First flight of the season.

Let's get the season started!  

Hope my regular crew can come out.  For first timers, I will do training.

Tailgate party at a local park after the flight.

We are usually done with the flying part by 9 am.  Tailgate until however long you want to stay.

Also, I'm finding I need to charge a little for these events to share in the cost of running a balloon (propane is as grossly expensive as gasoline).

    We had a great flight. John was in the basket with me (he and Gayle attended the Safety Seminar in March). Another Aeronaut added! Then nice socializing at beautiful Beamer Park. All in all a good day for flying! Thanks crew!

    So question. Are we all considered "the crew"? Who is going up in the hot air balloon?

    Will see you in the morning. We'll be having a mini rally, two other balloons (that I know of) will be there; RE/MAX and Omega.

    Hi Julia. So happy you can make it tomorrow! I'm the pilot and this is what to expect. In short. We meet. I brief the crew and give instructions. We unload all balloon parts off the trailer and assemble it. Use a large fan to "cold inflate". Then I use the burner to "bring her up". Take off time. Then crew loads the trailer and follows the balloon (radio communication). Reverse the process after landing AND then tail gate!
