We had a great ride. Jon handled everything extremely well. Very professional and reassuring, also informative and fun. Serene flight and hardly felt an impact on landing. Unforgettable.

Amazing experience. Jon was a great pilot and very informative. The flight was very smooth and a soft landing. I would recommend it for anyone. Will do it again one day.

Isn't this one thing we all need to do at least once in a lifetime. Was a gentle take off and calming serene flight over some beautiful countryside. The staff were all knowledgeable and competent. Lack of loo facilities had us heading for the nearest...More

I'm planning on booking an early morning flight in early October from Derbyshire. Is it more likely to be cancelled at this time of year and/or location? Thanks!

There are 3 sites in Derbyshire so wind direction is less of a problem. Weather is the main issue, they can't fly in poor visibility such as rain or fog. Goodness knows what the weather will be like in Oct this year - a good... More

We have tried booking 10 times in all seasons and are still yet to go up. Has anyone actually flown from the Derbyshire venues? We are looking to book from Shugborough as know of a few occasions balloon flights have actually taken off from there from friends/family when discussing our bookings which used to be mildly amusing but is beyond a joke now! I appreciate every cancellation has been due to bad weather but we have been trying for 2 years now.
