Dear Mr. Peterson:

I spent many a weekend chasing hot air balloon shows as a teenager. Today I am an experienced balloon pilot looking for full-time employment in this field. I am accomplished in the air as well as on the ground, displaying, discussing and exhibiting the operation of hot air balloons and keeping other balloon pilots abreast of new equipment and technology. In addition I am a member in good standing of the Balloon Federation of America, having served as president from 200-2001. I am also an FAA licensed pilot.

After seeing your posting for experienced balloon pilots on JobBankUSA.com, I decided to apply for the job. May I meet with you in person to discuss this position? Please call me at 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter.
