Famous Balloon Quote:
There's something in a flying horse,
There's something in a huge balloon.
— William Wordsworth, 'Peter Bell,' Prologue. Stanza 1.
When the pilot has located a nice field for landing, the crew is informed (usually by radio) of the landing site. The goal of the crew is two fold; they want to have the vehicle at the landing field before the pilot lands, and still have enough time to be waiting in the selected field to assist in any way with the landing operation. Sound pretty simple? Well... it is, most of the time! It is often explained that crewing is 90% just plain common sense, and 10% training.

Hot air balloons use plain old air for lift. By heating the air inside the balloon, the pilot makes that air less dense (lighter) than the outside air, and the balloon rises. As the internal air cools, the balloon becomes heavier, and descends if the pilot doesn't add more heat.
