Major update and new version of FAI Balloon Live app

The Balloon Live team is very excited to announce the release of a major update and new version of the FAI Balloon Live app.

The new version has been completely redesigned and rewritten to provide an even better pilot experience and optimal in-flight functionality:

  • A brand new UI design with better look and feel.
  • Faster response to marker drop and goal declaration.
  • New app core helping to be faster and more stable in competitive environment.
  • Quick and easy in-app purchase feature to pay pilot fees for using the Balloon live system during a competition.

The website has also been updated to provide the best possible support. Guides and tutorials are available for drivers and officials. The installation of the new version is different depending on the mobile device you are using:

For iOS: Simply update the app through the App Store. If you haven’t installed the app yet, you can download it directly from the Apple App Store.

For Android: Due to some technical changes, the app had to be created as a separate new app in the Google Play Store.

To prevent anyone who has already purchased the old version from paying again for the new one, we have lowered the price to approximately €0.1 until the end of June 2022. You can then uninstall the old version, as it will be obsolete in 2022 .

If you have any questions, please see all the useful information about the application on the Balloon Live website or contact us by email at

Looking forward to seeing many of you flying with Balloon Live in the upcoming competitions, we wish you an excellent weekend.
