If every activity has its own risks, it is also true that the balloon is one of the safest means of transportation ever, because it flies in almost perfect weather conditions and it never reach the limit, and all of this it is regulated by very precise rules dictated by the Civil Aviation Ministry of Transport.
It is very simple, the balloon flies early in the morning when generally the currents are sweet and there are no thermal winds and due to the the fact that the balloon is gently transported by the wind you can control it with safety without danger. Floating in the air where the choice of the quota is that of the currents that will move the ball, it goes up and down depending on the speed of the wind. This flight is based on one of the physical principles that regulate our entire life on this planet, that is the hot air goes up and the cold air is at the bottom. Only a (impossible) change in the laws of nature and physics could change these dynamics, so those who are on a balloon basket are in a much safer place than many others on the mainland.
