Been around balloons all my life. Hoping to check out around Christmas. Fly a Viva 90 and old viva 77, shall also be flying the hopper (LBL 25 demo artwork) once I check out.
While at uni, (in between drinking and partying...and of course studying *coughs*) I'm crewing and flying with a local pilot who also flies a V-77.
Hey Tom, yeah remembered you from both places too.
You could always build it there, then bring it here to fly it... :)
Keep it on your to-do list and you'll get there one day. Took me about 5 years or more to convince myself that it was a good idea, and definately was. I'd do it again in a heart beat if I had the funds to throw around lol. Now am looking around for a balloon that I can actually carry passengers in. Doesnt do much good to have your private certificate if the balloon you fly will only hold one!
I really dont know that many people under the age of 20 that are aqround balloons as much as myself.
Ive been ballooning all my life too, My parents got involved before i was born and made many friends that i grew up knowing and crewing for.
im going to get my lisence here pretty soon.
thanks and good luck with your proposal.
I live in Ohio, in the US and we go all over the place for balloon rallys even if it's half a country away.
I will admit ballooning is my passion. haha.
my brother made his very own miniture balloon for his high school project. he found the fabric and made his own basket and burners.
Yeah my brother learned a lot when he made that balloon.
So i live in Canton, Ohio and we have our own little balloon classic every year that goes with our football hall of fame. We dont have as many balloons as ABQ but we get a great crowd. ABQ is an experience i know i could never forget...looking up in the sky and every direction you look theres at least 3 balloons. it's amazing.
