CZ: Břestek - Fly In A Balloon For Romance And Adventure
Romance and adventure - are the words that most people think of when gracefully over their heads and quietly majestic cuts through the air ship. Few of them but maybe think that would be in his trash can sit by themselves. "Balloon is designed for adventurers and for families with children or seniors. Recommend taking children with them until school age, but otherwise balloon flights are not limited by age," says David Soviš from Balony.eu company, that the BalonCentrum (www.baloncentrum.eu) in Břestek has opened this year.
"We operate ten balloons, including the largest balloon in the Czech and Slovak Republic, which has a capacity of up to 16 passengers," added Soviš. Number of passengers per flight can be from four to sixteen - depending on how the balloon fly. The flight itself usually takes about one hour, its direction is always dependent on weather conditions, the balloons fly because the wind direction. Changing weather, especially wind power, before each flight, an experienced pilot closely scans. Otherwise, you can fly during all year, not only in the summer. You can choose from several types of flights including night observation flight. After landing, everyone who flight first time get baptism by champagne and to commemorate each of them receive a certificate of completion of a balloon flight.
Balloon trip can be made from several locations throughout Moravia. If you take off right in the centre of the balloon in Břestek, in attractive location of Chřiby, near the castle Buchlov, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the picturesque surroundings. The same can be said about other locations of Slovacko - starts can usually also several places in the Uherské Hradiště area. The advantage is that it specifically for flying over Slovácko no special restrictions with regard to air traffic control, so you can look to larger heights than in the surroundings of Brno, Ostrava and Karlštejn. "Normal flight is at an altitude of about 150 to 1000 m as desired by the passengers. Maximum height is 2500 meters," says David Soviš.
Balony.eu has their starting points also near Zlín, on Kroměříž airport and on the distant places in Moravia and Bohemia. But you can fly almost anywhere in the request, unless you are willing to pay more for departure outside the normal start place.
In the area of the company Balony.eu in Břestek you can find a complete background since this year. "The new you will also find a guest house and restaurant BalonCentrum that provides comprehensive facilities for passengers and their escorts, as well as tourists or business," says David Soviš. "In the summer we prepare the second edition of the international Balony.eu festival Buchlov 2012, where should be showed about 20 balloons." The term of this action is 17th – 19th of August.
