Spencer is never happier than when he's up in the air flying a hot air balloon wherever the wind takes him.

He pilots our balloon in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire and first joined Virgin Balloon Flights as a pilot back in 2008.

Spencer has been flying hot air balloons since 1997 and comes from a family of balloonists - his brother is also pilot, as was their father back in the 1970s.

He has flown across the English Channel twice and became a commercial balloon pilot in 2004. His favourite places to fly are the Alps and the beautiful Chilterns area of outstanding natural beautiful right here in the UK.

When he's not flying our big red balloon, Spencer is a big Rugby Union fan. He still plays in the veterans and also coaches at his local rugby club.

Join Spencer for a balloon ride over Aylesbury, High Wycombe or Berkhamsted.
