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.
In their simplest form, balloon competitions score how close a pilot can get to a pre-determined target. Small weighted markers are dropped at the target. The challenge is to be the closest to the target, but unlike all other forms of flying, balloon pilots do not have direct control of their direction of flight. The balloon simply drifts with the wind.

Balloons do most of their flying in the boundary layer of air close enough to the earth's surface to be affected by it. Just as water flows around and over rocks in a stream, so does air flow over and around obstructions in the landscape. Balloonists learn to "hide" behind a hill or tree line to gain calm conditions at launch, and to stay clear of rotors a little further downwind of those same obstructions during flight. Balloons flow with the air currents up and down riverbeds and valleys, and around hills and buildings. Working with these local variations is much of balloon flight planning.
