30 Years Experience
Balloons Over Britain is a syndicate of smaller regional operators. Most of our members have been operating passenger balloon rides for 30 years or more! This gives us an unparalleled wealth of experience that allows us to achieve the highest operating standards regardless of which location you fly from!
All of our pilots hold unrestricted commercial pilot’s licenses, issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. Many of our pilots have thousands of hours of experience. Additionally, each year all of our pilots have to undertake a flight examination and medical assessment. These rigorous procedures ensure passenger safety standards are kept at the highest level.
All of our balloons are thoroughly inspected every year or every 100 hours of flying (whichever occurs first) by a CAA licensed maintenance organisation. Consequently, they are awarded a certificate of airworthiness by the Civil Aviation Authority. Because our balloons are classed as Public Transport Category aircraft, they are held to the same standards as any airline you would use to go on holiday!
Civil Aviation Authority Approved
Established over 30 years ago, many of our operators were amongst the UK’s earliest hot air balloon companies to be granted an Air Operator Certificate. Every year our operators are audited by the Civil Aviation Authority to ensure that we are delivering a consistently high level of safety and professionalism to our passengers.
