Please tell me that you have to have a license to operate a hot-air balloon.  And that either the FAA or the state of California will be yanking said license of this dipshiat.

You have to have an FAA license & certification to be a balloon pilot.

That said, balloons don't have a lot of directional control, they use the winds at different elevations to move to (approximately) where they want to go.

I've crewed & been up, I'm here to tell ya, balloonists know how to party :D

NEVER ride in a "party" balloon, the ones that hold 10-12 people, they have the worst safety record.

Also, they are harder to insure for the balloonists and really too much work for the crew. Same as all the shaped balloons ive worked on. 800 pounds and more for the fabric and the bag alone!

Yep.

csb: Back in the late 80s I played at the Balloon Glow at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (largest gathering of hot air balloons in the world) & the Early Times Whiskey balloon was there.
They put a case of Early Times on the stage for us. I don't remember getting home.
