Helikite Hotspots Aerostat

A helikite aerostat is the combination of a helium balloon with a carbon fibre framed kite. The patented design of our Helikites overcomes the shortfalls of normal tethered balloons since the high winds that send other aerostats crashing to the ground will push helikites higher into the sky.
