Hi! As we do not fly high enough for a change in temperature, you will just need to dress for the temperature of the day. You will, however, be outside for about 3 hours, so we recommend you dress as if you were to go for a hike. Dress in casual, comfortable clothing and please wear flat, enclosed footwear (no high heels or open toe shoes). You may also want to bring along a hat and sunglasses - and don't forget your camera!
