About current flight model
This Simulator is now a 3rd generation mathematical model that calculates more than 40 flight variables 24 times per second. It also provides a dynamic zoom mode which enables even more precise landings and marker drops.
About in short
This Simulator is a 24-7 open global ballooning competition where you can compete
or just fly for fun. The balloon handling is very realistic so allow
yourself some time to adjust.
If you are looking for one of the hottest hot air balloon sites on the web you are at the right place!
Keep in shape and maintain your flying feeling and reflexes when the real thing is not available. Time, space and especially weather are no longer limitation for ballooning because The Hot Air Balloon Simulator is ALWAYS FLYABLE.
Through realistic balloon response and different wind speeds at various altitudes enjoy the magnetism of hot air ballooning:
- Realistic balloon motion
- Precision flying full of adrenaline
- Race against time and other players' scores
- Just keep in shape
The mission of this site is just that - to practice balloon flying all the time, not that few precious hours in the morning and before sunset. Of course nothing can replace the real thing, but this should keep your reactions in shape.
To add some spice to the simulator we have turned it into round the clock competition so pilots around the world can compare and improve their results.
The whole site is intended for hot air balloon pilots, but anyone else is more than welcomed to experience the physics of the first flying machine man have ever made.
This project is dedicated to Geoff Lescott, my friend and
