The Monaco Ballooning Team has been active for a number of years and has taken part in many international competitions.
It has won a lots of trophies.
Today, the club members have decided to refocus activities: from now on, ecology and sharing will be their watchwords.
This is the word, along with the values it represents, which has given us the desire to share our passion with those for whom life has not been straightforward...
This means, in practice, we want to offer handicapped people the chance to discover, exactly like their able-bodied counterparts, the magic of a hot-air balloon flight.
We already have all the equipment for flying, except, that is, for the basket modified for carrying the handicapped person and their helper. This basket will be hand-built and tailor-made.
It will be equipped with a door to allow easy and safe access, will have an electric seat and numerous other special modifications.
The electric seat will allow the handicapped person to be raised up to the same level as the able-bodied passengers.
That way, s/he can look out at the scenery and experience all the magic of the flight.
