8:00am - Noon MST
The virtual BFA Junior Balloonist Camp will provide campers with the basic knowledge they will need to start their ballooning adventures. Topics will include Weather, Flight Operations, Aeronautical Decision Making, Navigation, FARs and Airspace, Balloon Systems, Safety (Propane, Fans, Powerlines), Types of Ballooning (Gas, Competition, Rides Sports), Technology, Repair and Maintenance as well as several open panel discussions.
This will not be your typical webinar sessions where you simply sit and listen to someone talk. We expect to have interaction and involvement form the campers throughout the sessions. We have planned lively sessions with excellent speakers from across the country. We have chosen presenters who have incredible experience and knowledge. We hope to give campers a good idea of what it takes to become involved in hot air ballooning and light a spark that with evolve into a love of the sport.
