New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 4, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung g Wednesday December Q 7A aims for happy landings Twentytwo hotair balloons will launch from New Braunfels locations 14 and 15 as part of the annual Festtage celebration The gentle giants of the sky will be looking for friendly places to land Organizers of Glowfest the first of its kind in New Braunfels are asking area residents ranchers and farmers with open land for their assistance in providing potential landing sites Those who dont mind haying the balloons land on their property are encouraged to put out signals that can be seen from the air white for yes blue or red for no The balloons are federally registered aircraft and must adhere to all federal aviation regulations Unlike other aircraft they are at the mercy of the wind and therefore cannot always predict where they will fly or land Balloon pilots must look for a friendly and safe place to land The balloonmeister Dr Tim Brady a local pilot with some IS years of experience said Most people are excited about these colorful bubbles descending slowly onto their property They settle gently and softly across an area of approximately 100 square Brady who has flown in Europe and throughout the United States is responsible for the safety and organization of the balloon activity He said there are two major concerns in ballooning safety and good landowner relations Without cooperative land owners flying is difficult and can be he said Balloon pilots have chase crews that try to find landowners to request permission to land but that is not always possible in open areas and vacant lots he said The balloons dont generally cause any damage to the property hi fact there is a better chance that the balloons end up with minor i cuts inIthefabric over someone steps on Brady said The biggest problem is that the balloons will frighten AMERICA Glowfest organizers are asking landowners to display signals to guide to places where landings will be acceptable animals The sound of the heater used to keep the balloons up spooks dogs cows and horses much like fireworks The balloon pilots are vigilant about animals in pens and try to avoid them if at all The Glowfest organizers are hoping that local residents inside the potential flight pattern will welcome the balloonists onto their property If there is a safe place and the balloons are welcome people are asked to put out a white sheet or similar white marker If the landowner wants to prohibit landing put out some sort of red fabric or a large blue plastic tarp As the balloons begin to land they descend in altitude to about 250 feet above the ground to set up a safe approach They can see these signals if the fabric or tarp is spread in the open area that can be j used for landing If there are any questions or special concerns Brady has asked that landowners call Anna Lee Hicks at the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce at 6252385 We want to make this a fun event and create excellent landowner relations for balloonists in the New Braunfels he said The event will start with a multiple site launch of the balloons at 7 Dec 14 That night there will be a spectacular static display at Prince Solms Park a balloon glow in which the inflated balloons will light up their airborne heaters and create a look of giant Christmas tree ornaments The show will last from about 6 to 7 During the display Christmas music will be added to the festive event On Dec 15 a mass liftoff of all 22 balloons will take place at at Canyon High School
