Flight Report: G-ODAD ~ Keeping It In The Family

One of the most commonly asked questions you get as a balloon pilot is simply “How did you get into ballooning?”. I have an equally simple answer – my father, James, is also a pilot! I grew up going ballooning with my dad. Becoming more and more passionate and, to some extent, obsessed with each passing flight.

My father now flies for fun rather than commercially enjoying what he describes as his “ballooning retirement” flying family and friends, while also helping people learn to fly in his role as a BBAC appointed Instructor.

With October forgetting where it appears in the calendar and most of the UK basking in a very strange and unseasional heat wave bringing settled weather and perfect flying conditions he jumped at the chance to take to the skies.
