The role of ballooning ground crew begins with the preperation of the balloon which is overseen by the pilot.

Once the balloon is airborne, you will then follow the balloon with the retrieve vehicle. You will be in radio contact with the pilot throughout the flight and once landed will engage with the landowner to ascertain permission to retrieve the balloon. Once the balloon is packed away, we return to the launch site or initial meeting point if different, the whole adventure usually taking between two and a half and four hours if local.
