'R' Recreation & CWC Community Education

Introduction to Ballooning

Instructors Pat Newlin and Andy Samuelson, hot air balloon pilots, will cover the basics of hot air ballooning. Participants will learn about crewing for a hot air balloon – which includes set up, chasing, packing up, and refueling. This class includes a Friday night classroom instructional session followed by a Saturday morning hands-on opportunity on CWC’s soccer field to crew (weather permitting). If needed, the hands-on portion will be rescheduled. Each participant will get a tethered balloon ride. The class cost includes gas fees for the ride.
