Ruby Balloon Balloon Meet


G-BXXOFor information on starting up in ballooning, balloons and associated information feel free to browse this site.

Crew normally help with all parts of the flight, from the set up and launch of the balloon, following it whilst in flight to the recovery back to base.

Come along and help after a few times if you want to fly, it can easily be organised.

We do not offer one-off special occasion balloon flights for payment as this is not allowed by the CAA. (If you wish to pursue this option we can arrange this for you with a local commercial balloon operator).
