    We waited a long time for our balloon flight and after lots of cancellations due to the weather we eventually took to the air on Thursday 5th May 2022. Our pilot and crew (Peter, Andy and Sean) were amazing and the experience was stunning. The views were brilliant and we felt completely safe at all times. Even the return to earth was very gentle and bump free! We would very much recommend this experience as something to add to your bucket list. Just be patient - it will happen.

    Haven’t been cancelled due to chief pilot weather report which I did not agree with on a beautiful day in Cornwall

    What a great balloon ride. We have been ballooning in NAPA but this was better. While not quite as polished, it was more fun. Steve and his crew were awesome. What made this experience better was that we got to participate in the process. We helped unload the balloon and basket and inflate the balloon. Once we were up, the countryside was beautiful. Steve talked along the ride about ballooning and such. Once we landed, we had champagne and got to help put the balloon equipment away. It was so much more fun to see how the whole operation went. I would highly recommend it.

    Ich hatte große Angst vor dieser Fahrt- es war ein Geschenk für meinem Mann. Als wir dann abgehoben haben und ich in die Ferne schauen konnte war alles vergessen. Es war eines der schönsten Erlebnisse in unserem Leben! Die Crew war sehr sympathisch, kompetent und klärte uns über den Ablauf genauestens auf. Ein Wahnsinns Event!👍🏻❤️ Jederzeit wieder Christine und Günther aus Wien

    We were quite nervous about the balloon ride having been given the voucher as a suprise gift. Since a hot air balloon has no direct means of steerage or control the weather is an all important factor when deciding whether or not to fly. We were lucky on our 3rd attempt. Our 3rd booking meant travelling from Dorset to Launceston but we were so pleased that this happened as it meant that our pilot was Arthur Street who is an absolute legend in the Ballooning world. Arthur counts his balloon flights in tens of thousands after 25 years of piloting. We met at Homeleigh Garden Centre near Launceston at 0630 along with 12 other passengers. The ground crew, Matt and Marianne (Little and Large) dealt with everything in a very professional manner but also somehow very relaxed and reassuring. It was all very workaday and routine for them Absolutely no reason for any anxiety. We traveled in the Aerosaurus vehicles to the launch site near North Petherwin. The 'envelope' (balloon) is huge - much larger than we expected. The passengers all help to get it inflated on the ground. Arthur gave a comprehensive briefing - and informed us that the most difficult thing we would face would be climbing into the basket. (there is an option of being in the basket while it is on its side and being gently scooped up if physical disability prevents a passenger from clambering in ). So that was alright then . Once inflated and heated up (quite noisy) the tether from the land rover was released and we were off - up, up and away. We gained height really quickly. There were a few moments of 'wow this is quite high' - but that was all. We just really enjoyed being up there. Arthur was fantastic and gave us 360 degree panoramic views and information about what we could see. We had total confidence in him Early on in the flight the champagne was opened (DO add this on when booking) and I'm sure this helped to contribute to the relaxed convivial atmosphere on board. Arthur negotiated the obstacles of the A30 and Roadford Lake with great skill - but it did mean we had a few extra minutes up in the air. The landing was gentle with just a slight bump. Marianne and Matt had tracked us from the ground and were there to help with packing up. The farmer was very cooperative and helped us all out of the slightly boggy field we had landed in. Once everything was packed away it was back to Homeleigh Garden Centre for breakfast and the all important certificate. Highly recommended. It is not at all scary and just a wonderful experience. . Thank you Arthur, Matt and Marianne for an unforgettable experience.

    Booking Ref #39528 Flight from Kings Head Fivelanes on 7 June 2016 A group of my friends united to purchase a Hot Air balloon Flight to remind me that age is all in the mind. Despite during my career having travelled tens of thousands of air miles and having no anxieties as regard this form of air transport as a lifelong vertigo sufferer I must admit to being slightly apprehensive of ascending in a hot air balloon. However I need not have worried as the ground crew (Marianne & Matthew) and especially the pilot on this flight (Arthur Street) allayed my fears by their enthusiasm and thoroughly professional approach to all aspects of ballooning (even before we set off) and throughout the flight. Once in the air, and apart from the occasional “burn” needed to keep us buoyant, I was truly amazed at the profound serenity and calming effect that this mode of flight offers. It appears that all passengers on our flight were also novices and some were also afraid of heights but we soon agreed that the wonderful experience of calmly floating across the countryside below us rapidly dispelled all our qualms. I cannot express my gratitude enough (to all concerned) in making my initiation into the world of hot air ballooning such a memorable and agreeable moment to savour in my senior years. Well done to all the team and many thanks for all your assistance in making the day such an outstanding occasion.

    Had a wonderful balloon trip on Wednesday evening. Arthur was extremely hospitable and professional. I felt safe in his capable hands and having been my third balloon ride, was the best landing I’ve experienced to date! My husband – whose birthday treat this was for – loved it too. He’s not good with heights but didn’t feel at all uncomfortable or concerned during the flight. It was a comment I heard from other guests on board, so a great flight all round I imagine.

    After a couple of false starts for weather we were off for our flight, just an amazing experience. The pilot and ground crew were very professional and efficient and the whole experience was superb. Very well organised and we'll definitely go again to see some more of this beautiful part of the country from the air.
