The smallest aircraft I already flew with, was a small propeller plane with 18 seats. Because such a small plane won’t fly hight, you can see much on the ground. But that’s nothing compared to a balloon flight. You’re not inside a cabin and it is quiet, when the heater is stopped. The heater usually works
only for a few seconds.
See the landscape, streets, houses, deers, birds and other balloons from above. Maybe your even able to touch the clouds.
We started early at 7 a.m. and traveled during our 75 minutes flight 13 km. Our max speed was nearly 60 kmh, according to my gps logger.
