Hot Air Balloon Burners, CAppadocia, Turkey

Flight Controls? Only One!

See those little handles on the burners? They are a hot air balloon pilot's only controls. No steering, no rudder, no directional jets. Just on-and-off burner controls. Hot air or more hot air. That's all!

Which is why the skill and experience of the pilot matter so much.

Any pilot can learn to turn burners on or off, but a skilled, experienced pilot knows the winds, and can use them to fly a directional course that will take you over the most scenic areas of Cappadocia.

Lars Möre, pictured above, and Kaili Kidner were the founders of hot air ballooning in Cappadocia three decades ago.
