Overview

Riding in a hot air balloon has got to be the most beautiful way to fly and a totally unforgettable experience. Take a weekday flight at dawn or dusk and see the most incredible views over The Midlands. Begin on the ground by meeting the pilot and having a safety briefing, before getting hands-on and helping to prepare and inflate the balloon. Once in the air, see gorgeous landscape views and reach heights of up to 3,000 feet in tranquil atmosphere. With feet firmly back on solid land, help to pack away the balloon then get a lift back to the launch site and receive a certificate to take home. Balloon operators vary, with some offering a slightly longer flight and others a glass of champagne on landing. Truly the most serene way to fly!

In a Nutshell
  • Take a hot air balloon flight on a weekday at sunrise or sunset
  • Reach dizzy heights and get incredible views
  • Travel from a launch site in The Midlands
  • All flights are provided by certified CAA approved operators
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    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 the balloon 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.
