October 1, 2021 – With Balloon Fiesta just around the corner, this is the time of year when eyes are drawn upward to our beautiful fall skies. But, the safety and oversight of the ballooning community is also drawing plenty of attention as a National Transportation Safety Board investigation continues into a deadly crash last summer. Senior Producer Matt Grubs talks with the founder of a local balloon tour company, Rainbow Ryders, about what changes he’d like to see and why some companies choose to monitor their pilots more closely than the industry requires.
Host: Matt Grubs, NMiF senior producer
Line Panel: Scott Appelman, President & CEO, Rainbow Ryders
