I eventually got my 60th birthday wish to go up in a hot air balloon. It took us nearly 18 months after the initial date because of the awful summer this year and last year but it was well worth the wait. The organisation of the afternoon could not be faulted, this company is family run and they all join in on the day, even the kids help. We had a lovely flight, with good commentary by the pilot, Michael, and a faultless landing. We felt very safe all the way through. They also put a lot of pictures on a CD and we had that within a few days, with excellent pics from the boom on the balloon. At the end of the event we were given a glass of champagne or bucks fizz. We can also recommend The New Inn, Etchinghill, which is just down the road, for an exellent meal.

Thank you for your wonderful review of your recent 'birthday' flight! I would personally like to thank you for your patience and understanding of the weather and how this effects ballooning, particularly after a 'summer' like we have just had!!! I am so pleased that we finally got you and your family airborne and on such a beautiful afternoon with some fantastic views across the coastline of Kent. We are glad that you enjoyed your photo's and we hope they will help you relive the memories for a long time yet!
We hope to see you in the skies of Kent again soon!
