Our team

Experience and satisfaction are two key words for the European Balloon Corporation. All our pilots are professionals (and most of them even instructors).

They have flown over more than 27 different countries and have accomplished some of the most exceptional adventures like flying over the Great Wall of China, over deserts of New Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia and Qatar, as well as over the Karakoum desert (one of the most dangerous ones in the world). They have crossed the English Channel, taken off from the Red Square in Moscow, they have flown over the Swiss Alps, and have had many adventures in Japan, Malaysia,Thailand, Chili,Korea and many other countries. They will be very happy to tell you all about their great adventures from the heights of a hot air balloon
