About us

Firstly – Lets deal with the Elephant in the room. Balloon Crashes.

No one wants to see a balloon crash but this website is not a fluffy balloon image or ride site, we are a news site. We learn from mistakes, we can become better pilots and crew and passengers by learning what to do right and what others have done wrong. So balloon crashes are a part of our news site.
