The Colorado Balloon Club (CBC) was created 42 years ago to promote hot-air and gas ballooning throughout the state of Colorado. Each month, the CBC holds regular meetings themed around ballooning education, flying events for members and non-members to get together and fly, and tailgate parties for crews and pilots to enjoy.
Our website is designed to serve as a resource for pilots, crew and enthusiasts to find more information about flying in the Denver/Ft Collins area and throughout Colorado. We invite you to browse our site, contact us with questions, and join us for our monthly flying events or club meetings.
As of January 1, 2013 all members using handheld radios under the CBC license will have to be under the "narrowband" rule. Make sure your radios are narrowbanded and frequencies set per our license.
Due to declining attendance at our monthly club meetings we have changed the schedule for those meetings. Begining in 2016 our meetings will be held quarterly. The meeting dates will be; Feb. 18, May 19, Aug. 20, and Nov. 17, 2016. Please plan to attend.
The club flight will be Saturday 20 November 2016 in Frederick CO. If you flew at the June event in Frederick, you can show up and fly without needing to do anything else. If you want to fly that day, but were not part of the June event, please contact Michael Gianneti 303-2126-1990 to get your insurance on file with the Town of Frederick. Pilot meeting will be at 7 AM. Back up day will be Sunday 21 November.
Please check the CBC Race Line 303-544-2FLY (2359) or contact the balloonmeister Stephen Rowland 303-941-7113 for further information.
The annual CBC After Holiday Party is planned for Saturday January 21 2017. Location is the Knights of Columbus Hall in Denver starting at 4PM. The location is the same as last year, and there is parking at the Hall. Please watch your mail or email for further information.
