Adventure Balloons (NZ) Limited started operating in 1973 under the banner of Aoraki Balloon Safaris (ABS). The company in its present form was taken over in 2017 by Graeme Church a UK Commercial Balloon Pilot, Balloon Flying Instructor and Light Aeroplane Pilot with over 30 years experience and 2500 flying hours. Graeme also worked seasonally in the NZ summer months for ABS in between running our UK company Pendle & Cumbria Balloons in the UK summertime. It is our intention as well as offering passenger flights to set up and run a balloon flying school in the Methven, Canterbury Plains region for training and hiring equipment to past and future New Zealand balloon pilots.
