For those of you that are still flying Thunder & Colt balloons. Are your tanks coming up on the 25 year life limit (built in 1985 or before) as specified in Cameron Ltd. Instructions for Continued Airworthiness? We have a solution. We have been working on this problem with the FAA for over a year now. A new maintenance ruling is out that allows you to continue using the T&C stainless steel tanks. The final ruling is covered under Type Certificates B2EU, Rev 19 & B3EU, Rev 16. Note 3 - maintenance and Inspection of both Type Certificates specifies the proper maintenance manual with which you MUST comply.

If you are flying a British or other registered balloon (not covered by B2EU or B3EU) the Cameron Balloons Ltd Maintenance Manual and the 25 year life limits still apply.

If you have any questions please feel free to call at (903) 297-0003.

Keeping them flying since 1982. Guy Gauthier
