I was given a flight as a Christmas present and EVENTUALLY the weather coincided with a date that I could fly. Right from when the crew arrived and we helped take the basket off the truck, helped inflate the balloon, took off, landed, helped deflate the balloon it was an amazing experience. Whilst flying Steve (our pilot) told us what was going on, which was great. The views of the sun over the solent (breaking through the clouds) was so beautiful, a photograph, just never could do it justice.

My husband and I flew from Prested Hall , check in at 6.30pm final arrival 9.30.we were in the air for approx. 90 mins It was a joint anniversary present The whole experience was excellent. My husband does not like heights but was distracted by the beautiful views and the peace and quiet as we glided over the fields. We were very lucky to have an excellent pilot and support team. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Throughly enjoyed our flight from Perth Airport last week. The pilot was excellent, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble including packing up the ballooon at fist launch site (due to flog) and moving to another location to reinflate the ballooon again! Marvelous experience especially as we flew on first booking.
