What people are saying…

Customer promise

Each balloon envelope is built from individual “blocks” of fabric called panels, which are grouped into vertical “stripes” known as gores.

Our guarantee period for superlight fabric is four years (48 months) or 250 hours of flight time, whichever occurs first. Regular ripstop nylon is five years (60 months) or 300 hours of flight time, whichever occurs first. For Hyperlast fabric incorporated into the balloon envelope is six years (72 months) or 600 hours of flight time, whichever occurs first.

All balloons require regular maintenance and servicing which keeps balloon-systems working well and enables years of happy flying – maintenance usually takes place after 100 flying hours or 12 months whichever is sooner. Airworthiness Inspection & Maintenance Manual (UK).

Cameron Balloons fabrics have anti-mould, anti-mildew and anti-UV degradation agents added to them to prolong the life and colour of our balloons. Fluorocarbon is also added to the outside face of the fabric to defend the fabric from moisture, dirt and debris.

Excellence really is our lowest standard; exemplary quality, proven reliability and attentive service are some of Cameron Balloons key and constantly striven for company goals.

Our range of complete balloons, airships and lighter-than-air craft are all fully certified and approved.

Cameron Balloons also offers assurance – An ESCROW account is available – guaranteeing that your deposit payment is safe with us.
