Who we are:
A club of hot air balloon enthusiasts. Our organization is called the Pacific Coast Aeronauts (PCA) because most of our 100+ members live in the San Francisco Bay Area, though some live as far away as Texas and Connecticut. The club was founded in 1989 and is a nonprofit corporation.
What we do:
We fly or float above it all at various locales around the West Coast. You can find several of our members flying any fair weather weekend from our launch site in Morgan Hill (San Pedro & Condit) or from the Tracy Airport. We have monthly meetings featuring guest speakers and lively discussions about the fun and challenges of ballooning. We also sponsor and organize balloon events and safety seminars.
Why we do it:
Our ballooning club's purpose is to:
Provide people interested in ballooning a forum to share information about balloon safety, flying area updates, and Federal Air Regulations changes. Promote great land owner relations and support the local communities. Educate the community about ballooning. Have good times with safe and soft landings every flight!
