Bristol University Hot Air Ballooning Society (BUHABS)


BUHABS gives its members the opportunity not only to fly in the club’s own famous red balloon at the weekends, but also to chase it around the countryside on the retrieve.

We fly whenever the weather allows, including Wednesday afternoons and weekends, from launch sites around the Bristol area. We attend many special ballooning events throughout the year, including the Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August, as well as smaller balloon meets such as the Tiverton balloon festival.

We also go on ballooning holidays - recent destinations include the Lake District, France, Belgium, Germany and Italy.

You must be a paid-up BUHABS member to attend (membership currently stands at £35 for the year, plus £20 per flight). This is by far the cheapest way you will ever get to go ballooning, so start today!

**IMPORTANT NOTE: All BUHABS events and signups are managed via **
