During our 34 years in business, we have flown more than 150,000 passengers in complete comfort and security. That's more than 20 times the number of people our competitors have flown combined.

Since 1983, Balloon America has been Tucson's oldest, largest, and most experienced hot air balloon company. Our Chief Pilot and founder was a Fortune 100 corporate executive.

Our exclusive and amazing hot air balloon rides in Tucson, AZ, are the perfect way to get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains. We are the only company that follows this specific flight path, ensuring you are getting a true one-of-a-kind experience.

Our balloons are equipped with everything you need to make the trip truly special. We have a gondola-mounted camera fitted with a wide angle lens to capture you and your guests with the beautiful scenery in the background. All shots are in high definition, and the album is made digitally available to you immediately following the trip so you can easily share it with family and friends.

Additionally, we have a drone that records your balloon ride experience, starting from lift off and following us for a few minutes. This recording provides close-up video of the basket and wide-angle scenery shots. The video is then edited with title and music and delivered to you to share. This is a modern touch that is exclusive to our company.

Putting Your Safety First

When you are flying in a hot air balloon, much like any aircraft, safety should always be the top priority. That’s why when you choose to fly with us, you can trust that your safety is our primary concern. We are the only hot air balloon company in the southwestern United States that requires our pilots to maintain a first-class medical certification from the FAA. This is the same certification required to fly commercial airliners and ensures that our pilots are all in peak physical and mental condition to fly.

Additionally, all of our pilots have a 100% flawless flight record, never having a single accident or incident in their combined 6000 hours of flight time. We are also southern Arizona’s only balloon company certified A+ by the Better Business Bureau for our safety and customer experience record.
