Famous Balloon Quote:
I have known today a magnificent intoxication. I have learnt how it feels to be a bird. I have flown. Yes I have flown. I am still astonished at it, still deeply moved.
— Le Figaro, 1908.
How does the balloon get in the air in the first place? That's where the ground crew (or chase crew, two names, same job) comes in. The crew's number one job is to assist the pilot. This includes setting up the balloon, helping to make sure the basket is arranged and stocked with those things the pilot likes to take along, and to help achieve a safe lift off. Once the balloon is airborne, the crew takes the chase vehicle and follow the balloon for an hour or so.

Every task the crew performs has a reason for why it is done a certain way, and once that reason is discovered, it makes perfect sense. The trick to learning is to ask questions. Lots of questions. I have met many pilots, and have assisted with the set up of every major brand of balloon. I have asked hundreds of questions. I have yet to have any pilot treat a question like it was silly of me to ask.
