Rough Terrain

Hot-air balloons can be operated in many different locations - on safari, in a desert, on the rocks, in countries such as Kenya, Turkey, or Egypt. What’s characteristic for these places is the frequency of flights (around 300 flights/year), distinctive UV light, inappropriate take-off and landing sites, strong winds, and finally, performances very narrowly within the flight manual’s limits. To keep the balloon within its operational limits, extra equipment is necessary.

To maintain operational liability and increase balloon’s lifetime, a hot-air balloon has to be equipped by several specialiazed accessories.
