Chase a Hot Air Balloon


25 per session

Looking for something to do right around sunrise or sunset any given beautiful day? I need crew to chase my hot air balloon, without crew I simply cannot fly.

Meet me and my experienced crew about an hour before sunrise or about 2 hours before sunset, we'll have a pre-flight briefing, I'll go over various safety practices and we'll head to the launch site (you leave your vehicle at the meeting spot). Follow instructions to assemble and inflate the balloon. I take off and you remain on the ground chasing after my balloon in my vehicle. After about an hour of flight I'll land somewhere vehicle accessible, you meet me and we disassemble the aircraft, pack it up and head back to the meeting site. Roughly a 3hr event from meeting to drop off.

- Valid drivers license
- Closed toed shoes
- Ability to lift/maneuver semi-heavy objects for short periods of time
- Gloves
- Cotton / Non-synthetic clothing
- Love of being outside
- About 3 hours of your time
- Use of a handheld radio

- Ability to drive/back up a trailer is a BIG plus but not mandatory
- Sense of direction
- Sense of urgency / ability to react quickly
- Game face

We fly year round but passengers only enjoy Spring/Summer/Fall seasons. Winter is the perfect season for pilot training.

We work hard and we play hard. There's a time and place for goofy, while there are many opportunities for fun/goofy in this sport this is a serious event. Safety is #1.

Family friendly! Bring the kids!

Weather dependent! Weather on the ground may NOT be the same as the weather in the air. Cancelling and/or rescheduling flights within hours or minutes of actual flight will occur from time to time.

Training & Qualifications

I am a hot air balloon pilot and have been crew for various companies throughout the country for the past 5 years.

Availability & Preferences

Sunrise and Sunset any given day pending weather cooperation.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Theodore Gransbury

I'm a fairly handy person to have around. I do all sorts of things to keep myself learning, meeting new people and going new places. I enjoy craft beer, being outside, talking to people, teaching new ...skills, walking my dog and camping in my hammock. If you're willing to wake up early and stay up late I've got some cool experiences for you. Sunrise and sunset are my favorite times of day... beautiful and I get to fly my hot air balloon. Wanna build a bonfire, enjoy a beer and have random conversations?show more
