About Dalma Császár

Dalma Császár was born in Budapest, Hungary, and after taking her first flight on a hot air balloon at the age of 10, she knew she wanted to pilot the big balloons. But in her early 20s, her hopes of receiving her pilot’s license were dashed after failing her eye exam. Undaunted, she underwent what was then still a pioneering procedure—laser eye surgery. After correcting her sight and with extensive training, Dalma became a certified hot air balloon pilot at the age of just 25. In a field dominated by men, she took the reins of a failing ballooning club, dedicating herself to the cause until it really took off. Today, Dalma is a hot air balloon instructor and her club is thriving. With over 40 members, they regularly participate in championships and international ballooning competitions, including one that broke a Guinness World Record. Of the six female balloon pilots in Hungary, four are members of Dalma’s club—another example of how she helps to lift people up.
