All our balloons are registered aircraft with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Our balloons undergo regular maintenance & safety audits. Our equipment is state of the art ensuring our passengers safety and comfort.
Beyond Ballooning employs Australian pilots with a wealth of local knowledge and a strong emphasis on safety. Our pilots hold various overseas qualifications in both balloons and fixed wing aircraft.
Our custom built trailers and vehicles ensure your safety throughout the morning with no need for heavy lifting or standing behind reversing vehicles giving you more time to talk about your flight and take in the Hunter Valley surroundings.
Beyond Ballooning ground crew attend regular safety training & are there to assist the pilots & passengers to ensure you have a safe morning but most of all loads of fun!
Locally owned and operated
Beyond Ballooning is a locally owned business in every sense of the word. We employ Hunter Valley locals and we strongly support local business and community.
Beyond Ballooning offers a 100% flight fee refund if your flight is cancelled due to weather. This ensures that you are not stuck with a ticket if your only visiting the Hunter Valley and the flight is cancelled.
Beyond Ballooning can cater for small or large groups to suit your needs. We ensure that every passenger gets the most out of the experience, while guarantying you an abundance of personal space to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable flight.
