I am thinking of finding a large balloon that could take me to a very high place from which I could fall. There is less risk involved than finding a structure to jump off of assuming that you can set up the balloon far away from populated areas. A seat would need to be attached to the balloon. I am thinking a climbing harness attached to the balloon to sit in would be best. I am not sure if balloons large enough are made for carrying humans. Would it be less painful to slowly rise to an altitude where oxygen is more scarce, or to fall from an altitude still oxygen rich enough to breathe comfortably? Would a small hot air balloon be required to carry a human or are there large enough helium balloons to carry a human? I am not sure if there are regulations on large balloons.
