Welcome on board!
My name is Jan Suchy and I am the owner and founder of Balloon Adventures Prague.
What made me start the business? It was definitey my passion for ballooning as well as my interest in the international environment. Why not to provide a lifetime experience to the visitors of Prague?
I have grown up around balloons. My parents have been involved with ballooning ever since I was born. My father, Michael, took me for the first flight when I was 3 years old. Balloon pilot's license came in at the age of 19 and by now I have gained over 800 hours on hot-air balloons. And my mom? She still works for the manufacturer and actually sews the balloons!
When I moved to Prague to study at the university I knew I want to have my own ballooning company and adjust the service the way I feel it is right. And I did. I was lucky enough to put together a group of friends around me. With the same enthusiasm and passion, we have built a company which is now the leader on the ballooning market for international clients. We are very proud and happy to work for you.

National record holders
On February 25, 2017 at 7:07 am local time, Jan and Andrew took off to the skies in the northern Bohemia to set a new national record. Within the unbeleivable next 10 hours, they crossed 3 countries and 3 major cities to cover a distance of 550 km. The landing of the Ricoh balloon was in Tazlar, Hungary, a little village close to the border with Serbia. They became the first Czechs to officially achieve such balloon flight.
