Homebuilding a Hot Air Balloon
These pages detail my saga in constructing a hot air balloon. You will see them update periodically as I get further along in the process.
The links on the left will help navigate you through the site. The "Balloon Construction" section has my narrative of the process, along with lots of pictures. The "Construction Log Book" holds scans of my log book that keeps track of when I did what and how long it took.
The "Government Paperwork" section contains copies of the forms I filed in getting the balloon registered with the FAA.
The "Special Thanks" section gives credit to all those people who made my project possible.
If you are interested in getting more information, the "For More Information" section gives you contact information for people who really know what they are doing. If you seriously think you might build a balloon, explore every item on this list.
