Planning is well underway to start up a Junior balloonist group for youth aged 11-14. As people can gain a private pilot license at 16, those youth aged 15 and over should ideally join the club and learn all the crewing aspects of ballooning and then start on a program to learn to fly.
We have an active Junior Balloonist Group which has been meeting once a month since May 2017. In October they took baskets across to the Waihi Trolley Derby Day and did basket burns both at the start and finish of the derby.
