It all began in the summer of 2020 when Chief Pilot Derek received his flight training in the Rocky Mountains of Southern Utah. “Flying is my passion and I love sharing that with my passengers, whether it’s their first balloon ride or they’ve been on a few flights,” Derek shares. They look forward to sharing the skies with you.

Bigfoot Balloons is owned and operated by Jake Thomas and Shannon Tuck. It was established in the far-eastern corner of Tennessee, in Chattanooga. Flying high above the Appalachian Mountains had began as a hobby soon turned into a passion. The passion gave birth to the ‘Chattanooga Balloon Company,' but the name changed when they relocated to Park City, UT. Though they are still wholeheartedly passionate about flying, they believe that ballooning is only worth doing if they are continually being inspired by the new people and places that they fly with. This idea of moving and traveling with the balloon has directed and carried them all the way across the country.Today, they are Bigfoot Balloons of Park City, floating around the Wasatch mountains. They hope to share the Salt Lake City sky with you on a balloon ride!
