1. BN offers a range of balloons, parachutes, and odds & ends for sale so you can operate a weather balloon HAB flight yourself.

2. BN hires out a full range of trackers, parachutes, cameras and flight computers so you can operate a HAB yourself but don’t have the high start up cost.

3. BN will operate a weather balloon / high altitude balloon for you and collect the video and pictures you want. This is our commissioned flight service.

Contact Chris at 07783903096 / chrishillcox1@hotmail.com to get a quote for the work we offer.

BN can be commissioned to fly your high altitude balloon project in a safe, insured, and CAA compliant environment. BN can design payloads, organise CAA permission, arrange insurance, and execute the flight. Take a look at some of our past projects which include work screened on Channel 4, BBC, and Irish TV.
