Hot Air Balloons over Wesley Chapel

We have grown accustomed to seeing two or three hot air balloons over Wesley Chapel on Sunday mornings.  This morning there were at least ten!  Most of them went right over Wiregrass Ranch and early morning drivers, joggers, & bicyclists all enjoyed them.

And sometimes they fly very low.

they are a company located on Land O Lakes Blvd and they launch every morning from the field that belongs to a church on S.R 54 and Collier Pkwy. I know if I'm running late if they are already taking off. I love seeing them every morning.

Thanks Jennifer. For some reason I thought that launched from Lutz. What time do they take off? Close to sunrise?

We take off from many locations depending on the wind direction, and we always know where we expect to land before we launch. We always take off at Sunrise, when the winds are most calm.
All of these balloons are individual owners, and all take great pride in flying safely. Appreciate your positive comments... and we enjoy your excitement when we fly over.
