Tether operator may supply either one or two vehicles for tie-downs, depending on agreement


Vehicles must have access to drive on-site


Optimum tether site is in a relatively low-lying area to help minimize the effect of high winds on the balloon

Weather Requirement

All tethers are performed at the discretion of the pilot in command and could be delayed/cancelled on-site due to weather/site conditions

Hot Air Balloons cannot safely carry passengers in winds over 8 mph. Tethered balloon rides are ideal with calm winds not exceeding 6 mph


If winds exceed the maximum for passenger carry, or gusty wind conditions exist, hot air balloons may be able to inflate without passengers for display purposes


Should the event be postponed due to weather or other circumstances prior to balloon team travel, tether may be rescheduled without additional costs (Pilot to consult with client prior to mobilization)


If balloon team mobilizes to the tether site but is unable to tether due to weather or other reasons out of the operator’s control, purchaser is responsible for 50% of the cost of tether, plus travel expenses
