For the Saturday evening flight, winds finally were low enough to allow the first competition at Szczecinek. For the launch, we had bought some holi colours to shed from the basket… and the fox chase (or hare and hounds, as it is called officially) was quite successful… but more about that later ;-) Thanks again [...]

The passion of a lifetime: To behold the stunning beauty of our world like no one else, free like a bird, high in the sky, yet one with nature, using the oldest principle of flight known to man: Lighter than air.

This is why we live A LIFE OF BALLOONING.
