EXPERIENCE AND SAFETY
We hold an Air Operator's certificate (AOC)
We have been offering passenger flights since the 1990s. Your safety is our number one priority! The AOC certificate is currently the only document authorising hot air balloon companies to offer commercial flights with passengers.
Thanks to the experience of our pilots, we are able to provide you with unforgettable memories during a flight.
We are available for any proposals of seeing a given area from air and we will be happy to provide advice.
Our region is full of magnificent places to see from the air ensuring breath-taking views. The experience with watching a sunset in a hot air balloon will stay with you forever while photos will enable you to get off the ground for a while.
LEARN ABOUT OUR HISTORY AND PASSION FOR HOT AIR BALLOONS
It is October 1975...
On a rainy autumn evening, two students of pedagogy, Andrzej Ćwikła and Marian Pusz, supported with the beneficial effect of the Gummiberry Juice come with an ingenious idea:
“Let’s build a balloon!”
This way the Balloon Club was created, and the process of producing the first balloon was launched.
“We only started flying when we built a gas balloon in 1978”
Throughout the years, the business and passion of Andrzej was closely associated with balloons. Naturally, his sons Tomasz and Błażej followed in their father’s footsteps.
Tomek i Błażej Ćwikła - FlySquad pilots
Andrzej’s sons have been active in the field of hot air ballooning from the beginning of their lives. They started with ground service but for the last 12 years they have been flying as professional pilots.
Both of them have completed hundreds of flying hours and have a huge experience.
In 2014, they established FlySquad, a company that will continue the family tradition and will be in charge of organising balloon trips and viewing flights all throughout Poland. Andrzej Ćwikła and sons, Tomasz and Błażej are pilots and co-owners of this company.
Key events in the history of the Ćwikła father and sons:
1978 - First Poles with a balloon are on Cuba
Hot Air Balloon Competitions:
1983 - Paris, Gordon Bennett
1988 - Australia
1990 - Israel
1991 - Japan
2002 - Height record of Poland in the AX-9 class
2006 - Dubai
2010 - Iran
At the age of 3, Tomasz tied bags with sand to his father’s gas balloon.
