Welcome to the official website of the
Iowa Balloonist Association
The IBA is Iowa's largest balloon club and hosts what may very well be the Midwest's largest safety seminar. On this site you will be able to find information on membership and the IBA's Continuing Education Seminar. In the near future we will be adding more sections to the website, hopefully these will include a list of commercial pilots who can be contacted for pilot training or passenger rides. Until then look around the site and if you have any feedback on how to make the site better, email your ideas to our webmaster by clicking the envelope in the upper right corner.
