Our mission

The SBA and our members strive to promote STEM education, research and best practices in High Altitude Ballooning

Promote best practices

The SBA encourages and promotes that those conducting high altitude balloon flights do so with safety in mind. Proper coordination with local officials and the FAA are key to a successful flight.

Promote research and networking

Thousands of scientists and engineers work together to conduct research at altitudes of 100,000 ft (30 km) and higher. This research is then peer reviewed and discussed through our annual conference and Journal of High Altitude Ballooning.

Promote STEM Education

The SBA promotes STEM education through high altitude balloon activities. We believe that high altitude ballooning is a great way to encourage students to get involved in STEM and to explore our world.
