About Us

We are THE premier hot air ballooning competition club.

Top Gun was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico which is the hot air balloon capital of the World.  The club was incorporated in 1984 as a 501 (c) 3 educational organization with the purpose of helping balloon pilots improve their skills through education and the sport of friendly competition.
