The association between Champagne and Ballooning goes back to the pioneers of balloon flight in France in 1783 and then the decadent lifestyles of the Gas Balloonists of the late C19th. We maintain that tradition by celebrating our return to earth with a glass of Champagne (or juice) after landing.
The farmer or landowner may well join us, or we drive to local beauty spot, where we can watch the sunset or enjoy the peace and quiet of early morning! What better way to celebrate your birthday, Anniversary or special occasion?
Cheers Happy landings!
