Adventure Balloons NZ is a family run operation.
Adventure Balloons New Zealand is a local company, based just outside Christchurch, South Island of New Zealand, although now also expanding to Wanaka in Otago. We offer a unique flight experience to remember, whether you’re in New Zealand on holiday, or as a homegrown Kiwi why not enjoy our stunning country from the skies, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion.
Our Chief Pilot Graeme Church has over 35 years hot air balloon experience flying in New Zealand, the UK and other parts of Europe, including Alpine Flying as well as a flight across the English Channel! Graeme also holds a fixed wing Aeroplane licence. Graeme is also one of two Hot Air Balloon Flight examiners in New Zealand.
Adventure Balloons is operated by Graeme and his wife Michaela and has a number of highly trained crew.
We are now looking at operating a Hot Air Balloon Pilot School, although still in the pip line but watch this space!
