But there is much more to a hot air balloon launch and flight than just riding the wind. Hot air balloons are considered aircraft and are regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just as fixed-wing aircraft are. Hot air balloon pilots must pass a yearly in-flight certification to maintain his or her license as a commercial pilot. The balloons themselves must pass a yearly safety inspection which includes testing the fabric of the balloon, fuel system, integrity of the basket, .. continue reading burners, and all other related equipment before the balloon receives its annual airworthiness certificate to fly. Unlike fixed-wing aircraft, a hot air balloon is dependent upon fair weather. Since wind and heat come with the sun, the ideal time for a balloon to fly is early in the morning before the sun gets too high in the sky and in the early evening as the sun begins to descend. To inflate the balloon, pilots use inflation fans to fill the balloon with outside air.
