Pilot Art's Story

The Best Hot Air Balloon Rides in AlbuquerqueOriginally from Texas, Art saw a hot air balloon for the first time at the age of 16 while digging a garden, and thought, "that would be a lot better job than this." From that point forward he became fascinated and intrigued by the thought of one day flying his very own hot air balloon. Fast forward five years and he found himself in Albuquerque, walking across Balloon Fiesta Field in 1997, when he was asked by a pilot if he could give them a hand. After working with her for a week, Art fell in love with the sport and got a job as crew chief for a local ride company. After years of crewing and saving he bought a balloon and began gathering flight hours throughout the US and Canada, and finally received his commercial license in 2006. So far he has had the opportunity to fly in Mexico, US, Canada, and Eastern Europe.


These adventures have given Art the experience needed to share his passion for the sport of hot air ballooning with others. Every single hot air balloon ride that he has had the pleasure of sharing with others has not only been a unique and memorable experience, but most of all fun. Art loves seeing the amazement and awe that is shared among his passengers when experiencing that first hot air balloon ride. That alone is one of the many reasons Art loves what he does, because he gets to share it with you.

What people are saying about Art and his Hot Air Balloon Rides

"Recent birthday gift certificate balloon ride for two from my sister and her family. Starting with reservations, the release, the meeting information all very organized and helpful. Confirmation text the evening before flight. Art and his crew are awesome, and made the whole experience so much fun my husband is planning the next trip already. The group we went up with was a diverse group from all over, all friendly. Finished with sparkling wine and snacks at the Bosque before being returned to our cars. The crew even gave us the name of the diner we had been searching for (my husband's dream chicken fried steak found there). So much fun would absolutely recommend this and plan to do it again."

"Went to Albuquerque this Labor Day weekend. First time on a hot air balloon. The entire experience was simply amazing. Art and his crew were awesome and they made sure we had a good time. Art did a great job flying us and giving us good information while we were up. The landing was another cool experience, we landed in a neighborhood! Art and his crew included the guests to help them with the initial setup and packing up of the equipment, which the guests did willingly. The organizers took us to a park after the activity for a small breakfast and mimosas! That was a surprise. Will definitely come back again with my parents next year."
