I have always wanted to experience a hot air balloon flight, and I am very excited to share this with you.

The flight itself lasts about 1 hour, although the activity will last about 3 hours as it includes a briefing, setting up the balloon and enjoying refreshments upon our return.

It shall take place in the early morning. Hot air balloon flights only take place just before sunrise and sunset as they need stable air and during the warmer months, the sun heats up the surface and creates thermals.

Recommended clothing: comfortable clothing and shoes with flat soles. The temperature is not much colder than on the ground and you will be in a balloon that is full of hot air.

For those of you who may be worried about vertigo; hot air ballooning is very gentle and stable. You gently lift up and do not feel this in the pit of your stomach. The sensation is very different from fixed-wing aircraft flight.

There will be a pilot in the balloon with us :)

We shall be taking off in the area of Ghent. We shall be carpooling for this and will leave 2 hours before our meetup time with the organisers so that we have a buffer for any delays.
If anybody has a car that they can help us carpool with please say so in the group comment section. We will share the costs for the petrol.

Please pay by Monday 24th June: Protected content
