Why choose First Flight?

Our passengers have told us they really rate First Flight's customer service and our approach to flying. We run a professional balloon company that is all about quality and personal service, not quantity. Our smaller passenger balloons allow everyone on board to have the best possible views, have fun and enjoy the flight in comfort. When you call us to book or simply enquire, you are talking to the pilot who is going to be flying you, not someone in a call centre. No waiting lists to book in, simply choose your date, let us know and we will keep in contact with weather updates.

You're in very safe hands with Nigel or Nick. They have been flying passengers since 1990 and are two of the most experienced pilots in the country. "The First Flight team prides itself on providing a very special experience for our customers. We love to share our passion for ballooning with a small group - everyone feels involved in the flight and that adds to the sense of adventure!"
