It has never been easier for Aerostar owners to install new Lindstrand envelopes over their existing Aerostar bottom ends. With the Lindstrand Balloons STC you can now install complete Aerostar bottom ends under many sizes of Lindstrand envelopes with just a logbook entry. The flight manual supplement contains a grid of allowable bottom ends. There is a chart showing each model and its approved lower ends, along with the new certified gross weight for the system determined by the Aerostar components.
You can install the Aerostar components with a logbook entry provided you have the complete Lindstrand flight manual supplement in your manual, and a copy of the STC. Contact your Lindstrand Balloons Dealer or the Factory at LBUSA@aol.com or 815-777-6006 for further information.

Just a reminder our UPS pick-up is approximately 3:00 pm (CST). Our goal is to send out shop orders the day we receive them. So please keep in mind that in addition to gathering the parts, and sometimes cutting a fabric panel, we must prepare the proper paperwork and invoice to be included in the shipment. To assure our ability to help you, please call no later than 1:00 pm (CST) to place your order.
Have you called our factory on a Friday only to find an answering machine instead of a friendly greeting from Cassie? Last year as gas prices were rising, our employees suggested we try 4 10-hour workdays, Monday thru Thursday. It has worked out so well that we’ve kept those hours and although some of us still put in extra hours on Friday, we are usually only here until noon (unless we’re headed to a balloon event!). We continue to check our e-mail daily, so if you’ve missed us on the phone on a Friday, you can always send an email message.
