ATTENTION:
Beginning April 1st. 2016 The FAA is starting a new student pilot application process that will take 5 weeks. The student must now arrive with a student licence in hand. This new process starts by filling out your 8710 form @ http://www.faa.gov/search/?omni=MainSearch&q=Form+8710-1%2C+Airman+Certificate+and%2For+Rating+Application
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 5 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. For more info. call us at (505) 859-2786.

Congratulations on your decision to work with drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). Many experts are predicting an economic boom in this field over the next few years. The U.S. Federal Aviation Association (FAA) projects that 30,000 drones could be in the nationís skies by 2020 and theyíre going to need pilots to fly them.
Cloud 9 Balloon School Offers the most complete UAV Flight Training Programs Available. You will find all kinds of drone schools/collages claiming if you take their classes you can commercially fly your drone this is false. You MUST have a pilot certificate in some form of aircraft to commercially fly drones. A hot air balloon rating is the fastest, easiest, cheapest and funnest way to legally commercially fly a drone. We start with the Balloon training at sunrise then UAV training if needed, then ground school after lunch. We will then help you register your drones and help you file your 333 exemptions with the FAA and teach you how to fill out your FAA monthly activity reports.
UAV Pilots are fast becoming the hot new career of the century. Whether youíre a hobbyist or want to make it a career, we can help make your dream come true for you!

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.
