The AAAA Education Committee provides the necessary support for seminars and ground schools. It's mission is to provide quality training to AAAA members and the public on various aspects of ballooning. Contact the Education Committee Chair for more information.
It takes more than just getting your pilot's license to become a good, safe pilot. It requires more than just crewing a few times to become a good crew member. Our educational programs and ground schools promote continued learning and increased crew and pilot safety and awareness.
Our goal is to keep the AAAA members informed and educated on safety, operational, and regulatory aspects of hot air ballooning at a reasonable rate. Our seminars provide continuously updated, state-of-the-art presentations techniques.
All AAAA Instructors and Volunteers donate their time and expertise to help educate you. Please thank them for taking valuable time off from ballooning!
We provide seminars, private ground schools, and commercial ground schools throughout the year. Check the on-line seminar schedule periodically to keep current of AAAA training events by clicking on the link to the right.
We provide handouts that were used in the various education events.
We offer an excellent selection of books and supplies pertaining to ballooning, regulations, ground school requirements, and aviation so you don't have to travel all around to get what you need. We also bring these items to AAAA meetings for your convenience.
The Education Committee meets at 6 P.M. on the second Monday of every month (except for October ) at the Balloon Fiesta Office.
We're always looking for people interested in ballooning education. If you'd like to assist with AAAA's training events, please contact the Chairperson.
The Private Pilot Ground School scheduled for Feb is now full. We are offering a second Private Pilot Ground School to be held on June 3-5, 2017.
