Event description

Description


While Balloon Fiesta features hundreds of beautiful hot air balloons, not all volunteers understand the science and mechanics of how they fly. We feel that everyone involved in putting on this event should have a basic understanding of this.

This training is now a part of the Navigator program, AIBF offers Crew Training, giving Navigators an opportunity to spend a morning learning about hot air balloons in a hands-on setting. Weather permitting, this class will include an inflation and glow.

Location: Public Safety Building (enter through Gate 4 - formerly Gate 16)

Here are the class details:
7:00a to 7:30a - Seminar Check in
7:30a to 9:30a - Balloon system hands-on
9:30a to 1:00p- Classroom

Participants will come away with a solid understanding of the mechanics of balloon inflation, the role of chase crew, and much more. Upon completion, you'll receive 1 Merit in the Above and Beyond Navigator Program.

NOTE: Please bring a pair of leather work gloves to this class.

If you are not planning to volunteer at Balloon Fiesta this year, please do not enroll in this course.

Upon completing the course, Navigators receive 1 Merit in the AIBF Above and Beyond Program.

If you are unable to attend the class once you have registered, please contact us at least 24 hours prior to the class time.

Note for couples: Please submit a registration for each individual. Do not register as a couple.
