Famous Balloon Quote:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
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.

The basket of a balloon is commonly made of wicker, which is used because it is lightweight and very strong. The baskets are made in different sizes to match the size of the balloon. When modern ballooning was born in the 1960s, aluminum and fiberglas materials were tried, but they were not as flexible.
