Aurora Balloon Company has now merged into Genesee Falls Balloon! Welcome!
Ballooning started as a summer job crewing, and quickly became a lifelong passion. After obtaining a commercial LTA pilot's license we set out to share the joy and wonder a lighter than air experience holds. We have flown the Letchworth State Park and Genesee Falls region for over ten years sharing that experience with many.
Ballooning has always been a team family activity for us. Pilot and crew working together to complete wonderful flights for all to enjoy. On June 10th, 2016, tragedy struck our family when we lost my best friend, balloon buddy and colleague Ryan Almeter. He was killed while crewing for a different balloon company out of Letchworth. He was a great husband and father whose personality endeared him to everyone he met.
From our loss, we cherish the wonderful memories of Ryan and draw inspiration to make many more. Today we fly to honor his life and to continue to share hot air ballooning with others. We hope to fill your bucket list and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Genesee Falls area.
