Glorious Autumn Days

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

The weather has been up and down during October, but there have been a few days when the sun has been shining and the wind has been light.  Once we get into November we start running our standby system where we only plan flights with two or three days notice, when we know the weather forecast is good.  That way it avoids lots of disappointment when the weather isn’t right.  Cold, bright, crisp Autumn days can be fabulous for ballooning.

Cross Channel Challenge

Monday, October 25th, 2010

We have all been on standby since the 1st October to take part in a record attempt for 75 balloons to fly across the channel.  As yet the weather and wind direction have not been right.  We have had a couple of times when we thought it may happen but the weather patterns have been changing quite quickly.  We are on standby until the end of the month but at the moment the wind and weather doesn’t look like we will be going before the 31st.  We are hoping that the organisers will extend to period into November to enable the flight to go ahead.

We finally get Kate up in the air!

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Paul had his first flight with us for his 40th Birthday.  He got hooked and since then has been crewing for us.  Even though he has moved away from the area he still comes crewing as much as he can.  Kate, Paul’s wife, has never flown in a balloon, even though Paul has been crewing for nearly 10 years.  Some of their friends were visiting from Belgium and after watching the balloon launch last year decided they would like to fly this years, so Kate decided that she would go up with them.  Friday 27th August was the day and Kate’s thankyou card says it all really – “Just wanted to say thanks for my flight last Friday, it was a great experience and I can sort of see what all the fuss is about now!”
