Join The WindDancer Balloon Team

Crew Members Wanted

Join the WindDancer Balloon Chase Crew!!

An incredible experience that will put YOU in the center of the ballooning action!

Help get the balloon unpacked, inflated and off the ground on its adventure. Jump into the chase van and navigate the roads while communicating with the pilot; follow that balloon! Help the pilot identify potential landing locations. Once the balloon lands the crew helps deflate and pack up the balloon.

The schedule is up to you! Join our crew team and get notified when flights are scheduled. Sign up to assist with flights when you are available.

Flights are scheduled any and all days of the week. Most flights are at sunrise; occasionally we will have a flight just before sunset. The entire experience lasts about 3 hours.

Flights are typically within 20 miles of Waukesha. Most crew will meet at the WindDancer Balloon Headquarters (Pine Hollow Ct. Waukesha) and take the chase van from there.

As an essential part of a hot air balloon flight, the crew is required to be reliable, responsible, and punctual and above all… LOVE to have fun!

Crew is asked to wear gloved, long pants and sturdy shoes. Occasionally a balloon will need to be taken out of rough or overgrown terrain.
 This is a volunteer opportunity.
Earn crew credits each time you help. Stick around long enough and your family/friends might get to go for a flight too.  


“I have found that the thrill of the chase can be as much, if not more fun than flying. It is amazing to see the fabric come out of the bag, inflate into a huge balloon and take off into flight. Being part of the entire experience from start to finish is a great feeling.”
