Who wants to fly in a hot air balloon? Who doesn’t? It tops most bucket lists! Who sees a hot air balloon floating on high? Easy answer… a LOT of people.
Hot Air Balloons remain unrivalled in their ability to capture attention (watch the cars pulling over to snap photos and share), fill hearts (oh, so many) and trust the minds (of the smartest marketeers).
Whether looking at a standard balloon or a special shape, SCOTAIR along with Ultramagic can help this dream, vision or project become a living, breathing reality. Our hot air balloons are made in Spain at the Ultramagic factory, built to meet the most rigorous standards imposed by the Civil Aviation Authority and European Aviation Safety Agency.
SCOTAIR is not just about selling a balloon to a client, we want a balloon seen by large numbers, in the skies and across social media platforms and standard media. We can help implement and maintain a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter campaign for our clients, updating as we go with images, news and stories.
Our main thrust moving forward is Special Projects. In 2014 SCOTAIR’s Chief Pilot and owner, Graeme Houston, was seriously injured in a high speed, high impact, head-on road collision. Graeme says,“To have such a massive, life changing event has not and will not curb my ambition, desire and love for what I did and what defined me, it has made me more determined to succeed. I have unfinished business and there are many clouds which I am yet to touch”. This quote from Leonardo De Vinci sums this up, “For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return”. No other words are needed as far as Graeme is concerned and this sums up his motivation to continue flying and striving for his many goals.

HOT AIR BALLOON ADVERTISING SPONSORSHIP & PROJECTS
There is simply no other advertising medium that offers the ROI of a Hot Air Balloon. You are limited only by your imagination for design and shape. Flying overhead will always captivate your audience and images taken on smartphones are shared immediately on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. They also make the world smile, that’s always a positive.
There are many options with Hot Air Balloons, from the worlds leading manufacturers like Cameron Balloons, Lindstrand and Kubicek. Scotair choose to fly Ultramagic. All hot air balloons though, are easily transported in a trailer or in the case of the Tekno, a large hatchback will suffice. Being mobile means we can take the balloon to locations around the country or globe with ease and be seen where needed.
Branding is a phenomenon in our cluttered world, every penny spent needs to count. Public perception and moral values, to the “green”, “extreme” are all key goals to be achieved. Sponsorships of special projects can achieve a staggeringly high return on investment, we are ready to explore ideas. Contact Us

Imagine having a company who can take an idea, a vision, a goal and make it a reality. Imagine if all you had to do was pick the phone up or send an email to make things happen. Well you can, we’re here, we’re ready and we love a challenge, big or small.
Nothing makes the heart race more than flying somewhere never flown before, a new and exciting challenge. Because balloons have no steering, it’s experience, know how and planning every little detail that enable us to pull things off.
Picture the Forth Bridges on a glorious, sunny morning around rush our. Now picture a 100 ft tall Whisky Bottle or a giant Haggis floating over head. Then again, this about your product, your logo on a balloon. We can make many things happen and we CAN stop traffic. To find out more, simply contact us, we are hear to listen, advise and undertake whatever you want to do.
Over the years, TV companies have used our services time and again. Scotair have appeared on BBC, ITV, Channel 4, GMTV along with international work.
In 2008, we created a TV format which led to meetings with leading TV production teams, from London, Bristol and Glasgow. There was also interest from an agent in Holywood, daft as it sounds.. From the initial format we were asked to create one for two leading TV Chef/Cooks, it was received well but they decided they no longer wanted to be cooks..Go figure!! Both these formats are available and we are more than happy to explore the opportunities..
