Hot Air Balloon Race

Hot Air Balloon Race is a race where both the pilot’s and crew’s skills are challenged.  A balloon can only go the same speed and direction as the wind.  The pilot must find the altitude which gives him/her the best speed as well as direction towards the finish line.  The race becomes a crew event as well, since the balloons are limited to 40 gallons of fuel (propane).  Forty gallons is approximately enough fuel to last 4 hours, so the balloons have to land for refueling.  If the crew is not there immediately with fresh tanks, valuable time is lost while the pilot and crew try to find each other. Helendorf River Inn, Suites & Conference Center is the place to stay for Hot Air Balloon Race in Helen.
