2017 Built Complete Kubíček Package (VH-DVY)

Posted 04.08.2019

On offer is a complete Kubíček package built in January 2017.

The package includes the envelope, basket and burners, all in AS NEW CONDITION. Tanks not included.

Meticulous care has been taken on each setup, launch and pack up with the use of canvas setup/drop sheets and plastic drop sheets for pack up to avoid ground contact where possible. All flights undertaken have been light and well under the all up carrying capacity.

The envelope is a 90,000 cu'ft (2,600m3) BB26E 12 gore mixture of Kubíček Polyester lite and standard Kubíček Polyester. The bottom 2/3 is Kubíček Polyester lite fabric to dramatically reduce the entire weight of the envelope coming in at just over 90kg. The top and parachute vent are constructed of standard Kubíček Polyester to increase fuel efficiency and life of the envelope. Deflation system is a standard parachute vent. Rotation vents, all lines and pulleys in as new condition and functioning perfectly.

The basket is a Kubíček K13 with black suede top, soft padding floor, and the very sought after Kubíček design basket door. Included are handling line, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, 4 sets of tank straps, burner poles, pole covers, fixed pockets and pouches for radios, on board flight manual and any other gear you may need to stow away all in perfect as new condition.

The burner is a Kubíček Ignis dual burner. These burners are fantastic and known to be quiet yet very powerful. Both hoses in A1 condition providing fuel to both burners and the liquid pilot lights. Burner can support vapour pilot lights if desired. The frame is height adjustable with the use of a hydraulic piston.

The balloon is located in Melbourne, Victoria. It will come with a fresh annual inspection so the purchaser will not have to worry about one till August 2020. Any and all inspections are welcome and will certainly not disappoint. An inflation of the balloon and test flight can also be arranged. The balloon flies incredibly well, it is very fuel efficient and will impress even the most astute purchaser.

Please feel free to contact me either via phone on 0421 707 427 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any other questions you may have or to arrange an inspection.

Asking price is $37,500
