We are safely back home from the 6. Horber Neckar-Balloncup while our Brithsh friends still have some miles to go! It was a great event again with wonderful weather, only the last flight on Saturday evening had to be cancelled due to thunderstorms in the area – but that finally gave us some time to [...]
Yesterday evening was a tricky one for our competition director: Almost no wind on the ground!

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.
