AAAA flying events are supported by the AAAA Flying Events Committee. The committee's mission is to provide opportunities for competition and the improvement of flying skills. For more information about the Flying Event Committee, please contact the committee chair.
Just getting your pilot's certificate is not enough. We seek to advance the technical and competitive aspect of flying, improve flying skills, and promote a safer flying environment. We provide a wide variety of flying events; formal, informal, local, or out-of-town.
Not only do these events provide a forum for pilots, but also for any balloonists interested in participating in the other side of a competitive event - scoring, organizing, and being a balloonmeister.
We're serious about flying, but we always enjoy our tailgating afterwards where the crew usually gets a chance to participate in a competition of their own - one that involves their culinary artistry.
Come join us and share in the fun!
Remember to check the Windtalker for times and locations of AAAA Flying Events the week before each event!

First things first: understand just what competitive flying is all about and learn the event rules. Get to know what is involved in scoring an event; just exactly what do you have to do for those points! And finally, learn just where you rate and who's ahead or behind in the club standings.
Basically, we hold a balloon rally every month and need help with planning, scorers, and on-field support for the events. Flying Events Committee Meetings are held the Monday prior to each Flying Event. You do not need to be a pilot to assist with these events.
