Welcome to the World of Hot-Air Ballooning!

Since the revival of hot air ballooning in the 1960's, this ancient form of transport has proven to be the safest airborne experience available to the general public.

Modern fabrics and technology, combined with high training standards and C.A.A. certified maintenance requirements, have produced a safety record which is the envy of all other forms of aviation.
