The Aussies take on the world

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi

We are so proud to announce that our Chief Pilot Peter Wright will go to Japan accompanied by Simon Beare and Ben Philips to the Saga International Balloon Fiesta.

It is a yearly event that takes place near the Kase River. This event involves more than a hundred balloons from 15 countries that take part in the festival and it has been dubbed as one of the biggest balloon festivals in Asia. There are 3 main attractions that you have to see in this event!

Balloon Contest (fingers crossed for Pete) there are 38 different countries and more than 100 balloons will participate this competition to win the championship. The feast will attract nearly one million visitors.
