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
