Hot air balloons: landowner rights explained

Legal Guides

There are around 12,000 balloon flights per year between April and October, with the majority occurring in the southern half of England. Most flights end on farmland and pilots recognise that they rely on the goodwill of the farming community, for once a balloon has taken off it can only land somewhere downwind.
This Business Guide document provides NFU members with information about ballooning and the organisation that represents balloonists.
