Practical information

Badges and car pass

Wearing a badge or wristband is required to access “Ballonville Pilote” and the launch area. You must put the pass on your vehicle which will have to access on the airfield. There will be no replacement if lost.

Launch area

The land is protected by an air show order and TRA (Temporary restricted area). Only the Flight Director will give the permission to enter. The aerodrome frequency is 119.55.

Flights

19 flights are scheduled on the event 10 days. Morning and evening flight, both lighthouse moments of the day on Grand Est Mondial Air Ballons®. At this time the weather is splendid in our region. The opportunity to do very beautiful flights.

Breakfasts

Included in your registration: every morning from 5:15 am until 7:30 am, enjoy your breakfast with direct access to the briefing.

Breifings

5:45 am and 6:00 pm. Please refer to the program for schedules of special briefings.

PILOTS' PROGRAM
Gaz Station

Let’s enjoy a larger propane station, unique in Europe! The Gas Station is located near the Chapel in the south of the base. Access is strictly pedestrian and pilots conduct filling operations themselves, under the supervision of expert technicians.

CAREFUL: if the flight director cancels a flight, it is forbidden to enter, take off, land, fly, and fly over the TRA.

In the morning, if a flight is cancelled, the gas station is closed. In the evening if there is Bruners Song, instead of flight, gas station will open: 8:30 pm until 10:30 pm.

Only the vehicle with proper BLUE pass will be admitted in the gas parking lot. Your crews have a PINK pass (without access to the launch field and the Gas Station). You must bring your GAS CARD. Without this card, the organizers will refuse to serve you. You will also need to present the blue coupon (duly filled)

The purge of the gas cylinders for balloons travelling by plane or boat will take place on August 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 3rd & 5th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Booking at registration is mandatory.
