Excellent place to do ballooning managed by our dealer Mauro Oggero in Peraria company and his new enthusiastic teammember Barry Birch, leader of ballooning activities. Good weather, exciting Truffle Grab, good food and wine, comfortable stay in a castle.
Just sometimes small landing places in the middle of wineries...

Balón Kubíček in the World
During summer Kubíček demonstrator balloons run over all the wolrd. One of them visited even western coast of Ireland, place never touched by hot-air balloon till now.
Many thanks for kind invitation to Mr. Muller-Tolk and all the commitee of Sneem Family Festival.
Harley-Davidson among baskets
For one important customer from Germany we made a very special basket. According to customer's request there's a smooth black leather on the top rim and the poles covers. Same material is used for very special sidewall cushion around all the basket, for the pockets and bags, and also all the leather on the bottom is coloured to black. Only zips in poles covers are red. In general the impression is great, the baskets looks very luxury and little bit rebel; similar feeling you could have on good chopper or an expensive car.
Digitally printed BB26 from Kubíček was the only one official hot-air balloon of this year's World Games in Germany.
The report about christening you can find on the official site of World Games.
New hot-air balloons and airships factory was opened by the owner Aleš Kubíček and councillor of Southern Moravia, Mrs. Marie Cacková. For such unique factory very original opening was needed. The tie was not cut, but burned by the balloon burner. After the ceremony, the factory was opened for visitors to see the balloon production. The envelope workshop with many envelopes and kilometers of fabric, basket production and metal workshop, where the burners are made. The part of ceremony was also the exhibition about the history of Kubíček company and the party. Almost 200 guests, including company dealers, CAA officers, partners and suppliers, and also the neighbours took part of the opening. Aleš Kubíček personally took off with the balloon from the factory in the evening to show the neighbours what does the balloon flying mean.
New factory on Jarni street will be opened officialy. The event called "Grand Opening" is planned for June 2, 2005 and takes part of Balloon Jam, the biggest balloon event in Czech Republic.
The hetman of Southern Moravia, Mr. Stanislav Juránek, accepted the invitation for official ceremony and he will snip the tie and start the visit in the factory. All the guests then see the production of hot-air balloons and airships in probable most modern balloon factory in the world. Some refreshment after the visit will be prepared, and the day will finish by the balloon flight of Balloon Jam participants.
Sunny weather on first day of April wishes also all the best to Aleš Kubíček, the founder and owner of Kubicek Balloons, during the celebration of his great life jubilee. He took the mufflers as a gift with humour, because it's clear, that because of all his activities they will be kept in a wardrobe. It was great party, there was enough eating and drinks, including a big cake in a shape of old factory on Francouzska street. We are wishing good luck to next 50 years!
