So why do we need so many balloon launch sites in Hertfordshire?
Adventure Balloons provide hot air balloon rides over Hertforshire from Tring and other locations

The answer to this question is fairly simple - hot air balloons cannot be steered! We go exactly where the wind takes us, and have no control over our speed or direction of travel. Hertfordshire is surrounded by airspace full of passenger jets taking off and landing at Heathrow, Luton and Stanstead. So, imagine taking off from Hemel Hempstead with the wind blowing towards Luton Airport. We would soon be causing some pretty serious problems. With the wind in that direction we would use one of our other launch sites so that we could fly in safety.

We cannot say which launch site we will be using on any particular day, until we know which way the wind is likely to be blowing! We expect our passengers to be prepared to fly from whichever venue is being used that day. With the exception of flights meeting at around rush hour, the four sites are all within 30 - 40 minutes driving of each other.
