Yorkshire Balloon Flights
Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flights Over Yorkshire
The company was established by the late Tom Donnelly, one of the "grandfathers" of the hot air balloon revival in the 1970’s. The business has been taken over by a young resident of York, Oliver Webb, who started working with Tom on his balloon operation as a crew person over 10 years ago. Oliver has considerable experience in the UK and abroad and has great enthusiasm for the sport of hot air ballooning, indeed after the flight you will have no difficulty getting him to tell you a few ballooning stories. Now Yorkshire Balloon Flights is a family run business driven by our passion to share the incredible experience of flight by balloon. Taking off from York Racecourse we offer Champagne Balloon Flights over the beautiful city of York and surrounding Yorkshire countryside from April - October each year.
“There's nothing more peaceful and serene than watching the world go by as you fly over the countryside in a Hot Air Balloon. The most rewarding part of piloting balloons is being able to share the experience and excitement with others. ”
