Hot air ballooning provides an aerial thrill like no other! With feet on the ground, meet the pilot and get a flight safety briefing before helping to prepare and inflate the hot air balloon alongside other flyers. Then everyone climbs into the basket ready for launch. Fly at heights up to 3,000 feet, enjoying views of the countryside and the quiet tranquillity of the air and clouds, flying with no wind resistance. After landing, help the crew pack the balloon away, before enjoying a celebratory glass of champagne or a soft drink and a drive back to the launch site (who knows where the landing might happen - balloons cannot be steered) for the presentation of a commemorative flight certificate. This aerial adventure is a most serene way to fly.

In a Nutshell
  • Choose to fly any day of the week, either morning or evening
  • Drift along at heights of up to 3,000 feet
  • Travel from launch sites in Yorkshire
  • After landing, toast the flight with a glass of champagne or soft drink
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Weekends and weekdays from March/April to October/November at most venues. Flights take place at dawn or dusk, when the air is most stable. Dates fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.
  • Participant Guidelines
    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.
  • Weather
    Ballooning is extremely weather dependent - it is crucial to call the venue before the flight. If postponed, an alternative date and location can be arranged (please contact the operator for information).
  • Duration
    Actual flight length is determined by the conditions on the day. The experience normally lasts around three hours, including one hour for inflating the balloon and one hour for packing the balloon away and returning to the launch site.
  • Numbers on the Day
    Share with between 8 -16 other flyers, plus a qualified pilot.
  • Dress Code
    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.
