My StarLite Balloon is a 90,000 cu/ft hot air balloon. I provide passenger rides over the orchards of the Santa Paula area.

I learned to fly and received my private pilot rating while living in Germany in 1986. I moved back to the U.S in 1988 and settled in So. Cal then bought my first balloon I called Krayola in 1990. I received my commercial pilot rating in 1990 and flew Krayola until 2003 when I sold it. I then bought my current balloon I call StarLite in 2010. We have enjoyed flying events all over the southwest including the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta for the last 7 years, the Lake Havasu Balloon Festival, Arizona, and the Great Reno Balloon Race in NV, just to name a few. But one of the prettiest places to fly is right here at home. Come join us for the fun and adventure!
