Cloudhopping
Written by Mark Millard   

I remember talking to a policeman who told me that his idea of a perfect afternoon was floating gently over the Oxfordshire countryside, suspended below his solo balloon and listening to his iPod. He said he’d always dreamed of joining the flying squad.

Cloudhoppers or single person balloons are smaller, ‘degondalised’ versions of their bigger brothers. Instead of a basket the pilot sits in a harness which also carries the burner and the fuel. This arrangement not only gives the pilot a completely unobscured view but also offers new opportunities like moon walking –floating down to a field or open space and taking giant hops, strides or bounces across it, propelled by the breeze.
