Crew Development Committee Mission

To promote education and recognition for AAAA crew members or other people who are not pilots in the ballooning community.

About Crew Development

Many hands make light work is a saying that very much applies to flying a hot air balloon.  Without the help of a reliable, educated, and enthusiastic crew, a hot air balloon pilot isn’t going to fly very far. If you’ve ever been interested in learning more about what is involved in getting a beautiful balloon up, up in the air, contact the Crew Development Chair for information. Don’t be shy! We welcome and enjoy giving people hands-on experiences for this one of a kind sport.

Committee Meetings

The Crew Development committee meets monthly on the Tuesday prior to the AAAA flying event. Please contact the Crew Development Chair for details and meeting location.
