From project #FlyPenguin and being the first to fly in every U.S. state to our annual Exclusive Cup SkySafari® at Longleat and the official Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta®, there’s always something exciting going on in the Exclusive Ballooning calendar.
These are some of our favourite projects and events and if you’d like to find out more about corporate hospitality at one of our events, flying as a guest in one of our balloons or utilising aerial hot air balloon advertising to promote your brand, connect with us today.
In 2016, our #FlyEveryState project secured us a Guinness World Record for flying a hot air balloon in all 50 US states, which had never before been achieved.
The following year, our Cross Channel flight broke an existing Guinness World Record by taking 82 hot air balloons across the English Channel from Dover to Calais.
For our 15th Anniversary we challenged our 50,000 Facebook followers to design a character and the winning design would be built into a full size hot air balloon. The result of this was Puddles the Penguin and our continuing #FlyPenguin project, which now includes special shapes Splash and Tall Steve.
We are also proud to be the organisers of both The Longleat Sky Safari® and The Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta®.
Held at Longleat Safari Park, our Sky Safari® is now the largest annual balloon event in the UK with over 200 balloons attending the four day family event. The Lord Mayor’s Balloon Regatta® is an established annual landmark on the London social calendar and sees up to 50 hot air balloons fly over central London to raise awareness and funds for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal charities.
