Cameron Balloons Ltd are very proud to be market leaders in Superlight ballooning worldwide.

And now introducing our very latest design of modern hot air balloon with sixteen vertically cut gores and sixteen flying wires. Available as Sport-50, Sport-60, Sport-70, Sport-80 and Sport-90, the Sport series of envelope is designed to compliment the Cameron Balloons range.

These exquisite envelopes are the perfect choice combining superlight, exceptional value and efficiency. This adaptable balloon is perfect for training, syndicate use or for leisure flying.

Designed with CAD and built to aerospace standards by our highly skilled craftsmen, a multitude of colours are available.

In our ‘lighter-than-air’ sport, weight is a key factor with fabric making up a larger percentage of the hot-air balloon envelope’s total weight.

A fundamental weight-saving can be made by using lighter weight ripstop nylon: the reduction can be as much as 30%, depending on type and size of balloon.

The Sport can be made from our durable RipStop (69gsm) or our high tenacity superlight RipStop (38gsm - that's nearly half the weight of standard computer paper!).

Cameron Balloons have a large and vibrant colour range of Superlight fabric which can be used advantageously in envelopes up to 120,000cu. ft (3,400cu. m). This lightweight ripstop nylon incorporates a PU coating and allows us to offer the ballooning world, UK built and fully approved superlight hot-air balloon envelopes of exceptional quality.

Special Dye Fabrics available upon request

ParaPlus Deflation (Option):

This is a two-line control system for more controlled venting in Racers and Sport envelopes.

The second line can be pulled into the basket and held to inflate without tabbing the parachute in.

It can also be held in place during fast ascents and turbulence, comforting when flying in the Alps.

The system offers a much lighter venting action.

Finally, the second line can be used to adjust the parachute position. The rigging and pressure in the envelope re-seal the parachute to a satisfactory level, however, due to the very light action, the additional line offers our pilots a fail-safe tidy.


Feel the fibre of our fabric

Cameron Balloons fabrics have anti-mould, anti-mildew and anti-UV degradation agents added to them to prolong the life and colour of our balloons. Fluorocarbon is also added to the outside face of the fabric to defend the fabric from moisture, dirt and debris.
