Butterfly Balloons is just what we always wanted! Our ideal boutique enterprise evolving from 25 years of first-class skills and combined piloting experience in Cappadocia and around the world
Mustafa Turgut, Founding Director, and Mike Green, Chief Pilot have made flying here a cottage industry; from the minibus driver who collects you, the kitchen guy who filters your morning coffee and chills the champagne, to the crew that chase your balloon…. all are locals, family and friends who love Cappadocia with a passion and want to share it with you.
The ‘Butterfly Way’ of ballooning in Cappadocia has jolted a few other companies to re-assess their flight procedures to strive for greater customer satisfaction and increased safety systems. We are proud to be their inspiration.
Our Founding Director Mustafa Turgut, sadly passed away in May 2014. Mustafa was a foreword thinking and inspirational young man who had an exciting vision for hospitality, travel and global partnerships. He founded Butterfly Balloons on a love for that vision and a genuine desire to bring together people, regardless of race, religion or culture, to share one of the greatest wonders of our world – Cappadocia.
The Butterfly family continues to follow Mustafa’s vision with his spirit, energy, laughter and huge sense of adventure. Join us and make some unforgettable memories! Each year we really do look forward to making new friends and sharing the breath-taking landscape of Cappadocia from the air.
BUTTERFLY BRIGHT FLIGHT
When our Butterfly Flight is full we don’t like to disappoint you so we offer the Bright Flight. The Civil Aviation has limited the number of balloons in the sky at any one time so we reserve 2 balloons to fly a little later with full permission from the authorities.
What is the difference between a Bright Flight and a Butterfly Flight?
Absolutely nothing in terms of service, flight quality and a fabulous Butterfly experience. However, you do get an extra hour in bed!
This flight takes off approximately 30 minutes after the first round of balloons depart. We have a full hour of flight in the full glory of daylight. We see the first flight balloons floating below as they prepare to land and then we can indulge ourselves in bigger skies and the spectacular panorama of Cappadocia.
