Quiet, light and long in the air! Netless gas balloons are the front runner at all gas balloon competitions. They are a proprietary development of Ballonbau Wörner and are unique worldwide in this class. Since they are not dependent on a burner as are hot-air balloons, they run absolutely noiseless. Furthermore, they can stay in the air significantly longer than their "heated" balloon relations. The greatest advantage, however, is their low weight. They are filled with hydrogen or helium, equipped with only a very light balloon envelope made of extremely gastight fabric and without heavy net. The netless gas balloon can hardly be beaten in performance during recreational trips and competitions.
The NETLESS GASBALLON is available in five sizes: 510, 640, 840 and 1000 m³ (13,420 to 35,315 cuft).
The whole balloon weighs, depending on its size between 100 and 200 kg.
Due to the electrostatic material, the NETLESS GASBALLOON can be filled with helium and with hydrogen.
The low leakage rate of our special new material is such that the balloon looses about 1l (0.04cuft) in 24 hours, per square meter of envelope surface.
It is possible to choose different colored fabric gores for each gore of the envelope or to print and paint the envelope according to your special wishes.
Yes, a traditional type with net, valve and rip panel is also available.
The number of passengers depends on the size of the basket. There are baskests for 2 persons up to 6 persons available.
The basic equipment contents: sandbags, trail rope 50 m (164 ft) long, trail rope bag, sandbag with shovel, canvas bags, leather upholstery of the basket rim, edge protection, bottom mat.
You can get light envelope ropes, a light basket with bench and a rain protection for the basket.
The NETLESS GASBALLOON is certified by the European aviation agency EASA and by the FAA. The balloon is delivered with a Certificate of Airworthiness for registration in the respective countries. In some countries outside the EU, no certification is required.
