The balloon sport organisation is the Ballooning Committee of the Hungarian Aeronautical Association in our country. The international organisation is the Commission Internationale Aerostation of Federation Aeronautique Internationale (CIA FAI).
The sport fliers worked in Hungarian Defence Organisation before 1990. This organisation admitted the balloon sport at 1978. More and more balloon clubs were established after at this time. The Ballooning Committee wrote up and published the rules on the strength of foreign experiments. The first National Championship organised by committee at 1980 already.
The balloonists are the pilots, theirs crew members, the competition's officials and observers. They are a big family whom hold together the fondness of ballooning from all over the world.
