- ABOUT THE BALLOONS They stand 10 storeys tall and are made by Cameron Balloons of Bristol, England. The balloons last about 400 flying hours in the fierce African sun, which means they must be replaced every 2 years. They are twice the size of Double Eagle II, the balloon the Americans used to successfully cross the Atlantic in August 1978. BALLOON SPECIFICATIONS The larger of our balloons, the Cameron A315, stands as high as a ten storey building, measures 100 feet across at it's equator and has a volume of 315,000 cubic feet ( 9000 cubic metres). The A315 is among the largest operational balloons in the world. At sea level it has a lift capability of over two tons ( 2000kgs), although in Africa they carry only a maximum of 12 passengers and the pilot.
