pilot with some 16 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 were two major concerns in ballooning safety and good landowner relations Without cooperative land owners Hying 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 The balloons dont generally cause any damage to the property In fact there is a better chance that the balloons end up with minor cuts in the fabric
