Barry DiLibero, the pilot and owner of AApex Sunrides, loves to share his experience of flying quietly across the sky, experiencing forward movement that is powered by the wind. To Barry, “flying with the wind” means that there is no wind in the basket in a normal-leveled flight. It's as if the balloon is staying still and the world is scrolling by, until you pick a handful of leaves from a tree, or the basket gently settles on the surface of a pond. Then, you realize, balloons are not powered by propane, or wind, but by magic.
