Balloons Over America is locally owned by Mark and Melissa Meyer, who reside in Moore County, North Carolina. Let's meet our pilot and crew members......
Mark Meyer loves to fly. His dreams of flying began as a child and now he is able to live his dream. He is an active duty Army pilot with 36 years of service, 31 years as
a pilot. He holds the highest FAA rating of Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) with several type certificates. Other commercial ratings include rotary wing (helicopters), fixed-wing (airplanes) and lighter-than air (hot-air balloons). Mark has over 8,000 hours of pilot-in-command time.
THE CREW CHIEF
Melissa (Missy) Meyer enjoys sharing the adventure of ballooning. She schedules flights and will answer all of your questions. She makes sure everyone is comfortable and flights run smoothly. She drives the chase van that will retrieve you and the balloon at the completion of the flight.
THE CREW (THE UNSUNG HEROS)
Bill and Becky Sisler joined by their kids, Jake, Pam, and Hannah are regular crew members. Armando Torres and his son, Alex are regular crew members, as well. They love keeping the balloons in the air and help in anyway they can.
As the balloon flies away, Alex Torres pretends to lift the balloon basket all on his own.
Amanda, Madison, and Max along with Morgan and her husband, Kevin Lohoefer (the kids) have loved crewing and flying with Mark (the Meyer's Dad). Some of their favorite memories include the different balloons and festivals they attended. Everyone's favorite will always be the Albuquerque Fiesta, which is the largest Hot Air Balloon Festival in the world and is held in New Mexico.
