Well I watched one intresting documentary on Viasat History channel and I got some idea , well we all know that hot air balloon was one of the biggest inventions in second part of 18. century and that was really revolutionary invention in that time , something amazing , something which would allow people to soar into the air and to sail through the air.
Thed Montgolfier brothers have performed the first public demonstration of hot air ballon in June 1783. in Annonay when balloon reached of incredible 1000 meters of altitude and he spent 10 minutes in the air , in September the same year the Montgolfier brothers have performed the demonstration in Versaille in presence of king Louis XVI and for a purpose of demonstration they let into the air the sheep , rooster and a duck but few months later was performed a first flight with a human crew from 2 men , Jean Francois Pilatre de Rozier and Marquis D'Arland , also Pilatre de Rozier and Pierre Romaainne were died in balloon accident in 1785 when they tried to pass the La Manche in balloon and they are known as first vioctims of air accident in history.


Since we do not have a ships and naval in AC : Unity , so probably we will have some other kind of vechicle , so the balloon is emerging as logical choice.
Ezio had a Da Vinci's flying machine , Connor had a ship , so probably Arno will have a balloon ; )

I think that would be really awsome , controlling of balloon , maybe we can perform some spy mission in balloon , to check from the air what's going on on the ground or maybe we could reach some target by balloon........etc

Hot air balloons were already shown in Unity gameplay a long time ago.

I don't remember if it was via leak or not.

I just remember for sure seeing an air balloon.

The return of exotic missions: modified hot air balloons with Greek Fire attachments.
