Being extremely spacious, this 105 or 120 flat top open basket design is ideal for alpine flying or those long jumps. A beautifully constructed basket with woven floor
Willow is light in weight, while cane offers exceptional strength. 100% cane construction is an optional extra.
Baskets are traditional wickerwork construction, using a mixture of Willow and Cane. Floors on the 105 flat top or 120Open baskets are woven with Kiln dried Ash or Synthetic (Optional) runners bolted to the floor. The structural load is taken by twin, 6mm stainless steel wires running a stainless steel top frame and lower wire guides to form a continuous sling from the burner frame through the basket floor.
Longevity and strength are very important to consider when looking for the perfect hot-air balloon basket.
We pride ourselves with the fact that many of our baskets are still airworthy today, after so many decades flying professionally or for pleasure.
The top of the basket is padded and trimmed with the highest quality leather or suede. The bottom edge is traditionally covered with rawhide which protects the basket from damage during landing and transportation. For those in very harsh environments, we offer a leather base at a supplementry price.
Recent additions to the options available have included towing systems, leather handles, extra step holes and embroidered trim.
