Learning to fly any aircraft is not cheap,

With that said, Hot Air Ballooning is one of the easiest and most affordable aviation sports to get in to.

Students can expect to spend up to $10,000 - $12,000 for training, if I provide everything.

If you have your own balloon, chase vehicle, crew, ancillary equipment and insurance I will train you for $3500.

The more you provide the cheaper it gets.

Full disclosure, this is my first student doing a final check flight with my other student prior to his solo.

I was taking the picture.
