Demanding, we want our equipment to always be nearly new, and particularly well kept ensuring the greatest security. For our flights, we only use two kinds of balloons:
- 3000 m3 balloon to carry 3 or 4 passengers, in addition to the pilot
- 5100 m3 balloon to carry up to 8 passengers, in addition to the pilot
We deliberately do not wish to use larger balloons, some of which may carry more than 20 passengers. We want to maintain a friendly and more exclusive approach to your flight experience to preserve the serenity that grants a balloon trip.

Temperatures will be similar as on the ground because we will not reach very high altitudes for they add nothing in terms of sensation or vision.
At the mercy of the winds and thanks to their maneuvering expertise and finesse acquired through competition, Stephane and François will fly you over the site of your choice.
Warning! Stéphane or François will be unstoppable with explanations and other anecdotes should you engage them on the subject!
Night flight Certified, Stéphane will give you an appointment for takeoff 1 hour before sunrise. The nocturnal ascent is as beautiful as it is impressive. At about 800m, you will witness the sun rising slowly while it is still dark under the nacelle … Following this extraordinary vision, you will begin a descent towards the darkness (to a 400m altitude) to see the sun rise a second time shortly thereafter… Experiencing sunrise twice within a few minutes will forever be engraved in your memory. After about 2 hours of flight, we will wait for the complete sunrise to land and have a delicious breakfast on the nacelle.
