About Gary Davies

I started ballooning when I was a child. My dad was in a syndicate of 3 and got his PPL (Private Pilot Licence) in 1980, so I’ve always been around hot air balloons.

I got my own hot air balloon in 2005, Cameron Z120 “zenith“, which has taken me on so, so many fantastic journeys!

I’ve flown 15k over the Swiss alps, crossed the English Channel twice, flown for 7 plus hours nonstop and flown from Cumbria to Boston in Lincolnshire – 163 miles – plus many many more!
