Kurt has been a Professional International Corporate Pilot for over 25 years. With a passion for flight he took up hot air ballooning as his favorite hobby. Now he enjoys taking families, couples and kids on a custom, personalized hot air balloon ride. Give Kurt a call to learn how you can take to the sky with Velocity Ballooning.
We had the most AWESOME time riding in the sky with Kurt. We felt comfortable, had all procedures explained, got to learn some cool tidbits of information about navigating the air.
Best of all, our band got to record a music video thanks to our pilot. We landed next to a pecan grove and had a ton of laughs.
Easy 5 stars!
