Hot Air Balloon Training
Gone-With-The-Wind Ltd can offer unique opportunities for training to the international standards of the UK CAA and EASA (European Air Safety Agency).
Not only are Phil & Allie both Instructors but Phil is one of the UK's most senior Examiners (Private & Commercial) with recent involvement in helping develop new regulations for use in the 31 signatory countries of EASA.
Training programmes have already been tailor-made for civil and military authorities as wide-ranging as Iran, Egypt, Russia, Chile, India and Indonesia. Self-contained flight and ground school courses can be run in a country of the client's choice or at our school in southern Portugal.
We offer balloon training to UK/EASA private or commercial standards in the UK and overseas. We have 50 years of combined instructor and examiner experience to cover every aspect of the balloon training syllabus.
In the Algarve we work with Helena at Barlavento Balloons - links for more information:
Feedback from a previous student:
"I wish to say that I enjoyed our week together in Portugal immensely. The weather could have been better for flying, but for the first time, there was time to go over 'the fundamentals', which are so easily forgotten, when there is a rush to fly. I also very much enjoyed the professionalism that I experienced and I really feel that I have a much better understanding of the fundamentals, safety procedures, the general handling of the balloon and airmanship. It is a very pleasant feeling and a good foundation for further flying. So, thank you very much to all of you. I was especially impressed by the way Helena and Fernando handled the break-down. We hardly noticed all the work 'behind the scenes', and - again professionalism all over and little sleep for both of you."
