Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons®
For more than 30 years now, Pilâtre de Rozier Organisation has managed the entire organization, marketing and communication of Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons®. This international event which takes place every other year, brings together hundreds of pilots and balloons from around the world.
All year long
Since 1993, Pilâtre de Rozier Organisation has been located on Chambley aerodrome at the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Lorraine (between the cities of Verdun, Metz and Nancy), and it has installed its permanent offices in September 2008. Seven employees work daily on the premises and warehouses of 2400 m2, facing the runway. If the preparation of Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons® is an important part of the activity, the site is a destination all year long because the company offers many other services.
Ballooning specialist for over 30 years, Pilâtre de Rozier Organisation manages a fleet of balloons, for communities and companies. It flew with balloons and passengers in Grand Est region, Europe and around the world.
Pilâtre de Rozier Organisation also imports balloons (American brand, Head Balloons), and has an approved maintenance workshop. The company is also event organizer, public and press relations agency, and rents rooms to hold seminars and conferences for all types of organizations.
Teaching, Training and Resources
Educational visits are held regularly in Aéromusée (Museum of Pilâtre de Rozier) in partnership with the Regional Natural Park of Lorraine and the National Education with the label “Charter Education”. Educational workshops help discover the air world through treasure hunt, making model balloons, scientific explanations and history of ballooning.
The company also has a Training Center. This structure provides dual skill in teaching themes: ballooning and communication. Indeed, it offers courses in two different departments: International School of Ballooning founded in 1983 that trained nearly 70 French and foreign pilots, and Communication Workshops including digital and strategic fields.
A resources center (images, photos, texts and works), unique in the world, being digitized, contains a large collection of historical documents relating to aviation and ballooning.
A center of excellence in an aerodrome in connection with other aeronautical disciplines practiced on the site, the Pilâtre de Rozier team looks forward to seeing you all year long on Chambley aerodrome!
