Captive flight

Whether it’s to identify your company during a convention, to pique people's curiosity and entice them to take part in a popular gathering, to distinguish your event, or simply to underline a family celebration, we offer you the possibility of having a hot air balloon on the site of your choice in tethered flight. Our balloons can be personalized with your logo, your name or the slogan of your event or company.

In order to perform a tethered flight, you must have access to a grassy area of at least 200 sq. ft. that’s free of obstacles.

Aerial advertising

Become a hot air balloon pilot

You want to become a hot air balloon pilot? Balad'Air can help you realize your dream.

However, you should know that a hot air balloon is a registered aircraft, governed by Transport Canada's aviation regulations and that an aviation license is required for those who wish to fly a hot air balloon.

The flight course, divided into 2 parts (theoretical and practical), leads to obtaining the aviation license and touches on several areas such as:

  • Aviation regulations
  • Communications (control tower, crew, owner relations, etc.)
  • Meteorology (map analysis, understanding forecasts, etc.)
  • Hot air ballooning (nomenclature, practice, etc.)

 

Coûts

It is difficult to estimate costs accurately, as it all depends on how quickly you learn, how long you spread out your practical training, and what equipment you have available. If you have to rent a vehicle, a trailer and a balloon, your investment will be much higher than if you own all your equipment.

Pour donner un ordre de grandeur, prévoir de 6 000 $ à 10 000 $ si vous ne possédez pas de montgolfière, de 3 000 $ à 5 000 $ si vous en possédez une.

Durée de la formation

Les portions pratiques et théoriques ont avantage à se faire de façon simultanée et dans le plus court laps de temps possible afin d'éviter de perdre les acquis des derniers cours. Il faut prévoir de 15 à 20 vols pratiques, en plus des heures de leçons théoriques et d'études. Si les conditions météo le permettent, et que vous avez une grande disponibilité, une formation peut être complétée en 2 mois.

Santé et restriction

Vous devez obtenir un certificat médical attestant de votre bonne condition physique auprès d’un médecin autorisé par Transports Canada.
