Join Our Crew

Driving (van with trailer) to a launch site that we select that day. We usually have three "chasers," and one has to drive (and possibly back up) the van towing a 7 x 10 trailer.
Inflating the balloon. It takes about 20 minutes, and it’s not physically difficult. There’s a little heavy lifting but the equipment comes out of the trailer pretty much in the configuration that we need it in.
Following the balloon during flight. We go an average of 6-8 miles in an hour. Don't worry, the balloon is big and colorful, and easy to spot.
Packing up. We squeeze the air out of the balloon. Then we put the balloon into a large bag and carry all the equipment to the trailer.
Light champagne toast with the passengers and landowners and perhaps telling a few stories.
Our crew drives everyone back to their cars.
