YOUR HOT AIR BALLOON PILOT
Kevin Flanagan has been flying balloons since 1984. What started out as a gift for his birthday has become a passion: sharing the joy of ballooning with people all over the world. Kevin's company 2 Fly Us is based in Phoenix, Arizona, but from July through September he enjoys escaping the summer heat flying passengers in Kalispell, MT.
WE'RE A LOCAL COMPANY
Throughout the summer months, we reside in Kalispell and offer balloon rides here. We are not a balloon ride broker: we own and fly our own balloons.
Our balloon rides are $250 per person.
THE FLYING SEASON AND FLIGHT TIMES
Our flying season near Glacier National Park starts in July and goes through the end of September. Our morning flights require an early rise, as they start as the sun comes up. Our evening flights begin about two hours prior to sunset. Exact flight time changes depending on the time of year, but we'll let you know when you book a reservation. A typical flight is about one hour in the air, but you should set aside three hours for the entire experience.
Our launch location changes depending on the wind speed and direction. We have launch sites located throughout Kalispell, Whitefish, and Columbia Heights to provide the most scenic rides possible based on the wind conditions on the day of your flight. If you're booked for a flight and need to know where you're launching please call us at 623.583.1314.
WE FLY SMALL GROUPS
We take small groups of no more than four people on our balloon flights. This means that for during a standard flight, it's usually two couples plus the pilot. For private flights, your private party (up to four people) has the entire balloon and pilot to yourselves. No matter which flight you choose with 2 Fly Us, you can count on a personalized experience: we enjoy getting to know our passengers, and this is only possible in a small group setting.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear comfortable clothes, as you would dress for the weather on the day of your flight. Avoid high-heels or flip-flops: you may be walking around in high grass, fields, or rocky terrain depending on where we launch and land. Tennis shoes are best. You might also like to bring a hat (the burners give off some heat), but it's not necessary.
