(MENAFN Press) Dubai,United Arab Emirates - Tuesday, October 9th 2012
Balloon Adventures Emirates would like you to meet A6-BOB, this season's newest addition to their fleet of balloons. BOB is not just another hot air balloon “ He is the largest balloon in the Middle East. When fully inflated this balloon stands almost 40m tall, the same height as a twelve storey building.
BOB was built in 2012 using the latest balloon technology. He was manufactured by the world's largest balloon manufacturer ULTRAMAGIC, making this N-500 model state of the art. The balloon can be licensed to hold up to a maximum of 30 passengers, however Balloon Adventures Emirates will fly with only 24 passengers per flight, to make things more spacious for their valued guests.
The balloon adventure starts just before dawn to enjoy the luminous sunrise over the desert dunes. After taking off, the journey lasts approximately 1 hour, embarking on a magic carpet ride through a breath-taking sea of red sand dunes and trying to spot the local camels and free running gazelles that still occupy the flying area.
Balloon Adventures Emirates has been operating in the UAE since 2005 and boasts the most experienced commercial pilots in the world. The company is licensed by the General Civil Aviation Authority (Air Operator's Certificate AT024). All balloons undergo a strict maintenance programme involving regular tests at their own facilities, and are the only approved maintenance organisation in the Middle East (CAR 145 Approved Maintenance Organisation AMO/358/12).
Flights can be booked via their website “ www.balloonadventures.ae
Weather permitting, Balloon Adventures Emirates will be hosting a Private Media Charter flight on Wednesday, 17th October 2012.
