Just like any aircraft, a hot air balloon has to have a registration number so that it can be identified.
We have been very lucky to secure a special registration for the Tibet Balloon. The balloon will be based and operated from the United Kingdom and has to have a G- prefix followed by four letters to make up the remainder of the registration. So just in case someone doesn’t recognise the Tibetan flag the Tibet Balloon will have the registration G-TBET. In the final design plan below you can see that the registration will be on the yellow border on both sides of the balloon.
Look out for G-TBET taking to the skies from July 2015.
