Round the world balloon launch is postponed until next week

Based on weather forecast and recommendation from weather adviser the team have decided to abandon the Saturday morning launch. 

The conditions remain difficult due to the active cold front. The balloon would travel with it over its entire length till Tasmania, with an important precipitation and icing risk, possibly making the balloon heavier and obliging it to go to lower levels.

Apologize for all the inconvenience to people of Northam, Northam airport management and to all volunteers who booked this day to help us with envelope set up. We will keep you updated regularly on this web site.
