The Willamette Aerostat Society (WAS) is a group of pilots, crewmembers, and families who enjoy the sport of hot air ballooning. Membership is open to the general public.

We are based in Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley, but we have members from a large geographical area. Our flying season usually runs from June to October.

Please plan on attending the next WAS meeting on Saturday, May 12, 2018, 1:00 PM at the Aurora Jet Center, 14357 Keil Rd. NE, Aurora, Oregon. It’s a potluck, so please bring a dish to share. 

Join the fun and learn more about the oldest form of flight. Click over to the “Join Us” page to find a membership application.

The current edition of the WAS newsletter can be found on the “AeroStats” page.
