Welcome to First Flight

With us you can buy your Hot Air Balloon ride with the confidence you will be flying with the very best. The company is owned and operated by myself, who with my great support team have been providing champagne balloon flights in the local area for over 20 years

I always fly the balloon myself so you can be assured that you will be flying with one of the most experienced pilots in the country. As it's my business, I take a great deal of pride in providing wonderful, balloon flights that are a memorable adventure for all involved.
