Buying a balloon flight seems pretty easy – there are plenty of websites out there selling flights and on the face of it, they all seem to be offering the same product.
So why not just book with anyone. Well, like everything you buy the quality of the product can vary greatly. So here are a few reasons why we believe Cloud 9 simply does it better than anyone else and would be your best choice for your Hot Air Ballooning Adventure:-
Award Winning Team – Best Adventure Tour 2010
Gold Winner Adventure Tourism, 2010 Greater Sydney Tourism Awards
Finalist – 2010 NSW Tourism Awards
There can be no greater accolade than receiving the top award from the regions’ peak tourism authority. Not only has Cloud 9 been recognised at the BEST balloon flight company but we’re also the Best Adventure Tour.
The Right Stuff!
It’s the right type of ‘Experience’ that counts when ballooning.
We’re not talking about how may years we’ve been around. Although we should point out that Cloud 9 has operated for over 18 years with the original Owner, Management Team and Chief Pilot and we can even boast about having a total of 25 years of professional ballooning experience.
But what is it that sets us apart from others. It’s simple, what Cloud 9 does best is, EVERYTHING.
From the moment of first contact until we wave you goodbye at the end of your flight you will not receive better ‘everything’ than what we can give you, guaranteed!
Cloud 9 sets the industry benchmark which all other aspire to follow.
Safety – You couldn’t be in safer hands
Your Pilot, John Allen is the only Pilot in Sydney or the Hunter Valley with a 100% safety record. 25 years experience, not one injured passenger.
John has over 3000 hours as pilot in command of balloons. Three times more hours than any other pilot.
A World of experience. The only foreign pilot chosen to fly with the famous, ‘Flying Pictures’ balloon company. Considered the F1 Team of ballooning.
Beautiful Flying Areas
We believe that a beautiful balloon must only be flown over beautiful landscapes.
Hawkesbury Valley (Sydney)
Simply the most beautiful location in the entire Sydney Basin to fly a balloon. Some say it’s Sydney’s best kept secret. We know it is. Surrounded by National Parks, historic townships and pristine farmland you’ll just love it. And it’s so close!
The Hunter Valley
Everybody’s favourite location to relax and enjoy a spot of wine tasting. It’s also a very popular place to go ballooning. What more do I need to say, ballooning & wine go perfect together.
