Crew Development Committee Mission

To promote education and recognition for AAAA non-pilot members.

About Crew Development

Ballooning is not a one-person activity and pilots depend on dedicated and educated crew members. We seek to provide crew members with valuable experiences, fun, and recognition. We welcome new members! Contact the Crew Development Chair for information.

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.
