Passenger flights
We have been flying passengers since 1988, we were actually the first company to get the AOC (air operators certificate) for balloon flights in Finland. We will close down after the season 2021

Our chief pilot is Peter Lindholm. He was one of the first licensed balloon-pilots in our country. He was the first to get the rating for commercial balloon-flights in Finland. Competition achievements include two gold medals and several of other colours in Finnish nationals and a 7th place in the Europeans 1990. The finnish long-distance record, 428 kms, is from 2008.

Additional to Peter Lindholm, our balloons are also flown by Jari Salmela, Samuel Holm and Tuomas Holm. They are all very skilled and experienced pilots. Our ground crew is also very skilful and experienced. They take care of a professional and smooth ground operation.
