Overview

Take a flight in what is surely the most iconic way to travel - a hot air balloon. Take a friend or loved one for a ride at sunrise over The Midlands English countryside. Upon arriving at the launch site, meet the pilot and help to prepare and inflate the balloon, ready for take-off. Once in the basket, the balloon launches and the beautiful sights of The Midlands become stretched out before you. Reaching heights of up to 3,000 feet, the balloon moves with the wind and the tranquillity and peace is unrivalled. Upon landing, help to pack away the balloon and catch a ride back to the launch site to take home a certificate as a memento. Balloon operators vary, with some offering a slightly longer flight and others a glass of champagne on landing.

In a Nutshell
  • A romantic and peaceful flight at the break of day
  • Take the flight on any weekday at sunrise
  • Travel from a launch site in The Midlands
  • All flights are provided by certified CAA approved operators
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Weekday mornings (excluding bank holidays) from March/April to October/November. Flights take place at dawn, when the air is at its most stable. Dates fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.
  • Participant Guidelines
    Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum height is 4'6''. Minimum age is 8. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Not suitable for pregnant women. 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 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.
