    I took a balloon flight about 20 years ago and at that time the pilot told me there was no such thing as a balloon instructor. If you wanted to learn you needed instruction from a commercial balloon pilot. So since I had a valid private license, I was able to log about 90 minutes balloon time. I don't know what the rules are now.

    ... pending any new regs, that's about the size of it. The "regulator's" response to the issue, based on the performance based risk, there isn't enough to warrant a change in the oversight and rule changes. Just who is the "regulator'' supposed to be insuring safety for?? It looks like the public gets it in the shorts again. Why do we even have a "regulator" if they aren't going to do their job??
