Shane Robinson , owner and chief pilot of BalloonSport , was also unable to send up his hot-air balloons.It's a total and complete ban , Robinson says of the restrictions on airspace.When they've got military jets shutting everything down , you pretty well know they're serious..Restrictions on airspace continued in different ways for different amounts of time ; some types of flights in certain types of airspace remain restricted now and for the forseeable future.So for businesses such as hot-air balloon flights , skydiving services and charter flights , the days following the attack were fiscally very bleak.Although Aviation Enterprises' schedule looked normal once more two weeks after the attack , the shutdown took a definite bite out of business.
