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!!

Thanks to Exclusive Ballooning for a fantastic weekend.

We know everyone is wondering how many balloons flew in our biggest and best mass ascent on saturday morning… We are excited, thrilled and incredibly proud to confirm that a massive 119 balloons took to the sky.

With the most balloons in flight during a single launch – as well as the largest balloon competition ever to take place in the UK, The Exclusive Cup @Longleat is now officially the home of the UK’s largest balloon festival.
Lots of pictures and videos to follow…

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.

To join our new lightweight Expedition Series, we are delighted to introduce “Nomad”.

Nomad is the perfect companion to the Expedition Series, lightweight and portable it opens up a world of options.

Want to go to the Far East with your balloon for a weekend? Now you can just check it all into the hold of a standard plane as luggage, avoiding any expensive shipping costs!!

Nomad is a compatible with Lindstrand Technologies envelopes up to 70,000 cu.ft. and larger sizes of the basket will be available in the near future.

Please contact for further information.

The Lindstrand Cloudhopper and G-OPER are at the Vangollen festival in Llangollen this weekend. They had a beautiful flight this AM over the very picturesque countryside

We are happy announce we have updated our Type Certificate to include the following envelope sizes!

Series 1-210, Series 1-240, Series 1-260, Series 1- 300 and Series 1-310.

We look forward to these sizes taking to the skies very soon!
