Although it may seem ‘proper’ and appropriate to be modest and humble regarding one’s achievements and never fish for compliments or broadcast such achievements in a mildly viral manner… there’s nothing wrong with letting our lovely passengers do the talking!

The Virgin Balloon Flights season has got off to a flying start and we have happy peeps throughout England, Scotland, and Wales itching to tell us how “fantastic” and “amazing” their balloon trips have been. Thanks to some pretty kind spring weather (I should think so after all that snow!), 2010 looks set to be one of our best years ever.

My husband and I flew with your Devon crew- Richard Prowse and Co on Thursday evening (8/4/10)…… I had the time of my life…… I can honestly say that I was not scared at all during the Virgin balloon flight; the pilot and crew were very friendly, well organised, and professional at all times. The flight was so smooth, and the views were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend the flight to all my family and friends. Once again, I would like to thank everyone and let you know that I will definitely be arranging another flight with you in the future.” Mrs R Schutt, Devon.

“I enjoyed the flight and the whole experience a lot ….. For me, the teamwork, the preparation, take-off, flight, and ‘taking down’ were all great fun (although clearly, the flight was breathtaking!). Once again, thanks to you and the team for what was a very well organised day.” Mr N Gunn, Bakewell

So, a round of applause, please, for pilot Richard Prowse in Devon, Neal Parry, and Rebecca Cains, who fly in Derbyshire, and all of their crew. If you would like to become airborne like these happy customers, our balloon flights currently start from just £169pp with our special offers, so get set for the experience of a lifetime.
