Balloon Flying Handbook - FAA H 8083-11 is FAAs first book dedicated to balloon flying. The handbook serves to introduce balloon flight to prospective students who are seeking information on this exciting sport.
Beginning with a brief history of balloon flight, the book provides information and guidance to pilots in the performance of maneuvers and procedures. Subjects covered include equipment and components, preparing for flight, inflation, launch and landing, in-flight maneuvers, and post-flight procedures such as deflation and fueling. Chapters are included on special operations such as tethering and emergency procedures, regulations, and maintenance, earning a pilot certificate, and aeronautical decision making. Appendices provide sample weather briefings, checklists, a reprint of 14 CFR Part 31 (the regulation governing the airworthiness standards for manned balloons), and an airman application.
This new FAA-H-8083-11 is the official source for all balloon questions appearing on the FAA Knowledge Exams.
