Flying Enterprises are very pleased to announce another new balloon for 2014, this is the Visit Malta balloon G-MLTA.
The balloon idea was conceived by Tom Gouder a young, local Maltese born pilot, who in conjunction with Karl Borg and Jesmond Bondin Event organisors from malta took the idea to the Government in Malta. Karl has dreamed of balloons in Malta since the 90’s and then when he met Tom, the realisation of his dreams came true. It then took nearly two years from the conception to the actual balloon being built. The idea is to market Malta in the UK to encourage more people to choose the incredible island as their holiday destination. www.visitmalta.com Tom will be flying the balloon in the UK for sport and leisure and Flying Enterprises will be looking after the commercial aspects for the balloon and some special projects in Malta and further afield.
The balloon was manufactured in Spain and Tom and Ian Martin along with Richard Penney of Ultramagic carried out its test flights near Barcelona. We expect the balloon to make its first UK appearance at The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta from the 7th – 10th August 2014 in the spectacular nightglow, which is chorographed and directed by our own Ian Martin. look out for this pretty balloon over the skies of Bristol.More News
