Crew Application

About Crewing

Operating a balloon takes several people to help get these beautiful machines into the air, chase it down during flight, and recover the balloon afterwards.  Many of our nationwide pilots travel with only one or two people and will depend on local volunteer crew to help them out and guide them.

It's an exciting and fun-filled experience that many find more enjoyable than they anticipated.  In fact, many of our volunteer crew have been coming-back to crew for the same pilots for many years.

If you would like to come join the excitement, fill-out the form below and we will contact you with more information and even opportunities to come crew before the race and 'learn the ropes'.
