Reading Time - 2 minutes

We are thrilled to announce a revolutionary breakthrough in hot air balloon technology - a steerable hot air balloon!

Cameron Balloons, a renowned name in the realm of cutting-edge aeronautical design, has recently unveiled a new type of hot air balloon that revolutionises the sport as we know it.

This unparalleled latest innovation introduces steering capabilities to the world of hot air ballooning, transforming not only the overall experience but also expanding the horizons in terms of possibilities and applications.

Virgin Balloon Flights, a leading hot air balloon operator, is proud to be the very first to implement and utilise this ground-breaking new advanced technology, offering passengers and adventurers an entirely new level of control, stability, and excitement as they gracefully navigate the skies.

As we witness the dawn of a new era in hot air ballooning, adventure enthusiasts and aspiring aviators alike can look forward to an enhanced and enthralling experience that was once thought to be unattainable in the world of lighter-than-air travel.

Cameron Balloon's “B-Wing” launching this season at Virgin Balloon Flights, utilises the fluid mechanics of Bernoulli's principle so you can steer your balloon in flight.

This will allow pilots to target any destination in your hot air balloon.

Incorporating the addition of fins angled at 30° from horizontal, pilots will be able to steer the craft over particular landmarks.

Using the rotation vents to orientate the balloon, the pilot can now fly either forward or backward when the balloon is put into a fast ascent or descent.

This will enable pilots to fly over specific areas of interest or to fly into a desired landing site with ease.

We are incredibly proud to have worked with Cameron Balloons as the first passenger balloon operator to use this innovative new technology, with flights launching shortly.

MJ Ballooning will be providing flight updates for the launch.
