About Us

As a new club, formed in early 2014 with the charter to grow and develop the sport of Hot Air Ballooning, the East Coast Balloon Club is still growing and welcomes new members in any capacity.

Ballooning is a lot more than pilots and balloons, many other roles are required to ensure the balloons fly safely, that competitions are run fairly and the club is run professionally and balloonists are certainly more than just pilots.

Training Programs

Part of the club;s responsibility is to assist in improving the skills of members through a series of training sessions that include both class room and in-field activities.

Some of the focus program are listed below but others will be added as required

As a social and sports club every attempt is made to ensure the sessions are conducted in a light and social environment.
