ATTENTION:
Beginning April 1st. 2016 The FAA started a new student pilot application process that will take 4 weeks. You can no longer just pick one up at the FAA. The student must now arrive with a student licence in hand. This new process starts by you filling out your 8710 form @

START YOUR FAA 8710-1 STUDENT CERTIFICATE NOW!

then open it in PDF read instructions on filling it out, height is in inches and if you use a PO Box draw a map to your house on a separate piece of paper. Then take this to your local FAA FSDO Office with your I.D. the student certificate is free. THEY WILL ARGUE WITH YOU TELLING YOU THIS IS NOT THE NEW WAY OF DOING IT. Tell them that you will be training out of state and that it makes no sense to fly to New Mexico just to have me sign a piece of paper and that Balloon Training only take 2 weeks and it takes 4 weeks to get the student certificate. You may also go to an airport and have a instructor sign your 8710 they may charge for this. If you are not able to get a student license in your state we recommend doing your pilot training in 2 steps come out for 1 week fly until your are ready to solo, go back home wait for your student licence to arrive in the mail then come back for 1 week to solo and take your check ride. I have just 1 more thing to say I have looked at other websites and have called some other balloon training companies as well, not one of them said any thing about this new FAA student licence process. If you think i'm Wrong you can see it for you self @ http://www.faa.gov/pilots/become/student_cert/
PLEASE don't shoot the messenger for giving you this information and we look forward to helping you with your piloting needs.

Become a hot air balloon pilot with our fast efficient training programs. We are one of New Mexico's largest and most respected training facilities. Here in beautiful New Mexico we have pilot training all year round. Our Private 8 hour course is $2,000 using one of our balloons. This course can usually be completed within two weeks. Our 10 hour commercial course is $2,500 using one of our balloons. These prices include intense flight instruction and FREE ON SITE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR YOU TO USE WHILE YOU'RE HERE. Additional hours are billed at just $250.00 per hour. WE are also one of the only training schools to have all major brands of balloons available for your flight instruction including Aerostar, Cameron, Lindstrand and Balloon Works. This is by no means a crash course or short cut to a license. It is an intense teaching method that develops a students skills much more rapidly, because of the constant daily attention and the location of the training. There are two reasons we can complete our pilot training courses in such a short time. The first reason being the great New Mexico weather, and the second being the area that we teach in. It provides multiple landing sites (10 to 15 landings per flight) instead of the one or two landing sites the other companies can offer. We have trained 100's of students with a 100% pass rate. Pricing reflects a 25% cash discount.
