Introduction to Hot Air Ballooning (New) - R1 HVRHS
with Mick Murphy
Learn about the history and mechanics of this popular activity dating back to 1783 and spanning a rebirth in the early 1960s to the present. Session one covers history of hot-air ballooning configurations; military applications in the U.S. Civil War; and much more. Demonstration equipment is shown during the second class, along with a demonstration video. Please note that this is not a pilot certification class. Also, participants can choose if they wish to learn about “chase teams” (assisting with flights) from the instructor, who owns Aer Blarney Balloons, 92 Town Line Road, Bethlehem, CT, in order to earn credits for a free hot-air balloon ride AFTER the two classroom sessions.
