The PRBA is the BBAC Affiliated Organisation in the north east of England.

Hello and welcome to our website - a window into our world of hot air ballooning.

You can follow us on Facebook and track us on Twitter too.

Please meander through the menu down the left of the page to see our 'who, what, when and where', and some general ballooning info.

Reminders, reports, and other information important to us, can be found by clicking the news headlines down the right of the page.
Our region is located east of the Pennines, from Northumberland through County Durham, Yorkshire into North Lincolnshire. There are a number of National Parks in the region, plus several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. How lucky are we? We get to fly over them!

PRBA welcomes anyone with an interest in hot air ballooning - whether you're a pilot, crew, wannabe-pilot/crew, or just wish to have a closer look at our large and colourful aircraft.

Why not come and see us at one of our meets? All we ask is that you contact us first, so we can arrange to welcome you in person and advise you if there's been a change of plan. Ballooning is weather-dependent and we'd rather you didn't have the disappointment of a wasted journey.

If you are too far away from us, you can find other regional groups by visiting the British Balloon and Airship Club website at www.bbac.org
New members are very welcome! - Please JOIN HERE!
