talk to people on the ground and interact
with kids as they follow us on their bikes. At the end of the flight we’ll celebrate with a traditional Champagne toast. The entire activity begins
at our meeting point which is located in a Park 'n Ride area off Milford Road and I-96 (exit # 155) and we meet 2 1/2 hours before sunset. From
there we’ll launch helium balloons, determine the wind direction, then we’ll take a short drive to one of our nine launch sites in the area.
What to Wear We recommend that all passengers wear tennis shoes, jeans, and bring along a light
windbreaker type jacket or sweat shirt. The air temp “upstairs” is within a couple degrees of ground temp. A hat and sunglasses come in
handy in case we fly toward the sun. If you are going to fly with the recipient, be sure to bring a camera or video camera and we’ll take a photo
of you both while flying over the countryside.
Reserve Your Date Because dates fill fast, in order to reserve your flight or to receive a
gift certificate, we require advance payment. To confirm arrangements please email me your intentions and send a check for $695.00 made payable to:

Easy Payment Click Here to reserve
a flight or buy a gift certificate Or, if you prefer, we also accept Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover Card, in which case you can call or
email me the credit card information. I’ll send you a certificate that may be kept as a souvenir of the flight. In the event we have weather conditions
unfavorable for a flight on the date selected, we'll reschedule the flight on a mutually acceptable date, next year if need be. Because of the nature
of the ballooning business there are no refunds.
