Operational rules for balloons

The EASA Committee of the European Commission met on 28-29 June and voted positively to introduce the first part of the Balloon Regulation, namely Balloon Air Operations.

The new regulation is expected to be published and become European law either in late 2017 or early 2018.  However, it will not enter into force until 8 April 2019, with compliance being mandatory by 8 October 2019.

More information about future European operating rules for balloons is available on our website.
