Hot air balloons were the very first flight technology discovered that allowed us the chance to take to the air. Created with a basket that hangs below a balloon shaped envelope filled with heated air, the very first hot air balloon flight took place two and a half centuries ago in November 1783. Today these balloons continue to be popular both commercially and non-commercially, due to their appeal as an advertising tool and the opportunities to sightsee the countryside from an aerial view.
