Education Committee: Mission
It takes more than just getting your pilot's license to become a good, safe pilot. It requires more than just crewing a few times to become a good crew member. Our educational programs and ground schools promote continued learning and increased crew and pilot safety and awareness.
Our goal is to keep the AAAA members informed and educated on safety, operational, and regulatory aspects of hot air ballooning at a reasonable rate. Our seminars provide continuously updated, state-of-the-art presentations techniques.
All AAAA Instructors and Volunteers donate their time and expertise to help educate you. Please thank them for taking valuable time off from ballooning!
We provide seminars, private ground schools, and commercial ground schools throughout the year. Check the on-line seminar schedule periodically to keep current of AAAA training events by clicking on the link to the right.
AAAA has developed a very good video on power line safety. Click on the link on the right to watch it online.
We offer an excellent selection of books and supplies pertaining to ballooning, regulations, ground school requirements, and aviation so you don't have to travel all around to get what you need. We also bring these items to AAAA meetings for your convenience.
The Education Committee meets the second Monday of every month (except for October ) at the Balloon Fiesta Office.
We're always looking for people interested in ballooning education. If you'd like to assist with AAAA's training events, please contact the Chairperson.
