Hot Air Balloon Market: Introduction
- A hot air balloon is light in weight consisting of a bag, called an envelope, which contains heated air. A hot air balloon carries passengers and a source of heat, in most cases an open flame generated by burning liquid propane. The heated air inside the envelope makes it buoyant, since it has a lower density than the colder air outside the envelope.
