The Lighter-Than-Air Society is a not-for-profit organization whose members are devoted to the study of the history, science, and techniques of all forms of buoyant flight. Individually and as a group, members believe in the advantages that lighter-than-air vehicles (balloons and airships) have in many transportation, promotional, sport, scientific and defense applications.

The LTA Society began in 1952 as a employee activity of the Goodyear firm. Over the years, membership grew beyond the company, and the L-T-A society incorporated as a separate entity in 1975. Today, with membership open to the public, nearly 1000 members of all ages share their common interest in lighter-than-air flight.

Membership in the L-T-A Society is not only educational – it’s fun! To participate, visit our Membership Application page.
