Ultramagic Balloons The Solo
The excitement and fun of flying free under a balloon completely on your own securely fastened in a comfortable seat has been achieved. Designed with special attention to safety, security and comfort, The Solo gives you everything that you have come to expect from an Ultramagic balloon but with all the benefits of a simple to operate light weight one person system.
The Solo pilot support system is constructed from an aircraft quality stainless steel frame. Designed for secure attachment of cylinder whilst maintaining easy removal for transportation or refuelling and allows the installation of either 20kg or 30kg cylinders.
Fitted with a comfortable adjustable padded seat, footrest and headrest, and an easy to use three-point safety harness with quick release buckle. The burner frame can be easily removed for transportation and storage. The burner frame offers gimbal of the burner to assist with that windy inflation. Once the balloon is upright and ready to go one can apply the simple safety lock to secure the burner in the upright position during flight and landing.
The Solo burner and fuel system has a double burner system with a lightweight one-person single cylinder balloon. Two separate fuel take offs from the cylinder with their own additional quick shut off valve at the burner are fitted.
The Solo fuel system also has a fuel reserve in a single cylinder. This still allows flight whilst keeping an eye on your fuel gauge in the specially designed mirror. However by flying on the right hand valves you know when fuel runs out on this side you still have 15% left in the cylinder using the left hand system to make a safe landing. There is the option of having a hydraulic actuated valve fitted so that you can operate the burner without lifting your hand above your head.
