Custom Fabricated Hot Air Balloons
Specializing in Lightweight Special Shape Hot Air Balloons
Creativity In The Air.
At Bard Balloons, we create spectacular, bespoke, lightweight hot air balloons in Ottawa, Canada, since 2009.
Bard Balloons is a Custom Fabrication Shop building Hot Air Balllons and Hot Air Balloon related products. Operating out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and servicing the entire ballooning community, we build balloons under Transport Canada’s “amateur-built” category (also known as “experimental”) to similar standards as Type Certified balloons and we pride ourselves in exquisite designs and top quality workmanship, using modern top-of-the-line equipment and using custom designed and sourced materials such as our special lightweight fabrics available to be made in any custom Pantone color. We specialize in making special shape balloons and we can create almost anything you can imagine. We offer hot air balloon design services, as well as new manufacturing of full-size and model balloons, as well maintenance, repair and rebuilding services.
