Famous Balloon Quote:
Build lightness in.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
During the flight the balloon is followed by the chase crew. The chase crew is usually in radio contact with the pilot, and the crew's job is to be at the landing site when the balloon returns to earth. This can be quite an adventure in itself! After the balloon lands, the crew packs the balloon back into the chase vehicle and everyone returns to the launch site. One of the most important parts of being on a chase crew is dealing with the public. When the balloon is landing, the chase crew asks the landowner for permission to retrieve the balloon.

Balloon pilots must be licensed by the F.A.A., just like pilots of other aircraft like airplanes and helicopters. The balloon is also a licensed aircraft, and requires regular safety inspections performed by a licenced repair facility.
