Balloon Advertising

Advertising on a hot air balloon is a fantastic way to get exposure. Your name is as large as a freeway billboard and can be viewed by thousands of people in your market area.

Basket Jig

Here is a Jig that was used to weave the basket

Basket Jig

I built four corner basket frame "Jigs". I found it impossible to get the basket framework square and knew that I would need some extra guidance along they way. I used 26 gauge sheet metal and plywood. It took me a good part of a day to round up the supplies and build this jig but the effort was well worth it. This jig was also useful in keeping the horizontal lines level.

Did you know that all of our balloon rides are "private"?

We will not put other passengers in your balloon like other balloon operators.
