The Australian Ballooning Federation administers recreational ballooning to standards approved by CASA. This includes the training, checking and certification of private (non commercial) balloon pilots. We are a members organisation with a breadth and depth of expertise across our membership second to none.
ABF works to promote the sport of ballooning for the enjoyment of our members and other ballooning enthusiasts. We are affiliated with the Australian Sport Aviation Confederation and the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale. ABF pilots regularly and successfully represent Australia internationally.
The ABF is not responsible for commercial, passenger carrying ballooning in Australia as that responsibility resides directly with CASA. If you want to pay for a balloon flight, please contact a commercial ballooning company in your area. We have a list of many of the commercial ballooning companies around Australia on our links page.
