Details

This Weekday Morning Hot Air Balloon Experience will make you feel on top of the world while floating across the countryside from launch sites across the UK. Start your experience off by meeting your veteran pilot for a safety talk, before assisting the inflation and preparation of the balloon with the crew and other flyers. Once everything is ready to go, jump into the basket and head to the skies. Your balloon will rise up to 3,000 feet, while you take in astounding birds-eye views of the Midlands. Your Hot Air Balloon Experience in the Midlands will tranquilly soar through the clouds.

 

Once you have safely returned to solid ground, get stuck in to packing the balloon away. All balloon operators do vary, with some offering slightly longer balloon rides and others offer a glass of champagne on landing. This is truly the best and most serene way to fly. Your flights are available weekdays and weekends from March/April to October/November. All flights take place at dusk or dawn, as this is when the air is most stable. The dates available do fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.

Maximum weight 18 stone. Minimum height 4'6''. Minimum age is 8. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Ballooning isn't suitable for pregnant women. Any medical conditions must be declared in advance.

Share the balloon with between 8 -16 other flyers, plus a qualified pilot.

Spectators are welcome to watch the launch and wave you off. A pair of binoculars or a camera will come in handy.

Wear trousers, long sleeves and sensible footwear (no high heels please). Please avoid loose scarves or jewellery. Bring a hat - the heat from the burner overhead can be intense. Launch and landing sites can be muddy
