Famous Balloon Quote:
There's something in a flying horse,
There's something in a huge balloon.
— William Wordsworth, 'Peter Bell,' Prologue. Stanza 1.
Most balloons have a crew of between 3 to 6 people. Most balloon crews are volunteer, and do not get paid. For most of us, it is a hobby. It's how we work off the stresses of the week, and get together to have a good time with an ever-changing hobby.

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.
