Most of the guests on SimpleFlight radio have demonstrated a commitment to general aviation via their experience and love for fixed or rotary wing aircraft. This week's guest, Alan Zielinski, has done that, but also adds a very special aspect by spending a lot of time in lighter than air "free" balloons. And he's taken it even further by bringing other pilots to the lighter than air world by being both a CFI and Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) for the unique world of flying hot air balloons.
With 35 years and over 10,000 hours of accident free flying, Alan serves as a mentor for many and an example for all on how to get the most out of aviation. Click and listen to get a peek into his world and understand what the world looks like from "the basket". As the song goes..... Up, Up, And Away, in my beautiful balloon!!!
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we love talking to others who share our passion for aviation. Please subscribe to the Podcast via iTunes or your favorite broadcast source, and rate, review, and let us know what you think!
