It's totally doable:
Attaching 55 helium balloons to his trusty office chair, adrenaline junkie Jonathan Trappe managed to soar to nearly 15,000 feet.

After spending two years in training and upwards of £45,000 on the adventure, this was the technical project manager's first ever cluster balloon flight.

He reached a height of 14,783 feet after strapping the industrial-strength balloons to the steel-cased chair and setting off from an airport in North Carolina.

Each balloon weighed just one-and-a-half pounds, but was capable of lifting 14 pounds.
