About Virgin Balloon Flights - Rutland Water
Appreciate the beauty of the East Midlands on your flight as you take in the views over nearby Loughborough and Peterborough. Flyers can expect to have good views over Charnwood Forest and the splendid Great Hall of Oakham Castle. A perfect setting for a balloon ride.

My husband and I went on a flight from Rutland Water this weekend with pilot Rebecca Cains and had the most fantastic time. It was the first time for us both and I don’t think either of us expected it to be quite so spectacular. We loved getting stuck in, helping to prepare the balloon for take off and pack it away afterwards. The flight was the perfect length and beautifully serene and we all had a real laugh with our Pilot and her crewman Dave. The champagne at the end was the cherry on the cake! Huge thanks to everyone that pulled the experience together, we will be booking again without a shadow of a doubt! P.S we secured and flew on first attempt, without any cancellations!

We had an amazing flight the pilot was brilliant, we went for my dad 60th birthday and really enjoyed it. Loved how we get involved with helping to get the balloon out and up, then helped to put away. Would highly recommend the Rutland flight stunning views .

This was our third attempt at a flight. The previous two had been cancelled for safety reasons. Although frustrating, better safe than sorry. This time however, conditions were perfect as was the flight. Rebecca, our pilot, is a legend. My girls compared her to Lara Croft, and with her team, Dave in jeep and trailer, and Mark, our coach driver, the whole trip was super-friendly and fun. We felt fully involved, safe, and able to enjoy a most brilliant experience, which I sincerely hope isn’t once in a lifetime. Thank you.

Had the most amazing experience today. It’s hard to get on to the flight but if you persevere, you absolutely will not be disappointed. It was a beautiful view and a good talking point in the future! I would definitely go again and couldn’t ask for a better person to take us. Rebecca made the whole thing so enjoyable and to top it off, we were all impressed that she was off sky diving afterwards! What a legend!
