About us Contact us

Flybird was founded by Gino Ciers in 1991.

In that year, Gino had already a license to fly with aircrafts.

We started up the company to make the romance (yes, we do 'marriage proposal flights' or flights for Valentine) and adventure of hot air balloon rides more accessible to the people in Belgium (in the start-up years, hot air ballooning was something that was not commercial).
We are convinced that a hot air balloon flight is the perfect way to learn to know the beauty of Belgium.

Since then we made already thousands of flights. The most of them were in Belgium, but we have experience all over the world.
