A fantastic way to enjoy all the fun of Ballooning and make a little money at the same time.  There are a number of commercial ballooning companies run by members of the Black Horse Ballooning Club and operating from the Black Horse field beside the pub. The two organisations below are actively looking for crew to help with their ballooning activities.

I am recruiting part time crew for a commercial balloon rides operation based in Hemel Hempstead flying in West Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.


This is a well paid role.


The balloon is a 300 with 12 passengers.


Need to be very reliable and enjoy early mornings.


The plan is to flyin the evenings during the week and  mornings and eveningsduring the weekend.


Need to be physically fit and good with people. Need to be over 25 for vehicle insurance reasons and have passed driving test before 1997 or have passed B+E trailer towing test.


Flying starts in May a carries on till October.


If interested messsage me or reply to this post, or call

Are you interested in joining Champagne Flights for some paid Crewing?


We are based and fly locally near Aylesbury and just south of MK, also some flights go from Sywell Airfield, N’hants, and the Bedford Microlight Centre, Sandy.


We operate April – October, 7 days, often with morning & evening flights scheduled. If you are self employed and time flexible so much the better!


These days we are considered a very small operation, mainly flying a 210 with 8 passengers, and having fun is still a priority!


We are looking for people over 25 due to vehicle insurance requirements (but you could still get involved as second crew if you are younger).


Energy & enthusiasm required. Experienced crew welcome, but we are happy to offer training and if you want to crew as a couple, that’s no problem.


There will be opportunities to fly in our 120 as on board crew during 2 passenger exclusive flights.


Call Stuart for a chat or we can meet in the pub.
