Welcome to the website for Balloons Aloft, Inc., Hot Air Balloon Rides. We love hot air ballooning! Read on and enjoy some pictures and information about the most fun you can have in a single afternoon or morning!
Balloons Aloft, Inc. is owned by Marty Pfenninger, a Commercial-Rated Hot Air Balloon and airplane Pilot, and his wife, Johanna. Marty has been an Instrument Rated fixed-wing (airplane) pilot for over 40 years, has been involved with ballooning for about 25 years, and is happiest when he is up in the air! All of our pilots are Commercial Hot Air Balloon-rated. The company is dedicated to bringing fun, exhilarating, and safe hot air balloon rides to our special clientele.
Flights last about an hour, and take place in beautiful Hunterdon County, NJ. We launch from Sky Manor Airport, Pittstown, NJ. The landscape is a combination of wooded areas, farmland, and beautiful villages and towns. The passengers aloft are treated to a serene, fantastic, sometimes dream-like panorama. The experience of floating aloft is unparalleled for the novice as well as the experienced passenger. You can give yourself over to the sensation of floating above the land and away from your daily worries and stress. See things from a different perspective-it's fun and stimulating and extraordinary all at the same time.
