I like the idea, but may I propose ideas from my version of balloons. First, I think the wind would be a pain to use and add to the game so controlling the balloon with the movement keys would be smart. No need to hold shift to move because the size would be just like a minecart so you couldn't move anyways. Maybe hold shift to hop out so you don't accidentally when adding to structures up high!
I like the rope though!!

I like it, but I think that it should have the craft effect similar to the Nether where you ignite a door of obsidian. You should place the basket and all that underneath a heading of wool which is 3x3 on the top, and has one block down from each side. This way, you can edit the color instead of flying in a dead cow skin.
