RE/MAX school presentations introduce students to the basics of thermodynamics and the wonders of ballooning, mankind's earliest form of flight. Here you see the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon pilot giving school children a look inside.
The RE/MAX balloon is essentially an amazing eight story billboard which we can assemble and inflate,
on-site wherever we need it, and whenever we need to have it there. Imagine this magnificent aircraft
at your neighborhood school, effortlessly hanging in the gentle breeze and bringing joy and wonder, and
providing an incredible educational experience to children aged 5 to 105.
Our knowledgable and entertaining RE/MAX pilot gathers and welcomes the crowd, then explains the history and science of mankind’s first successful flying machine.
The RE/MAX® hot air balloon is easily the most recognized symbol in real estate and one of the most instantly recognized corporate logos in the world. The Northern California RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon travels annually to charity and sporting events, office openings, balloon festivals and schools from as far south as the central valley city of Fresno all the way to the Oregon border.
Today RE/MAX has the largest balloon fleet in the world, with more than 100 hot air balloons. It all began in 1978, when a group of RE/MAX agents in New Mexico were trying to get attention for their fledgling company. They entered a red-over-white balloon in the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, using the “Above the Crowd!®” phrase on their jackets. Their marketing was so successful that the entire company soon adopted the concept, and now the average RE/MAX balloon makes 65 appearances per year in bringing our message of leadership, independence, and superior customer service home to consumers.
The RE/MAX Hot-Air Balloon is available on a reserve-basis to visit your town, bringing smiles
and cheers to your friends, neighbors, and customers. Balloon appearances should generally be
scheduled for morning or evening hours, when winds are calm, in a large, open space (150′ X 150′)
free of overhead obstacles and power lines.
RE/MAX Ballooning - Northern California can also provide promotional materials, press release templates, a balloon program brochure, parent invitation flyers and more to help with creating this spectacle in your school.
