For nearly three decades, Stan Hess and The United States Hot Air Balloon Team have been committed to offering passengers the most memorable, safe and entertaining hot air ballooning experiences in America.
Their goal is to provide a world-class leisure activity, safely and consistently. The success of this 30-year dream has been enjoyed by tens of thousands of friends, family members and travelers from every corner of the world.
USHAB pilots are all FAA Commercially approved, drug tested, and with more than 10,000 hours of combined experience, are dedicated to their profession, setting the standard in safety and passenger service.
Locally, in Pennsylvania, The USHAB Team is the area’s genuine hot air ballooning service, fully staffed with their own experienced pilots who take you up in their own balloons. They will manage, guide, and direct your entire experience from booking through the champagne toast at the end of your flight.
Air Ventures is a female-owned and operated company. Their team consists of three full-time and part-time office staff, three full-time pilots, four part-time pilots, and an active recovery crew of twenty. Three state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line (gorgeous) balloons and, of course, three recovery vehicles are part of their team.
