Frequently Asked Questions
Of course! It’s great to see so many people watching our hot air balloons launching. We would ask them not to follow the balloon though, as our experienced ground crew will chase the balloon and bring all the passengers back to the launch site.
Unfortunately, we are not able to fly anyone that is pregnant at any stage. We appreciate that disabilities are wide and varied and we would like to be able to take you flying if we can, so please do get in touch before booking and we can discuss the possibilities.
On our balloons we have a camera that suspends outside of the balloon looking towards the basket. Your pilot will take a number of photos and videos during your flight, which you can purchase later. We ask for a suggested donation of £10, but you can of course donate as much as you want. All of the money from these sales goes towards the Down’s Syndrome Association and the MND Association (Motor Neurone Disease).
We aim to fly for around an hour, but expect the whole experience to last between 3 and 4 hours. We think our passengers get much more out of their experience when they help out with the inflation of the balloon and packing away at the other end as well. You’ll be given a full safety briefing before your flight and of course we’ll all get to enjoy a glass a Champagne afterwards!
We can fly anyone from the age of 9 to 109! There is no limit on the age, but you need to be able to see over our basket which is around 4ft 4” tall. Anyone under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult. There is no weight limit either, but we do ask for your weight when you book your flight. This is just so that we can make sure we balance our weights across the basket evenly with other passengers.
