Home Balloon Building LNE Lite'N'Easy
LNE Lite'N'Easy
Balloon VH-LNE
This project was commenced in 1995 prior to there being an experimental category in Australia and was shelved for 8 years after my attempts to persuade the bureaucracy that they should let me build and fly it failed.

Now that we have an experimental category in Australia I have finished the envelope and it is awaiting a bottom end.

It is a 16 gore balloon with each gore being made up of 2 halves (left & right) which run from the top to bottom.

Originally I intended to use a Brian Boland designed collapsible basket which I built back in '95 but I think that it will eventually have a 2 seat airchair underneath it.


 

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.
