If you are interested in participating as a pilot in the Red Rock Balloon Rally, please complete the NEW PILOTS info located here.

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.


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


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.
