AAAA General Meeting Minutes July 26, 2011 M eeting was called to order by President Elisa Trillanes at 6:30pm ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Guest Speaker: “You Are Never too little to Have Big Dreams” Bobby Bradley and Troy Bradley. June 4, 2011 Bobby Bradley became the youngest person to solo a Hot Air Balloon. His story entailed the journey for Bobby to reach the sky.
The Saturday flight near Tome, was nearly perfect, KRQE-TV, Albuquerque, said and Bobby said the whole experience compared to the name of his airship which his father and grandmother built together, the "Heavenly Dream." "I knew I was ready," Bobby said. "I had all my equipment. I just wanted to go up." "I definitely felt my heart catch in my throat a little bit right at takeoff. That is always a really dramatic time with ballooning," Bobby's mother, Tami Bradley said. After a perfect touchdown 26 minutes later the Bradley’s celebrated by reciting the balloonist's prayer, a tradition for first-time flights, and toasted with sparkling cider substituting for champagne, KRQE-TV said.

News Article of Bobby’s Flight: ALBUQUERQUE, June 5 (UPI) -- After a 26-minute flight a 9-year-old New Mexico boy became the youngest trained pilot to solo in a hot air balloon, his mother said.
M urray Conrad "I just wanted to solo in a hot air balloon and I just happen to be 9," Bobby Bradley said. The boy's father, who designs and charts paths for balloons and holds dozens of ballooning records himself, expressed confidence in his small son, KOAT-TV, Albuquerque, reported. "He's a heck of a balloon pilot, especially for a 9-yearold," Troy Bradley said.

TH E GO LDEN RULE AND 10 CO MMANDMENTS O F CREWING
Rules and guidelines keep up safe by preserving the hard-won lessons of prior experience and mistakes. Knowing what they are, what they protect you from, and how to put them to use are each equally important. Crew don’t have the same formally written and quantifiable protocol, guidelines, and instruction as pilots. However, that doesn’t mean that crew don’t have a distinct skill set of their own. You can’t stay safe or protect others if you don’t know what the rules are. What follows are both general and specific guidelines for crew safety. A good place to start for any crew is with the simplest yet most comprehensive guideline:
WELCOME TO CREW CHIEF’S CORNER! (Copyright 2010 by Gordon S chwonthkowski)
THE GOLDEN RULE OF CREWING: ALWAYS ANTICIPATE YOUR NEEDS, YOUR PILOTS’ DECISIONS, YOUR BALLOON’S BEHAVIOR, AND YOUR NEXT 3 MOVES
Post this in plain view in your vehicle. This alone will keep you focused in real-time yet ahead of and out of most trouble regardless of flight circumstances. When you need more than this, rely on instruction combined with what you know. Listen to your pilot and crew chief for directions, follow them, and ask questions. Know yourself: your knowledge and skill levels, beliefs, physical abilities, limits, etc. Know your equipment: its performance parameters, size and time requirements, response times, limits, quirks, and what “normal” looks and sounds like.
Know what to do: how to handle routine setup and ground handling tasks, deliver first aid, prevent and manage emergencies, or handle hostile landowners. As a crew member, you actually have very little control over anything but yourself. Managing yourself well makes every crewing challenge easier. Learning gets faster and easier with time, and best of all those lessons are highly portable and transferable. For best results – the most safety and fun with the least risk possible – apply the following every time you crew:
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF CREWING 1. PRO TECT YO URSELF FIRST. Your equipment can be replaced – you cannot. If it can burn you, cove r up. Burners, propane, fan exhaust, and drop or crown lines pose burn threats. Wear layered organic clothes and leather gloves when handling these. If it moves, don’t ge t in front of it. Baskets, burners, vehicles, fan props, tie-offs, other launching balloons, and working crew all need space for safety – stay out of their way. Nobody outside the baske t leave s the ground. Keep everyone’s feet on the ground and hands off the basket at launch. Beware of becoming entangled in rope handles, parachute webbing, or crown, vent, and drop lines. Never clip, tie, or wrap yourself with a line. On hard landings, add weight only when the basket will not rebound back into flight. 2. FO LLOW DIRECTIO NS. Do what your pilot and crew chief ask – NOW! T iming and speed are crucial for safety. If you have no directions, think twice first and then act at once. Use your brain before your back; it’s stronger, safer, and easier. A bias for planned action (whether your pilot’s, crew chief’s, or yours) will save time, effort, expense, injury, and regret. 3. KNOW WHEN TO STO P. Learn how to stop your balloon’s fan and pull your balloon’s red line if you don’t know already. Any inflation may be halted at any time BY ANYONE for any safety reason. Ask your pilot to pre-set limits for immediately stopping inflations: signs of rain, lightning, gusts, etc. Know when and how to stop what you’re doing. 4. DON’T REAC T TO EVENTS – DIRECT TH EM. T ake control of yourself, your situation, and your tasks. Don’t wait for events to happen; decide how you want your balloon to behave. T ell it what to do and do whatever is needed to
achieve that. Actively plan how flight safety will unfold at any stage of a flight sequence. 5. MANAGE WHAT YO U CAN’T CHANGE. Don’t be a victim of wind speed, sunrise and sunset times, late passengers, or hostile landowners. T ake control of these by managing how YOU handle them. Focus on making plans to manage these in advance. 6. PLAN FO R THE UNEXP ECTED, TH EN EXP EC T IT. Prepare yourself for emergencies: injuries, fuel fires, line strikes, difficult landings, etc. Develop proactive strategies, rehearse them, and be ready to use them at any moment. Relax but be ready. 7. ES TABLISH FLIGHT RO UTINES AT HO ME. Develop checklists and procedures that standardize your tasks, cut wasted efforts, and prevent forgetting or human error. Learn how your equipment (radios, tie-offs, fans, etc.) work at home on a rainy day with no launch field, pending flight, passenger, crowd, traffic, sponsor, or media pressure. 8. MAKE EVERY DECISIO N CO UNT. Every incident and accident chain begins with one small decision or indecision. Say something if you see something of concern. Your input is vital for flight safety. And when things go wrong, every Small-town, USA is instant global media material via satellite, internet, and camera phone. 9. REVIEW YO UR PERFO RMANCE. Make it a ritual – no excuses, no exceptions. Pros watch the films, and you can learn more from failures than successes. Continuous learning is more important than how well you perform at any single time. 10. YOU ARE IN CO MMAND! Forecasters, pilots, launch directors, the FAA, insurance providers, and first responders have their roles, but operationally your decisions and skills largely determine flight safety. T ake charge and play an active role in every aspect of your flight.
Knowing exactly what to do, when, and why will take time and experience. At first, your pilot and crew chief will instruct you carefully on every move you make and count on you to perform exactly as told. Follow the rules – they’re probably right. The more you crew, the more insight you’ll gain into why things are done how they are. You’ll also receive less verbal instruction with time. At some point (varies for everyone), reading cues from your pilot and balloon will replace verbal prompting. M istakes along this continuum are permitted and even expected. What’s important is that you keep learning until you’ve mastered every crewing position under any flight conditions and can instruct others to perform as well and safely. Be patient with your pilot, crew chief, other crew, and yourself – this is an ongoing process. Safety is truly a matter of attitude. Trouble will surely follow any signs of authority defiance, impulsiveness, invulnerability, machismo, or resignation – in pilots AND in crew. Before dismissing these as other people’s problems, realize that everyone behaves these ways to some degree from time to time. For a healthier outlook, consider repeating the same mistake over and over as a warning sign to unlearn and relearn some aspect of crewing. Risk is often more a function of knowledge, skill, and clarity than conditions or other factors. Clear thinking, proactive planning, and decisive action will keep you as safe as possible. Should you ever question, challenge, or break rules? As a rule, no. Accidents most often occur after one or more members of your flight team has broken one or more rules. M ost rules, however, have rare exceptions, and these may serve as fertile ground for creating new and better rules that offer more guidance and safety. For most crew, talking your ideas over with your pilot and crew chief is the best place to start. Pushing the boundaries or experimenting with new techniques is often best left to more seasoned balloonists and controlled conditions. Ballooning safety, however, has much
room for improvement, and no one – especially crew – should be discouraged in this pursuit. Not all pilots will agree with these rules or believe crew should take such an active and proactive approach to safety. But forces shaping this sport have moved crewing in this direction, and these trends are accelerating. M ore pilots allow and even expect crew to perform routine tasks once reserved exclusively for them: crew and passenger briefings, equipment layout, cold inflation, hot inflation, and pack-up. M any competition pilots and ride operators have streamlined their operations, improved their techniques/performance, and pushed ballooning forward by moving in this direction. You’ll crew for pilots who expect to do everything themselves and those who expect crew to do nearly everything but fly. While the pilot in command is legally and always responsible for the safe operation of the balloon, crew participate more in safety than ever before in ballooning history. Work within your pilot’s expectations, be ready to accept and master the next level of responsibility for flight safety, and most importantly – follow the rules!
