We store all our equipment and balloons at our own balloon port. The port is unique in Turkey and Europe and approved by the Turkish Civil Aviation Authorities. It includes open and closed storage areas for balloons, a maintenance unit and a 10 ton propane tank with quick refuelling system. An extra service we offer for foreign balloonists coming to Cappadocia is the use of our balloon port.
