Our wheelchair balloon flights are unique – we are the ONLY UK CAA certified air operator offering disabled and wheelchair-equipped hot air balloon flights. Flights usually take place in the morning, around sunrise, when the weather is at its calmest.
Our wheelchair balloon flights have an accessible basket with a bespoke door specially designed to allow wheelchairs onboard. The wheelchair is then secured to the basket using a specially-designed restraint system. Both the basket and the restraint system are certified by the CAA and tested for safety.
The wheelchair passenger can be joined by a guest and you’ll have the balloon all to yourselves along with the pilot, of course. This means that you receive a completely private and personal service.
Alongside our wheelchair balloon flights, Exclusive Ballooning also offers private charter flights for between two and four people. During a private charter flight, your party will have a dedicated, private basket. This allows for an intimate and personal experience, free from the presence of other passengers.
We are a proven world class company who offer a first class local experience; to this day, we are the only company with permission to overfly central London. Our sister company, London Balloon Flights, offer exclusive and limited flight service, meaning you can experience the flight of a lifetime. It’s an unmissable opportunity – you’ll soar over Buckingham Palace, the Tate Modern, the Imperial War Museum, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral and other famous sights. See London from a new perspective and don’t forget your camera!
We also attend events across the country and further afield with our branded balloons. At one event, we were on site at the National Star College in Cheltenham. We were there to support FestABLE, the UK’s first National Festival of Specialist Learning, founded to look for solutions to challenges faced by young people with disabilities. Our Renishaw balloon was there, which has a bespoke adapted wheelchair accessible basket, allowing those with disabilities and mobility needs to fly. You can read more about this event here.
