Balloon flight Southampton

You would think it easy to launch in Southampton given the balloon festival that was run from there for many years. But the now international Southampton Airport means there is inaccessible controlled airspace above the town.

Not that you are short on choice for accessible hot air balloon launch sites. Our South Downs West launch area is to the north and east of the town. Dependant on wind direction we choose between Chichester, West Meon, Petersfield, Fernhurst or Farnham which site is appropriate on the day. For morning flights we use West Meon or Farnham

Launching from these sites will afford you with a view of the South Downs with the coast and Isle of Wight beyond.
