Balloon tethered a Weddoings & Parties
  • © 2023 Contact Me 0

A hot air balloon makes a great focal point at a corporate function or wedding and ABC Flights has been helping to create a memorable day for our customers, for 30 years. We need an area of grass 50 metres x 50 metres with vehicle access, no overhead obstructions or cables and no street furniture such as lamp post or benches. The team will arrive a few hours before your planned event and arrange 3 vehicles which act as 'anchor points' to which the balloon is attached. When the balloon is fully inflated and stands upright, the vehicles are positioned to ensure that the balloon can be safely controlled by the Pilot, with a crew member in the downwind vehicle controlling the length of that tether rope, under the supervision of the Pilot. By driving slowly towards the balloon basket, the Pilot is able to control the balloon's ascent and when the balloon is at the desired height - usually 20-30 feet above ground - the vehicle stops. To descend, the Pilot instructs the crew member to reverse the vehicle slowly and this gently lowers the balloon. We are usually happy to take guests in the balloon basket for a short tehered flight, subject to prevailing weather conditions on the day.
