Can there be a more relaxed way to fly than in a hot air balloon? We at TrackDays.co.uk don’t think so.
Our packages offer you the opportunity to experience the oldest form of human flight, which hasn’t changed that dramatically since the first flight in France some 200 years ago.
Indeed, many of the principles remain the same, now with a gondola or wicker basket hanging below the balloon, known as the envelope. Hot air from a burner propels you skyward while a vent is opened and closed allowing the balloon to ascend or descend, which also helps steer the craft.
So, let TrackDays.co.uk lift you above the clouds with our hot air balloon ride experiences at locations across the UK, which take off not just from airfields but also from hotel grounds and fields, among other places.
Indeed, it definitely won’t be a struggle to get out of bed early for one of our magical sunrise Champagne balloon flights.
Drift among the clouds, with just the birds for company, and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the beautiful British countryside.
The peaceful serenity of a hot air balloon ride is unmatched and allows you the opportunity to gaze down as you float above fields and picture postcard villages that are draped in the soft morning sunlight.
However, before you take off, you’ll help prepare the balloon so it’s ready for the flight, including helping to inflate it. Soon it’s time to climb into the basket and relax as your experienced pilot takes control.
The excitement doesn’t even finish after you’ve landed as the Champagne is popped open as you and your fellow passengers relive the experience in detail, recollecting your own personal highlights.
The experience finishes with the presentation of a flight certificate from the pilot. It is yours to keep and will forever remind you of a magical time in the sky.
Booking a hot air balloon ride experience, whether it’s sunrise or sunset, as a treat for yourself, or as a gift for a friend, family member, loved one or work colleague, couldn’t be any simpler. Just buy a voucher and look forward to an aerial adventure of a lifetime.
