Lindstrand crew spent May bank holidays in hard work installing and inflating the brand new HiFlyer on the picturesque Torbay coast. After weeks of weather delays, residents and visitors of Torquay finally saw the giant tethered balloon rising high above the city and the bay.
Not without controversy and protests, the overall perception of the new attraction is very positive and optimistic as the City Mayor, Mr. Nick Bye, says: “It is already generating regional and national publicity which has to be a good thing in attracting more people into the Bay”.
The owner and operator of the Torquay HiFlyer, Lindstrand AeroPlatforms expects the official launch of the attraction to be held around the middle of May after the health and safety inspection is carried out by Torbay Council, and the correspondent license is obtained from Civil Aviation Authority.
