You are a balloonist for the pure pleasure of flying.
You have experienced the exhilaration of silent flight and you anxiously await your next opportunity to fly. You look forward to sharing this adventure with your family and friends. You expect performance and reliability from your equipment, along with the ability to express your individuality. You’ve chosen Lindstrand Balloons to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
Lindstrand offers you the most design possibilities.
You can use any of our 18 standard Hyperlife/Ripstop colors or any of the 19 standard DiamondWeave shades to create the balloon of your dreams.
Did you know Lindstrand can provide replacement envelopes for all US type certified brands?
If a replacement envelope is what you need– Lindstrand can help. If you have an Aerostar, Cameron or Thunder & Colt bottom end, a simple logbook entry is all you need. For all other owners with US type certified bottom end components, we do all the FAA paperwork for you.
X-Treme Performance for X-Ceptional Balloonists –
Designed for those who love to fly … and love to win!
In 2003, competitive balloonists presented the engineers at Lindstrand with a challenge– to design an envelope that can safely increase ascent and descent rates while maintaining a stable profile– and if fuel economy could be increased that would be a bonus. The basic envelope shape working in conjunction with the exclusive internal baffle system has succeeded in achieving all our target design goals.
The result is a 24 gore flat panel speedster which gives competition pilots a distinct edge and puts “extreme fun” into sport flying!
The X-Series is now available in five sizes, 56, 60, 65, 69, and 77 to meet the increasing demand from balloonists. As more and more sport pilots enjoy the responsiveness and versatility of this great design, it has become the most popular new model introduction in the last 10 years.
The photo in the morning mist was taken by Cindy Petrehn, as she watched her brother, John Petrehn, win the World Championships in 2006. Obviously, it takes a remarkable pilot to win events of this caliber. We’re proud of their achievements and that a Lindstrand balloon, partnered with their own determination and skill, is proving to be the winning combination for them.
