Virgin Balloon Flights’ chief pilot wins major ballooning prize

Congratulations to our chief pilot and director Kenneth Karlstrom who won the prize for top pilot at the famous Lorraine Mondial Air Balloons event held near Metz, France, in late July. The experienced Swedish flyer beat 120 other pilots by scoring more points in the competition to drop markers onto targets or ‘goals’ on the ground, which required some real precision flying. After an excellent display in his light and nimble Virgin ‘77’ balloon, Kenneth picked up an impressive glass trophy and a massive bottle of Champagne.

Kenneth said he was delighted with the victory and thoroughly enjoyed the event. Join Virgin Balloon Flights for a hot air balloon ride over Britain
