When Timothy Cole II wanted to learn to fly hot air balloons, he turned to The Balloon Training Academy for hot air balloon training! Tim signed up for our Private Pilot Knowledge Test Prep Course to pass the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam.

Tim writes, “I’d really like to extend a huge thank you for all you do and for developing this course. I went from 26/60 to 55, 55, and 57/60 (on the pre-test and post-test practice exams). More importantly, this was my first step in my ballooning pursuit and I can say it has only fueled my passion more. While learning is a continuing process, I feel that this course created a strong foundation.”

Tim went on to receive expert flight training with his dad, a legendary balloonist himself! Tim also used our Private Pilot Check Ride Prep Course to ease his nerves before the big day!

After successfully passing his check ride (practical exam) with a Designated Pilot Examiner, Tim wrote us “Finally, thank you The Balloon Training Academy and Adam Magee. I know that without your ground school course for my test and the check ride course, I would have been a nervous wreck. You’re an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to pursue the sport! I really can’t thank you enough.

Let us help you learn to fly a hot air balloon and earn your pilot certificate!
