  13. BFA about the NTSB reccomendation to the FAA

    Well written Scott. I wish the NTSB and FAA would put more interest in addressing 14 CFR 91.119 which is a greater concern. We can "self police" and grow through this site and professional organizations like the BFA without their involvment.

CommentWas this review helpful to you?YesNoReport abuse 5God Controls the wind: I Control the Burner ByScott Kuhnson January 27, 2014 Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase This book is a quaint glimpse into a world few have experienced. For years while standing on the ground, I also looked up and longed to be in that small wicker basket. Little did I know that the pilots also desire to meet us, on the ground and introduce us to this method of flight. To see the power of God and the beauty He created for us from the floating on the wind, you will undoubtedly experience the love of God directed to us. A truly relaxing read while Kevin is in "control of the burner".

About the Author: Kevin Cloney was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and raised in southern California. In 1989 he won a hot air balloon flight as an award for a sales contest spiking his interest in the sport of Hot Air Ballooning. Later he moved to Albuquerque New Mexico called "the balloon capitol of the world." There he had the opportunity to crew for other "Aeronauts" which he thoroughly enjoyed. It wasn't long before he knew he wanted to pilot his own aircraft and the adventure began. After many years of flying, Kevin was asked by his passengers about his adventures in flying. Inspired and encouraged be began to write about his "life lessons learned" in ballooning.As they say the rest is history. Currently he has two books on Amazon with more forthcoming.
