Montgolfier Ballooning Diploma

    The Montgolfier Diploma was created in 1960. The first two years several diplomas were awarded for performance or contributions to the sport in the years before 1960. From 1972, two diplomas were available each year. One for an outstanding performance and one for contribution to the development of the sport of ballooning in general. After 1975, two performance diplomas were available, one for gas and one for hot air balloonists. A third performance diploma, for Rozier balloon pilots, became available, from 1992.
