We offer tourist flights throughout Catalonia, especially in the regions of Osona, Costa Brava, Barcelona, Pyrenees and Garrotxa. We also collaborate with companies to diffusion their corporate image, offering the sponsorship of our balloons or specific services such as captive flight, incentive flights, etc.

All Aircat.cat hot air balloons are registered in the Official Civil Aviation Registry and comply with European safety standards EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), which are periodically reviewed by an authorized CAMO (Continuous Airworthiness Management Organization) maintenance center, in our case by Ultramàgic. The State Agency for Aviation Safety (AESA) accredits Aircat.cat as an aerial work company that has up-to-date insurance for all hot air balloons available to customers.

We currently have 7 balloons, with 2, 4, 6 and 10 seats, all with optimal hygiene and safety conditions. We are committed to a safe and close trip with the pilot, with harmony and well-being in the basket.

More than 3,000 flight hours accumulated
Currently there are few professional hot air balloon pilots in Spain who can boast of having more than 3000 flight hours. Puntí offers you in addition to his passion for flying in a balloon, his experience and training.
Instructor
Since 2015, Josep Puntí has a Flight Instructor license and has taught dozens of new hot air balloon pilots.
Night Flight
The best time to go ballooning is at first hour of the morning, when exist the best weather conditions. Also during dusk and night, but in this case, you must have specific training due to the attached difficulty of flying without sunlight. Puntí has been authorized to carry out night flights since 2014.
Maintenance Technician
Thanks to different specific training courses certified by both the Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aérea Española and the Fédération Française d’Aérostation, Puntí is a balloon maintenance technician. With the manufacturer ULTRAMAGIC SA, they together keep a strict control of their balloons to get the best security levels.
Competitions and Festivals
Whenever possible, aircat pilots participate in both national and international competitions. These events are an essential appointment for those who have a passion to fly in a balloon. Josep Puntí has also won an important podium such as the European Balloon Festival. He has also participated in many international festivals such as Mexico's or the one in Dover that flies over the English Channel.
Expeditions
Expeditions require a higher difficulty to pilot a hot air balloon, they are also challenging full of adventure that pilots face with great enthusiasm. During these years Aircat pilots have participated in crossings all over the world such as expedition over the Alps, Argentina, Morocco and even Burma.
Puntí organized an expedition in the Swiss Alps in 1991 and provided logistical support to the Bayer Airship in its trip around the world to celebrate the company's 150th anniversary. He was also the official co-pilot on all its flights during the time in Catalonia.

    Vic at my feet

    Cristina - August 2020
    Highly recommended experience, planning over the Osona region and feeling that time does not pass up there, feeling of freedom and peace. Thanks to Josep, who illustrated us on all the steps that were being carried out during the flight, and above all he made us feel safe and relaxed, being able to enjoy the flight, with a toast included.

    MAGNIFICENT BALLOON TRIP

    Mònica - March 2020
    Pep has been a great pilot ... 100% guaranteed safety, as well as a journey full of smiles and magical moments. Thank you for making us fulfill a dream and for getting closer to heaven ... All this accompanied by a YES I WANT and a glass of cava courtesy of d'AirCat have made this experience something brutal and unforgettable.
    Despite the bad weather forecast, Pep decided to wait until the last moment to assess whether it was really safe or not to fly ... And thanks to that, we succeeded ... The weather forecast failed and we had a fantastic flight. I think that it is necessary to emphasize the VERY humane treatment of Pep, who at all times facilitated us to "take flight" without neglecting, NEVER, our safety. We knew that due to the weather forecast we should perhaps cancel the flight but finally the weather respected us and gave us this beautiful moment.
    Without a doubt, if we decide to fly again, it will be with Aircat.
