1. What does the service look like?
At the launch site your pilot and his team are preaparing the balloon. The pilot gives you a safety briefing in English and answers all of your questions.
Then the inflation of the balloon takes place. During the 10 minutes you are welcome to have a little snack, take photos, wander around the balloon and enjoy the show.
You will be then invited on board. After take off you are welcome to take pictures, wave at locals on the ground, talk to your pilot and enjoy the scenery. After 1 hour the pilot searches a landing site (we are not landing where we took off from).
Once landed, we toast to the brave aviators with a bottle of champagne, everybody receives a flight certificate and our car takes you back to your hotel.
Within the next days you will receive pictures from your flight.

Château Konopiště & Franz Ferdinand
Our flight area is located about 40 minutes southeast of Prague, near Château Konopiště.
Château Konopiště is famous for being the last residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, whose assasination in Sarajevo triggered World War I.
Besides the castle, the entire area is in the heart of Central Bohemia offering beatiful views of the river meanders of Sazava, little lakes, meadows and much more... It is the closest gateway for Prague residents, offering a relaxing scenery and the feel of a countryside.
