Belgium’s Balloon Platoon housed at the Schaffen Training Centre have been using Airborne Industries Parachute Training Balloons for over 40 years. Find out more about how Schaffen Training Centre reduced the costs of parachute training in our Case Study.
Patrick Potloot, Adjudant-Majoor of the Belgium’s Balloon Platoon stated that “To us the use of the balloon makes obvious sense. The cost of using the ballon is a fraction of the cost of using an aircraft. For every six Euros spent on balloon training we would pay 300 Euros for using an aircraft. Also, the balloon is housed here, it is central, easily accessible and allows everyone to come here for the training”.
