What exactly is a “champagne flight”?

‘Champagne flights’ are free-flights that culminate with a champagne toast in the great tradition of over 200 years of ballooning.

‘Champagne flights’ are suitable for couples, groups and singles, making each celebration into a unique experience. The flights are launched daily, with prior reservation.

Hot-air balloon flights are best launched in the early morning hours when the climate is stable and creates ideal conditions for a fun and safe flight.

We will lift off in the early morning or late afternoon hours, roaming the skies on a light wind, gazing at the landscape from a bird’s-eye view.

The flight lasts between 50-80 minutes, according to the winds. The flight itself is only a part of a complete experience lasting 4-5 hours.

The flight includes an array of experiences

  • Coffee and snack at the initial meeting place

  • Inflating the hot-air balloon

  • Gentle lift-off at sunrise

  • Gliding and roaming the skies at an altitude of up to 3000 ft

  • A soft landing

  • Celebratory toast with chilled, quality champagne

  • Story-telling

  • Relaxed off-the-road trip

  • An indulging breakfast

  • Hot-air balloon flight certificate

  • A unique gift to celebrate an event

  • Detailed suggestions for continuing the day touring the area

All this at the highest level of service you could ask for!

Hot-air balloon flight area

The flights usually take place in the Jezreel Valley – Ramot Issachar – the most beautiful and recommended area in Israel.

Inflating the balloon

After you have been invited to join in a hot drink, the pilot will instruct the ground crew in inflating the hot-air balloon. The RIZE team invites you to take an active part in this experience, or to watch the crew from the side and enjoy the amazing sight of the balloon being inflated and rising into the air.

The flight

When the balloon is inflated and ready for flight, the passengers step into the basket and receive final instructions from the pilot.

The RIZE team promises you a delightful and exciting experience from the gentle takeoff throughout the entire flight. During the flight, the pilot explains about the balloon’s workings and answers any questions the passengers may have.

The flight is determined by the direction and strength of the wind. The pilot controls the flight altitude and the flight direction by entering the air masses moving in different direction.

The landing

Toward the end of the flight, the pilot locates an area suitable for landing.

The crew, which has been following the flight from the ground and keeping constant radio contact with the pilot, will wait at the landing site. The balloon can land in almost any open space.

It should be emphasized that the landing site is unknown in advance, increasing the excitement of the flight anew each time.

The crew will collapse and fold the balloon, and then we will toast with quality champagne as the pilot and crew share stories with the guests.

Off-the-road trip

Following the champagne toast we will head to the fields, orchards and wooded areas in an SUV, a relaxed ride on our way to a delicious breakfast.

In conclusion….

A hot-air balloon ride is an exhilarating once-in-a-lifetime experience.

To conclude this experience, we will partake in a delicious home-made breakfast, delicacies made by Yael of the Jezreel Valley, a gastronomic delight for all.

At the same time, our guests will receive hot-air balloon ride certificates and a small gift from the RIZE team.

Safety

Hot-air balloons are known to be the safest aircraft in the world.

The balloon is carefully examined prior to each flight, and the pilot decides whether or not to embark on the flight, according to the state of the equipment, and the ground and weather conditions.

Each flight is supported by a flight plan submitted to and approved by the Flight Information Board.

Furthermore, the hot-air balloon undergoes strict periodic examinations and is certified by the aerial qualification board of the Civilian Aircraft Authority.

Every passenger receives detailed instruction before boarding the balloon.

Smoking is not allowed in the vicinity of the hot-air balloon.

Should one of the passengers feel unwell or unsure, we will land as quickly as possible in order to return him/her to the ground.

We will keep in constant contact with the ground crew during the entire flight, as they follow the balloon’s progress and are available for any problem that may arise.

The safety and security of the guests and the team are first priority.

We are committed to giving you the safest hot-air balloon experience.

Insurance

All passengers, the hot-air balloons and the activity are insured by Lloyd’s of London, the largest insurance company in the world, authorized in Israel by the Department of Transportation and the Civilian Aircraft Authority.

The RIZE company holds comprehensive flight insurance, covering its passengers for $250,000, and $5,000,000 in 3rd-party insurance.

The insurance policy can be inspected upon request.
