France Montgolfières and Water-Balloon at Voiles de Saint-Tropez

11 years of reflexion, 11 years of researches, of analyses, all types of tests to pass the idea to a fact. 11 years of battles also: battle against time, battle to find funds necessary for the advance of these researches which, thanks to the tenacity of the single man, lead to the realisation of a first archetype of aquatic ball - Water-Balloon - the main elements of which are currently in the final stage of certification to the Authority of civil aviation.

If it resembles to a traditional hot-air balloon from a distance, the aquatic ball France Montgolfièress is based on an avant-garde conception where all the elements Air, Earth, Fire, Water prove to be controlled with perfection. So, the aquatic ball France Montgolfières is made up of an especially conceived envelope (envelope with hot air allowing inflation and deflation on the water); of a special gondola (composed of a double seat and fixed on a deck equipped with floats); of burners specific and adapted, the whole allowing the group to take off, to fly and to land in complete safety.

True technical innovation, the aquatic ball France Montgolfières revolutionises the field of possibles in the world of the hot-air balloon and, short-term, in that of tourist flight in ball today (the first tourist flights being envisaged for 2014). From now on, lakes, fiords, littoral zones, etc. (until then avoided for reasons of security) those become accessible to balls and to all who want to discover the world in another way: the world seen from the sky! Imagine, tomorrow, you will be able to board for a cruise allowing you to pass from island to island on board of a hot-air balloon; to fly over bays, over marsh and over other mangrove swamps to the liking of the wind, etc. 

Beyond the tourist aspect, the aquatic ball France Montgolfières is going also to revolutionise promotional and/or advertising communication since giving new until then unthinkable opportunities. A visibility of the most spectacular since allowing the individual balls from now on (in the colours of firms, of institutions, etc.), to be present at the edge or on the water: regattas, festivals, sporting events and aquatic, beach events, etc.

Occitane of Provence, which contributed to this success by financing the last research stage of archetype and to allow it to be made known to the general public, was the first to hear a first aquatic hot-air balloon in the colours of 2013.

Also, France Montgolfières arranges to meet you next from September 28th till October 06th to discover this amazing Water-Balloon on the occasion of the Veils of Saint-Tropez!
