Hello! I bet we aren’t alone in hoping for a more normal year. Some counties have been able to move forward, and so far, things are going the right direction as far as covid shutdowns are concerned. In the meantime, we are up and running (as always, weather permitting), with airline-based covid mitigation policies adjusted for our unique branch of aviation.
There are hand sanitizer pumps at out meeting site, on the inside of our van doors, and at our post-flight area. We spray down the vans and balloon baskets between flights. We have masks available for those who want them and didn’t bring their own. And until further notice, we have to pare down the post-flight celebration to just the traditional toast, from a one-time-use cup. We also may, if necessary, limit the number of passengers per flight. Rest assured that what hasn’t changed is our #1 priority, the safety of our passengers. This is simply an additional factor to be dealt with, added to the list of things we do to keep you safe like we have been, since 1978. Thank you for flying with us!
