Want to Fly Your New Balloon Yourself?
People usually get their start by taking a balloon ride and/or volunteering to help with a Balloon Chase Crew. Being a crewmember allows you to become more familiar with some of the most important aspects of ballooning from spectator and passenger safety, to inflation procedures, chasing, landing procedures and landowner relations. This hands-on experience sometimes leads to a desire to learn to fly.
Kansas City AeroSports offers hot air balloon flight lessons on a very limited basis at this time. We also have relationships with other commercial pilots who are excellent flight instructors. In addition to flight training and an FAA checkride, you will need to complete a written exam for the FAA to earn your lighter-than-air pilot certificate/license. If you have more questions about what is required for your training feel free to visit Cameron Balloon’s Learn to Fly web page.
