Training resumes

3 Oct 2023

With the new European licensing regulations for hot-air balloon pilots came the requirement for qualification training for tethered flights. The Pilâtre de Rozier training center has therefore trained three young pilots who have obtained their qualification. The pilots were trained in the unusual exercise of raising a hot-air balloon, held in place by a triangulation of 3 ropes attached to the ground by vehicles. The balloon can thus rise and descend, carrying passengers who can discover the joy of the air about 20 meters above the ground.
