Meet Your Pilots
Born and raised in the world capital of ballooning (Albuquerque, NM), Cameron jumped in a basket at a very young age and received his pilot license at just 17 years of age. At 19, he was already a part of the Junior US National Team and participated at 2018 Junior World Championships. Considered as the most promising talent of the country, Cameron is enjoying flying in the Mojave Desert when he is not preparing for his next big hot air balloon competition.
Our French-born pilot comes from a ballooning family and experienced his first flight at only 3 years old. After being part of the 2008 Hot Air Balloon World Champion Team, he decided to fly balloons all over the world. Known for his flights above the Alps, the African Savanna, or the European forests, Jeff settled in the Mojave Desert where he has been our lead pilot since 2019.
After learning how to fly with his father in Indiana, Casey began his commercial carrer very young, and became the chief pilot at Vegas Balloon Rides in 2015. His impressive resume opened the doors to his dream job, flying above the savanna in Kenya. Now one of Africa’s most experienced pilots, Casey enjoy spending some time off with his former friends in this desert he loves so much.
You can say that ballooning runs in his blood. Matt’s dad, uncle and cousin are all balloon pilots. He loves spending his mornings in the air and sharing what he loves with people. He has flown balloons in 15 states and in Taiwan. Of all the places he has flown Dandridge, TN is his favorite place to fly so far.
