The real journey of discovery is not to look for scenery, but to have a new perspective.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking landscape but in having new eyes.

(Marcel Proust, French writer)

When you go on a journey, the scenery, experiences, and encounters with people and nature that you have never seen can change a person's values. SOLA BASE was created with the aim of meeting such a place.

It was in New Zealand when I was a student that my values changed drastically. I intend to improve my English, but I was shocked by the people of a completely different culture and way of life that I met there. I realized that the common sense I had been thinking about was just within the framework, and I was just running on the rails in line with the surroundings.

Around the same time, I became a pilot because of my father, who was a hot-air balloon pilot. After that, I learned the depth of hot-air balloons and was drawn into a free world similar to the frameless world I experienced in New Zealand.

When you fly in the wind with a balloon, you can feel a free world without a frame.

At that time, there may be discoveries and encounters that may change your values.

We aim to guide you to such a meeting place by flying in the sky.

"Pilot everyone to the adventure."

In order to fly in the sky, we must not only cooperate with each other but also be in harmony with nature such as the weather.

Flying in the sky teaches people and nature to understand, respect and cooperate with each other.

I believe that by coming into contact with such "sky" culture and values, each person's consciousness will move toward a peaceful and sustainable world.

To that end, our mission is to Pilot you into an adventure full of new cultures, values, discoveries, and encounters.



Leadership, Followership and Airmanship

Everyone is independent and, as represented by pilots and crews, each has leadership and followership to do their best for each other. In addition, each person will fly with pride as an evangelist who can convey the charm and enjoyment of hot-air balloons as well as acting as an airman.


We will continue to evolve so that we can continue to grow for a long time, and we will continue to be a sustainable company by looking at things from a long-term perspective while building safe and three-way relationships with everyone.

Make Wow! !!

We will always pursue exciting and fun. We will grow with creativity for that purpose.
