To be able to fly in a hot air balloon you need to be able to climb in and out of the basket unaided. The basket stands 120cm high and has two foot holds woven into the side of it. You can use these foot holds like a ladder to climb in and out of the basket.

Once you are in the basket you need to be able to stand for 1 hour and be able to brace yourself for landing.  The impact of landing can be like jumping off a small chair. If we have any doubts about your ability to do this we will ask you to show us before we allow you on board the balloon. If you have any concerns please talk to us well before you are due to fly.
