J Bennett & Son are members of the Black Horse ballooning club, founded by our very own Peter Dowlen.  The origins of the Club date back to a fine, warm and still evening in August 1980. Peter Dowlen recounts his take-off from a site at Prestwood Farm and the events thereafter which resulted in the formation of the Black Horse Ballooning Club.  http://www.blackhorseballoons.co.uk/about-club.php

The Black Horse Ballooning Club has been based around the Black Horse Public House in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire for over 20 years. We have an active membership that includes professional and private pilots, retrieve crews and social members. Over the years the club has organised many flying and social events. In addition to flying in the local area many of the pilots have experience flying further afield such as America, Africa, Russia and many European countries. Some have even appeared on national television. If you would like more information about becoming a member or have any comments or questions please get in touch with us through the 'find us' page on this site.
