Have you ever dreamed of flying at 18,000 feet? And what if your dream didn’t involve a plane?

Michael Scholes, a former hot air balloon pilot will fly at such heights when he undertakes a triple record breaking Atlantic flight in a gas Rozière balloon.

Together with his partner Deborah Day, the duo is preparing for their transatlantic flight which will see them flying from Canada to the UK.

Mike is chatting to RNIB Connect Radio’s Simon Pauley.
