The Neo Hopper Base Unit is beautifully crafted solo flying equipment – perfect for those who enjoy lightweight ballooning or who want to fly solo and enjoy basketless ballooning.

At a glance

Cloudhoppers are great fun. The pilot is safely strapped into a comfortable harness. The fuel cylinder and burner are perfectly designed to attach directly to the balloon envelope. Hoppers provide the ultimate flexibility and pleasure at a fraction of the running costs of a conventional hot air balloon.

The harness technology has been likened to that in paragliding and provides security coupled with comfort for standard flights of about 2hrs in duration.

Easy to inflate and pack away, these beautifully-crafted units are extremely simple to operate and perfect for new pilots or those who want a unique visual impact for marketing campaigns and promotions.

Base Units are now fitted with a set of stainless steel hinges, making transportation and storage even more convenient. This simple system allows for the back frame to fold and pack neatly, even with the harness attached.

Our very latest Hopper base Unit benefits from larger rear-view mirrors, an independent emergency fuel cut-off, padded head-rest, seat positioning tabs for ease of inflation, increased comfort in the seat. Under the seat, there is even a handy pocket, ideal for storage.
