Sunset flights are available November through March. Make sure you bring your camera!
The sunset flight adventure begins late-afternoon as you meet Rainbow Ryders at our corporate office. After check-in, you’ll step into our chase vehicles and be driven to one of our various launch sites. From there the pilots will begin the inflation process, giving you the opportunity to become an involved, “hands on” crew member as the gentle giants come to life. You may also choose to observe inflation and take pictures as the sun ventures across the Albuquerque sky.
At lift off you’ll embark upon a journey of uniqueness. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Rio Grande Valley and majestic Sandia Mountains while floating across the sky. Send your greetings to the earthbound folks below!
After landing, enjoy a celebratory toast and post-flight refreshments to end your safe and memorable adventure. You will be presented with a flight certificate to commemorate your aeronautical experience.
