Available in three sizes to match a huge range of burner frames and envelopes. These beautifully constructed baskets are of a classic construction with various top options, including Bureaucrat, Flat Top or Tucked. Made using traditional weaving method from the highest quality willow and cane. Willow is light in weight, while cane offers exceptional strength. 100% cane construction is an optional extra.

At a glance

Baskets are traditional wickerwork construction, using a mixture of Willow and Cane. Floors within the Aristocrat range are woven with Kiln dried Ash or Synthetic runners bolted to the floor. The structural load is taken by twin, 6mm stainless steel wires running parallel to the 32mm Aluminium 'U' Tubes forming 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.They lead a hard life and traditional materials have shown themselves to be extremely resiliant. The woven floors help absorb shock and reduce weight.

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 Hi-Spec sides, leather handles, extra step holes and embroidered trim. 

Cameron Balloons Ltd also offer a number of special purpose baskets. For further information please contact our Sales Department or your nearest Cameron Dealer.
