UK Balloon Flights.
A hot air balloon flight is a once in a lifetime experience. It offers you an exhilarating, unique opportunity to see the world from a different perspective.
The page that you have requested does not exists. It was probably removed during a recent update.
The balloon tracks were recorded using a GARMIN GPS 12XL and plotted using software from www.gpsvisualizer.com.
The information in this section is primarily intended for our regular balloon crew. Some pages in this section are restricted to our crew for reasons of privacy.
The balloon cannot be set up and inflated safely by the pilot alone, therefore the hot air balloon crew will usually be asked to help with one of the following duties:
An evening flight from the west of Bath on the 16 June 2006. The light winds to us on an easterly track over the centre of historic Bath. You can also view a track of the flight here.
All our current selection of used hot air balloon equipment has been sold.
For items in the UK visit The Zebedee List which has a comprehensive selection of secondhand balloons in the UK.
Below is the track of a hot air balloon flight over Bristol. The launch site was from the Ashton Court estate just before 6am on 17th April 2006. There was a 20 knot gradient wind forecast for this flight and the expected track was around 090 degrees, taking us east over Bristol. The landing was made on common land near Oldland after about 40 minutes. The total distance covered on this balloon flight was approximately 20 km.
