Why Filva Ballooning

Bruco en Chouffe luchtballon samen in Beervelde - Filva Ballonvaarten Gent

Filva Ballooning is a full-time balloon company. This gives the flight preparation, such as the daily analysis of the weather conditions and the maintenance and preparation of the equipment, the necessary time. We feel it is important that this is not treated as an incidental matter after coming home from another profession. Your and our safety are too important!

Filva Ballooning is a company that works entirely according to the standards imposed by EASA, the European aviation authorities. This means that our hotair balloons meet the highest quality standards and that our pilots and crew are specially trained to consider safety as the top priority.

Our pilots are experienced and must have at least 450 flight hours to be allowed to fly with our balloons.
Driving with a balloon trailer requires a BE driving license in most cases. Many balloonists are not legally compliant with this.

Our hotair balloons are all from the Ultramagic Balloons brand. A top brand that stands for quality, innovation and energy efficiency. Every year they are subjected to a strict aviation inspection. We don’t forget our vehicles and trailers either!

We also work with a caterpillar vehicle and a winch on the trailer. This way we avoid unnecessary dragging when we clean up the balloon and the basket after the flight.

That the lucky passenger ends the balloon ride with a glass of bubbles is beyond question. However, we also provide a glass for your chasing  car. They also experienced an adventure following the hot air balloon by road.

If you have a specific wish or dream, ask Filip about the possibilities. He is happy to tell you what is possible and how to make it happen. We are here for you!
