Flight Instruction

Phil Bryant has been a flight instructor in fixed wing, single and multi-engine airplane since 1965 holding an instrument instructor rating since 1977, with over 5200 hours in General Aviation aircraft.  In 1992, Phil decided to devote his aviation skills to the sport of ballooning.  Ballooning Adventures of Texas was formed for the purpose of providing FAA part 141 training for balloonists and in 1996 was awarded the FAA certificate for training Private and Commercial balloon pilots.  The flight school was opened at that time, training 15 pilots in the first two years.  The excellence in training continues but at a somewhat reduced pace, due to the current economic pressure which is common to most air sports.

Currently, flight Instruction is offered on an individual basis using all of the class materials and experience used over the past 47 years.  Having been an FAA Pilot Examiner, I know the requirements necessary to prepare you to pass the practical test for your pilot certificate at both levels.  We can offer you instruction in your balloon or the school balloon, please call for pricing.
