The Red Rock Balloon Rally is an invitation only event. Each year we send out invitations to the previous years pilots. New pilots may apply to attend, but the decision to allow a new pilot to fly is made by the Red Rock Balloon Rally Association.
Pilot applications are sent via email. The deadline for returning the hard copy of the application is October 15, 2021.
If you do not receive your application as a returning pilot, please contact the Red Rock Balloon Rally Association at:
Please include "Returning pilot application" in the subject line
If you are a pilot that would like to receive an application:
Please include "New pilot" in the subject line
Note that receiving an application does not guarantee your entry until reviewed by the Red Rock Balloon Rally Association. It must include references from currently licensed pilots, your number of hours, and a picture of your balloon.
May the winds welcome you with softness.
May the sun bless you with its warm hands.
May you fly so high and so well that God
joins you in laughter and sets you gently
back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
