Hi 403alexd, We're so thrilled you could still enjoy ballooning given your accident - it makes it accessible for so many and we couldn't be happier to be the only ballooning company in Australia to offer the Easy Access Basket. Eddie is a wonderful Pilot - we're glad he was a great host! Thanks for taking the time to review us, Kate & the team at Global Ballooning Australia
