Big Red Balloon's Pilot Training
FAA Certified Balloon Pilot Training
• 10 flight hours
During the flight training stage YOU fly the balloon under the direction of a Commercial Lighter-Than-Air Rated Pilot. In addition, we encourage student pilots to participate as ground crew on our passenger flights. The knowledge gained as a crewmember accelerates all aspects of your training, saving you time and money.
What is the cost of pilot training?
The cost is $150-$250 per flight lesson depending on whether the training would be in your balloon or ours. The total cost will vary from $1000 to $2000. Training in your own balloon is the least expensive alternative. We will design a personal training program to meet your needs and previous experience.
Our training program complies with FAA FAR Part 61.
