We are always impressed with what people use our balloons for, but this flight needs a special mention. The Opony Express balloon team recently flew their Series 1 -105 from Poland to Sweden, an awesome achievement and a lot of water to cross. Congratulations to the pilots for some stunning flying skills from all of us at Lindstrand.

Przelot balonem nad Bałtykiem

Dwa lata przygotowań zakończone sukcesem. 30 września razem z Mikołajem Jancem przelecieliśmy Bałtyk balonem na ogrzane powietrze. Lot nie odbył by się bez pomocy mojej ekipy: Mateusz Bajończak, Łukasz Kubaczyk, kolegów baloniarzy ze Szwecji Henrik Holmqvist, Anders Holmqvist oraz Polski Daniel Szczurowski i Piotr Ojrzyński który pomagał mi przy meteo. Dziękuje wszystkim, którzy trzymali kciuki i nam kibicowali. Jestem miło zaskoczony tak dużą ilością ciepłych słów i gratulacji. Jeszcze raz dziękuję. Mirosław Kowalski Two years finished success. The 30rd of september toghether with Mikołaj Janc we fly through Baltic Sea in hot air balloon. The flight would be impossible without my Balloon Team: Mateusz Bajończak, Łukasz Kubaczyk and my firends from Sweden Henrik Holmqvist, Anders Holmgvist and Daniel Szczurowski – also ballonist and Piotr Ojrzyński – he helped me in meteorology. I thank all of You, who they kept their fingers crossed and cheered of us. I am really surprised so much warm words and congratulations from people.Mirosław Kowalski

Landing rush hour at the worlds biggest hot air balloon fiesta. Albuquerque!! Per and his team have joined 600 other balloons for 10 days of New Mexican flying.

Another BIG ‘thank you so much’ to all those that came to this year’s Sky Safari and made it so very special (especially those who braved the very wet and windy weather)! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We’ve whipped up this video so we can all relive the best bits

Throw back Thursday, this time last week was the Longleat SkySafari with 18 Lindstrand Technologies balloons flying, we think this is the most to get together in the UK.

Congratulations to Bill Baker who won the Sky Safari in a LTL Series 1 – 105 and to Robin Waite in his Series 2 – 80 who won the draw for the car, the Datum Pro Trophy was also won by another pilot flying a LTL Series 1 -70 Congratulations Chase Donner.

Who would have thought flying a Lindstrand envelope could be so lucky…. we suggest you all go out and buy lottery tickets!!

We have had a fantastic and busy time since announcing our return to the hot air ballooning world in April 2015, and we are very thankful for the support and encouragement shown by balloonists around the world.

During this time we have developed 3 distinct balloon ranges and have a whole host of new innovations in the pipeline.

We recently launched our Expedition Series and Nomad travelling basket, and in the near future we will be launching our new cloudhopper concept.

To celebrate the launch of these new lightweight balloons, we are offering a very special buy-one-get-one-free promotion beginning at Lorraine Mondial Air Ballon and running through autumn. Below are the details of this exciting offer.

For further information about the terms and conditions, please contact our friendly sales team.

On the 3rd July 1987 Per Lindstrand and Richard Brandson set off on their record breaking adventure – The First Atlantic Hot Air Balloon Crossing. This remarkable voyage took place 30 years ago. You can now still re-live the epic adventure by watching the film Don’t Look Down.
