International Balloon Meeting, Őcsény, Hungary

Despite all the dangers of air sports, there has not been a hot air balloon accident resulting in death in Hungary. Although, hot air ballooning requires serious preparation and the strong ability of concentration, the teams rising in the air naturally experience this spectacular hobbi as game and entertainment. It may seem simple for outsiders: when heating, the balloon is rising, for sinking it is enought to turn off the heat. Of course this sport is more complicated, and it is not enough to just rely on the wind, control requires considerable professional knowledge and experience.
