Want to be part of a chase crew?  Mass Balloon Ascensions are scheduled daily and a special Balloon Glow is scheduled for Saturday night. Balloon pilots are always looking for additional help in inflating, chasing and deflating the balloon each day. You can become a part of Balloons Over Angel Fire by being at the launch field any or all of the mornings of Mass Balloon Ascensions no later than 6:30 AM and volunteer to assist a pilot with their balloon. In return, most pilots will also offer you a ride for your help! This is a great way to find out more about the sport of hot-air ballooning and have a fun experience.
