HOT AIR BALLOON RELEASE OF LIABILITY & ASSUMPTION OF RISK

I hereby acknowledge that I have VOLUNTARILY applied to participate in hot air ballooning activities.

I understand and I am aware that hot air ballooning is a hazardous activity. I understand that hot air ballooning and the use of ballooning equipment involves a risk of injury or death and that there is a possibility that I could be injured or killed while participating in this activity. I also understand that the property upon which the take-off or landing of the balloon is to occur may not be in a safe condition.

I hereby agree to, and expressly assume any and all risk of injury or death while hot air ballooning, whether during the preparation, take-off, flight, landing or travel to or from the take-off or landing areas, including ground transportation.

I recognize that the pilot of the balloon is in full and complete charge and control of the balloon and is solely responsible for all decisions made concerning all things or persons in or connected with the balloon on the ground or in the air.

I hereby irrevocably release Aeronaut Industries, Inc., its employees, agents, successors, heirs, assigns, affiliates and legal representatives [“Released Parties”] from all claims, rights, demands or actions which I or my successors, heirs or assigns may have against the Released Parties in connection with the ballooning activities. I agree not to make a claim against or sue the Released Parties for injuries, death or property damages relating to the ballooning activities and/or the use of the balloon equipment, even if any injury, death or damage is caused to me or my property is due to the negligence of the Released Parties or the dangerous condition of any property upon which the ballooning activities may take place.

I further understand and agree that this release extends to all claims of every nature and kind whatsoever, known, unknown, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of the ballooning activities and I hereby expressly waive all rights under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code regarding such claims. Section 1542 states:

"A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if know to him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

I hereby agree to and accept the terms and conditions of this Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement. This Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement constitutes the final and entire agreement between the Released Parties and the undersigned concerning this subject matter.

In the event of litigation with respect to the ballooning activities or this agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney fees and the costs of litigation.

I certify that I am eighteen (18) years of age or older and that the person listed above has no medical or mental illness.

By filling out the form below, you hereby acknowledge that you and all of the passengers listed have carefully read the instructions, fees, and conditions and the Release and fully understand them. We must receive this form prior to adding you to our flight schedule.
