Balloon flight West Sussex

We fly from East Hampshire or the adjoining edge of West Sussex. We refer to this area as the Hampshire Sussex border where we utilise six possible balloon launch sites. These are at Chichester, West Meon, Petersfield, Fernhurst, Farnham or Duncton. The actual launch site is chosen by us on the day or previous evening, dependant on wind direction and speed. Morning flights go from West Meon or Farnham.

From any of these hot air rides sites you will have a magnificent view of the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park and the sea beyond.

We are restricted by Southampton, Farnborough, Shoreham and Gatwick Airspace plus the English Channel to the south. The prevailing winds used to be from the South West but in recent years have become less predictable. Whether this is as a result of Global Warming we are not qualified to say.

Our aim is to conduct a safe and enjoyable hot air balloon flight with views of the South Downs without the annoyance of having to postpone flights on a perfectly flyable day because the wind direction is in the wrong direction for a given launch site.
