Overview

Aimed at student pilots who are learning to fly hot-air balloons, certified pilots wishing to add balloon ratings to their license, and commercial balloon pilots who are teaching students, this is the FAA’s first textbook specifically for balloon flying. Subjects covered include equipment and components; preparing for flight, inflation, launch, and landing; inflight maneuvers; and postflight procedures such as deflation and fueling. Complete information on special operations, emergency procedures, regulations and maintenance, earning a pilot certificate, and appendices of sample weather briefings, checklists, and a reprint of 14 CFR Part 31 (the regulation governing airworthiness standards for manned balloons) make this a complete balloon-flying certification study kit.
