Final standings of Gordon Bennett 2015


Here are the final standings after a truly amazing Gordon Bennett 2015 balloon race. Swiss-2 squeezed every last drop out of their balloon last night and landed in 3rd place. Pilots have been tested fully since launching on friday evening. Decisions to land early are always disappointing, but a leaking balloon of USA-1 and thunderstorms in the night gave four teams no choice. We have watched balloon flying at its finest and the organisers, pilots, crews and helpers can all be proud of a job well done.

Congratulations for all participants!

Montgolfier day – 231 years ago the World changed!

Montgolfier day – 231 years ago the World changed!


Picture by Bennie Bos

Happy Montgolfier Day Everyone!
On the 21st November 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier & the Marquis d’Arlandes, made the first, manned, free ascent in a balloon, flying the Montgolfier Brothers built aerostat for about 5.5 miles (9 km) in approximately 25 minutes.
Benjamin Franklin wrote in his journal about witnessing the balloon take off: ‘We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration.’

Awesome video from FAI

The FAI has released a new video featuring all air sports activities under the umbrella of the Federation. The 3-minute film succinctly presents the FAI sports and includes footage of FAI international records from Charles Lindbergh to Felix Baumgartner.

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The video sequences have been selected from various sources to highlight the beauty and diversity of Aeromodelling, Aerobatics, Ballooning, Experimental Aircraft, General Aviation, Gliding, Hang Gliding and Paragliding, Microlights and Paramotors, Parachuting and Rotorcraft.

“With this new video we aim to pass the bug for air sports to as many people as possible; all our sports have the great advantage of being exciting not only to practice, but also to watch,” said Secretary General Susanne Schödel. “We also want to emphasise that the FAI is part of the epic history of aviation and air sports, having ratified over the years more than 17,000 records including those of Lindbergh, Gagarin, Armstrong, Piccard, Fossett and Baumgartner, to name but a few.”
