Ruby Balloon Floating over Norfolk

More About Us

G-BXXO I have been ballooning for more years than I care to think about and wanted to let people know how to get started in this sport.

So here is some information on how to get involved.

First a bit about me, I have a balloon which is called Ruby 2, she has an aircraft registration of G-BXXO and we are based in the Wymondham area of Norfolk in the UK. The balloon is a British made Lindstrand B90 hot-air balloon.

Some people want to learn to fly a balloon, crew the balloon, fly in a balloon or just take pictures of balloons. You could even make a career in ballooning, some people travel the world either as a pilot or as support crew.

If you want to get involved in ballooning in any way, helping to launch the balloon would be an excellent place to start. You can see how it all fits together and decide what you would like to do.

Whatever you want to do you are welcome to talk to us and come and see my balloon and even help launch it.

As a thank you to people that help, I often fly them and their friends, so you have nothing to lose.
