WE ARE LINDSTRAND

IMG_0590

Lindstrand Technologies Ltd is based in Oswestry, Shropshire in the UK. The Lindstrand team have been building lighter-than-air craft on the same site for over 25 years and has its designs certified in 48 countries.

Over that time we have produced over 1000 hot air balloons, the largest certified hot air balloon, the largest ever manned super-pressure balloon, and the largest ever thermal airship.

It has always been our policy to design and manufacture ‘in house’. You will find almost every trade in our company, brought together in our first class workshops and world-class textile-testing laboratories located in Oswestry, United Kingdom.

We proven track record of project management, and have approvals from the British CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), for the manufacture of lighter-than-air craft with production approval according to EASA Part 21, and is also approved as a Design Organisation under Part 21. A Part 21 EASA.

As well as producing  lighter than air craft, we also produce a varied range of specialist fabric engineering products, from inflatable aircraft hangars to space landing modules.  For further information on these please check www.lindstrandtech.com

02. EASA & CAA Design and Manufacture Approval

Lindstrand Technologies is approved to the latest design and production organisational approvals under the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the design and manufacture of all lighter-than-air aircraft.

03. Our Mission & Philosophy

For Our Customers…
Our mission is to build the finest hot air balloons and airships in the world, and to have fun whilst doing so!

Our Reputation…

At Lindstrand we have an impressive track record of project management, record breaking flights, and building the impossible.

So whether you’re a balloonist or a record breaker, you can always depend on our positive and professional approach. We have an “open door” policy and are happy to welcome you to our Oswestry base. Simply call our Sales Team, email us or use our online balloon configurator.

04. Artwork, Graphic Design & Digital Printing

At Lindstrand Technologies the graphic design and artwork teams are recognised as being second to none. Experience in ballooning, combined with the use of cutting edge industry software and natural creative flair, ensures that the visual representation of your balloon will inspire and impress you.

The team are now also able to produce breathtaking, photo-realistic, digitally printed artwork. A high resolution print is produced which actually penetrates the envelope fabric rather than simply coating the surface. Sophisticated mapping software, developed in-house, is used to calculate the degree of distortion necessary for the accurate application of the image onto the fabric. It is then printed, panel by panel, before being sewn in the normal way.
