Life Ballooning celebrates their Platinum Anniversary in 2017, marking 20 memorable years of commercial balloon flights in South Africa.
“Ballooning is not just our livelihood, it is our Life – we are very fortunate to be in the business of making people’s dreams come true, and feel privileged to share our obvious passion for hot air ballooning with over 3500 guests every year.”
As a toddler, Conrad’s father took up hot air ballooning, and after travelling to many beautiful destinations around South Africa chasing sunrises, Conrad’s love for ballooning grew to the inevitable point that this too became his passion from a young boy.
At the age of 24, Conrad had reached the required number of hours to fly hot air balloons commercially and has travelled extensively, building vast balloon flying experience in varied terrains and weather conditions. He has to date piloted over 1800 flights, and flown in over 13 different countries around the world. He is the holder of both a South African and British Commercial Balloon Pilot License.
Conrad returned to South Africa with his family in 2007, after many years of flying for Virgin Balloon Flights in the UK, at which point he made Life Ballooning his new home.
Life Ballooning is a fully licensed air transport service provider, and SACAA approved hot air balloon operator, which manages a fleet of 4 hot air balloons, ranging size from 90 000ft³ up to 330 000ft³.
