View "From the Ground Up" crew training trailer




Our new and improved Crew Training video has been remastered from the original tapes with new graphics and additional helpful scenes.  The Crew Training DVD includes those improvements, as well as adding two segments that show scenes launching and packing the Aerostar (7 minutes) and FireFly (5 minutes) balloons types.   A bonus track includes some additional comments by Dan Sherrill talking about fuel levels and flying.




Produced at the request of & in association with experienced balloon pilots & crew, this tape takes you through the entire process of setting up, launching, chasing, recovering & packing balloons. Instructs persons on the components, safety precautions and skills necessary to successfully crew for hot air ballooning. This is the second edition of the tape first produced in 1989.

"From the lighthearted overviews to the step-by-step instruction, this video provides a clear explanation of crew training techniques."

Donna Cook Eastman, Ballooning Magazine
