A BALLOON TOWARDS SPACE
SUCCESSFUL TEST FLIGHT!
Our test flight on Friday, August 21th has been a success. A new step for space tourism has just been validated thanks to the work of our entire team !
A CRUISE TOWARDS SPACE
A unique technology
IN A BALLOON
Zephalto takes its passengers in a balloon into the stratosphere for a cruise with a view on the Earth. Onboard our designer vessel, gaze upon the world from a new perspective.
Watch the curvature of the Earth and dive into the darkness of space at 25 km (85k ft) altitude.
Space condition tests
Lower hourly flight costs, choice of flight profile (altitude, duration, path), safety of expensive equipment, onboard operator
Excellent image resolution taken at 25 km (85k ft), possibility of long and repeated observations, safety of expensive equipment
Protocols and measures carried out by an operator at selected altitudes, lower hourly flight costs
Safety of equipment, lower hourly costs of flight, choice of flight profile
Designed and manufactured in Occitanie
Established since 2012 in the village of Le Pouget, in the heart of the Hérault region of France, Zephalto is part of a long French aeronautical tradition and an ecosystem of local partners of excellence: world specialists in extreme conditions and exceptional creators, for a French-style flight that combines a tradition of refinement and cutting-edge know-how.
An environmentally friendly flight
The balloon moves by inserting itself into the different air currents. Pushed by the winds, it varies its altitude to choose the right direction with the help of a regulator that runs solely on solar energy.
Each element of the balloon is designed to be reusable. A major technological breakthrough, the envelope is not torn at the moment of landing, but emptied of its gas and reused for subsequent flights, thus reducing the cost of access to the stratosphere.
