A Return to the Balearics
Over the last couple of months, Lindstrand Technologies Ltd has been installing its newest HiFlyer system on the island of Ibiza, in the Mediterranean.
This is the first tethered HiFlyer aerostat on the island, but for Lindstrand Technologies is a welcome return after an absence of several years in this part of the world.
As the UK recorded its wettest period on record between April to June 2012, the Lindstrand installation team were enjoying wall to wall sunshine and blue skies on the ever popular Mediterranean island.
This HiFlyer is certified as an aircraft under EASA regulations, and has passed all its inspections in order to allow it to now take fare paying passengers.
Located in San Antonio de Portmany, better known to thousands of British holidaymakers as the liveliest nightspot in the Mediterranean, the HiFlyer holds an unenviable position on the sea front. This location ensures that the balloon receives maximum exposure to all visitors to the resort.
The owner of the newest attraction in San Antonio has secured sponsorship with one of the largest night club operators in the area, and hopes to develop the balloon site into a thriving activity/ entertainment centre.
