Hot air balloon

In a hot air balloon the most visible part is the envelope, a fabric bag that comes in many different sizes and shapes , the greater the number of passengers the larger the envelope. Suspended below the envelope we have the basket, made of woven wicker and reinforced steel frames inside. Steel cords pass underneath the basket allowing to attach it to the burner and the envelope. The basket on the passenger hot air balloon, is usually divided in compartments. Above the basket there is the burner which allows us to heat the air inside so we can fly. In the pilot´s compartment are the propane cylinders that feed the burner.
