The Willamette Aerostat Society (WAS) is a non-profit organization for anyone interested in learning about, participating in and improving the sport of hot air ballooning. While WAS is based in Oregon’s Willamette Valley we have members from a wide geographical area. Pilots, crew and general enthusiasts are all welcome to join WAS. We are an all-volunteer organization.
General meetings are held in the late fall, winter and early spring months. Check the calendar page to find information on upcoming events.
