12020 Us Highway 20, Hampshire, IL 60140 (Click address for directions)

Directions to the airport:

Sky Soaring Airport and Nostalgia Ballooning is Located just 25 miles west of Schaumburg in the serene Hampshire countryside, 45 minutes North West of Chicago on I 90 exit 42, about 15 minutes past Woodfield Mall.

Take the Northwest Toll Road (Rt. 90) west from Chicago to exit 42 (exit 36 is closed due to highway construction)!  At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn northwest (left) onto Route 20.  Sky Soaring is 1/4 mile down along Rt. 20 on the north side of the road.  The large red hanger and wind sock will be easily visible.

Please do not rely on GPS. For some reason some GPS software has passengers directed to a local neighborhood. We will not be able to give direction over the phone while setting up. Once you have turned left on Rt.20, the location is less than two minutes on the right. There will be no balloons visible from the road and due to town ordinances the only sign will be on the red hanger which says, Sky Soaring Airport. The entrance is a gated, gravel road between guardrails and can easily be missed.  We have included pictures below of the airport. Please view them and get familiar with our location prior to the flight. Flights missed because of GPS guidance being incorrect is not the fault of Nostalgia Ballooning and your voucher may be voided. To avoid this happening we have made every effort to help you get to our location.
