Chris Dunkley became involved in ballooning in the early 1980s. He worked as a commercial balloon pilot and became a BBAC approved Balloon Inspector, a BBAC approved instructor and also a BBAC balloon examiner. Chris also set up his own balloon repair station in the mid 1980’s. In 1996 Chris was heavily involved in the production of the video ‘The Complete Countryside Guide’ aimed at balloon pilots and took a starring role as presenter. This video still remains relevant today. Chris has been responsible for producing a large number of technical & information documents on behalf of the BBAC and has been Chairman of the BBAC Technical Committee since the late 1990’s, managing to convert dry, legalese into a form that is understandable to all.
