Balloon flight in Ghent with C-Air ballonvaren

Preparation for balloon flight

Looking for a balloonist in Ghent? Do you want to overcome your fear of heights, are you ready for a first balloon flight or do you want to re-live a previous balloon adventure? Then C-air Ballonvaart in Ghent is the place to come.

We will be happy to take the time to prepare everything with you and answer your questions. We will explain what a hot air balloon is, and how it works. You help us to get the balloon ready for the flight above Ghent. In the process, you’ll get to know our pilot much better.


Once everything is ready and all the questions are answered, it’s time to take off. We set off with you from the municipality or town of your choice for an hour’s ballooning fun in Ghent. Enjoy Ghent from a whole different perspective. Fly with us over:

  • the Meetjesland,
  • the Leiestreek,
  • Scheldeland,
  • the Flemish Ardennes.
  • or the Waasland.

Meander with us along:

  • the Leie,
  • the Durme,
  • the Schelde,
  • the Demer,
  • or the Moervaart

and wave at the Manneken Pis in Geraardsbergen. Discover the charm of the Leiestreek which attracted the painters of the Latem school, as well as Roger Raveel. Maybe you’ll spot birds over the Sentse Kreken, or fly along the oldest canal in Flanders, De Lieve. Hold your breath as you fly above Fort Breendonk and the Duvel Moortgat Brewery. See the Kluisbos from the air, and flirt with the language border. High above the escarpments climbed in the Tour of Flanders, enjoy the glorious landscape of the Zwalm valley and the Flemish Ardennes. You’ll never have ridden over the Wall of Geraardsbergen so easily! See iconic sights such as the big market square of Sint-Niklaas and Ghent’s three towers from the air.

Ballooning certificate

We always land in a safe place and then head for the champagne. We also give you a ballooning certificate to conclude your fantastic flight over Ghent.

He first flew in a hot air balloon at the age of sixteen. He soon became a commercial balloon pilot, and has now clocked up around 2.000 flying hours.

When he isn’t piloting commercial balloon flights, David can be found taking part in balloon races all over Europe. He also takes part in an annual balloon flight in the Alps.

Our pilot has already become Belgian ballooning champion 4 times (2018, 2021, 2022 and 2023) and is currently among the 10 best balloonists in the world.

David also flies as an airline pilot for Brussels Airlines, so aviation holds no secrets for him.
