Since 2016, in the heart of Hérault, in Occitanie, Zephalto has been developing with the CNES a unique and highly technological know-how: Céleste, a balloon capable of taking passengers into the stratosphere for an unlimited flight time and an unforgettable experience in unprecedented comfort conditions and safety.
At the origin of this expertise, two major technological innovations in the balloon industry: the altitude regulator and the reusable envelope. Thanks to these technological advancements, Céleste is completely eco-friendly, runs on solar energy and can be reused indefinitely.
These innovations also ensure increased safety and quality comfort conditions that make flying accessible to every age and every physical conditions.
A SAFE AND RELIABLE BALLOON FOR THE STRATOSPHERE
The regulator makes it possible to control the ascent and descent of the balloon,
and thus offer a more comfortable experience, a more stable flight and a
redundancy of the safety systems.
The balloon was designed with absolute world leaders in aviation and space safety, and authorized by the DGAC (Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).
Since the beginnings of Zephalto and in order to guarantee a maximum level of
safety, all our balloons are designed to fly with pilots on board.
