Home Balloon Building
Balloon Building
This section contains details of the home built balloon ands airship projects that I have undertaken. Most of the balloons that I have built have been built specifically for breaking records, an area in which I have had moderate success.
I really enjoy the process of designing and building a balloon because you learn so much about how they are put together (literally), the structure and the design weak points of some commercial models.
 

About Aviation

The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
