A couple of Quick Points 07/13/2021


Recommended Posts


We are again providing free downloads and updates for the National Balloon Classic map files again this year.  If you use the HotAir.app (or any application for flying) and would like the KML or GPX files for the maps and the targets for the National Balloon Classic they will be available on the HotAirBalloonist.com site in the Download Center.  Navigate to the Download Center.  Look in the right hand column and you will see a category called “Launch and Land” (MAPS & GPS files), under that category you will see a forum called Indianola.  This is where you will find the map file downloads.  IMPORTANT!  Remember to check the Follow button in that forum.  When you “Follow” an item, and a new file is uploaded, you will receive an instant email notification!  Whenever the map is altered you will know about it and you will be able to download a new version instantly.  Never wonder again if your map is up to date!

Digital Waivers

Would you like to have your waiver on your electronic device?  We can help with that!  Send us your waiver.  We will digitize it and place it on our server.  Then we will provide you a link you can use on your device. (phone, mini, tablet, ipad ect)  Simply type in the passengers name, have them sign with their finger and send a copy (via email) to yourself and the passenger.  Quick Easy and paperless.  We have a tutorial presentation on how this works for one of our clients.  Have a look and let us know if you would like this set up for you.
