Speaker, Ramon Seelbach, Balloonist
Lecture Title: Ballooning in and around the Truckee Meadows

Lecture:
Ramon Seelbach bought his new balloon in 1984 and flew it every year for the next 27 years. Most balloons last 6 to 8 years. This slide show covers all aspects of hot air ballooning including races, upkeep and maintenance.

Ramon has been flying balloons for more than 30 years, both locally and throughout the western United States. Although his balloon, “Up Early,” is no longer airworthy, he still uses it as a “walk in a balloon” at the Great Reno Balloon Race as well as at other venues locally. Learn the basics of ballooning and enjoy many of his adventures in balloons including a collection of over 200 special shape balloons from around the world.

Biography:
Ramon Seelbach is a commercial hot air balloon pilot with more than 30 years’ experience. He is retired from active flying now but is still active in the ballooning community.
