We are proud to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to growing the sport of ballooning! We are a 100% volunteer and pro-bono organizaiton. All money received is re-invested into the ballooning community. We are making a tremendous impact on ballooning, we’ve helped approximately 50% of all new pilots since our beginning and 85% of new pilots this year alone! Thank you for your support!
We are excited to have negotiated with Ferrellgas a Nationwide discount for hot air balloon pilots on propane! Propane expense represents a large expense and barrier of entry to some students. We are excited to pass the savings onto the rest of the community. Get a little, give a little – free will donation (suggested $10) money raised will help us fund our Training Balloon program. This program creates club balloons across the USA to offer training to students. Help us make balloon training accessible and affordable!
