A message from Carroll Teitsworth regarding COVID-19:

President and Chief Pilot of Liberty Balloon Company & Balloons Over Letchworth

There are plenty of unknowns, but we want to give you assurance that we are still in business and are ready to start offering rides as soon as we are cleared to do so by the State of New York. At this point, our best understanding is that this will occur in Phase 4 of New York’s reopening.

We appreciate your business, and we look forward to seeing everyone once our flying season resumes.

In phone conversations, I’ve found myself assuring people that:

  • All our pilots and crew are healthy, and pulling at the bit, ready and anxious to get going again!
  • As an optimist, I pay attention to all the positives I hear…like potential medications, lowering fatality projections, new testing procedures, increasing availability of PPE and supplies.
  • We are an open air activity, and we don’t involve big crowds.
  • The Park and our other launch sites are open, and admission to the Park is free.
  • We have implemented numerous health and safety procedures to ensure the health of all of our passengers and crew.

School Assembly Programs

Liberty Balloon Company offers a unique educational program for elementary and secondary schools. Our assembly entitled “Up and Away with Hot Air Balloons!” combines the natural excitement of the balloon with a wealth of teaching experience.

Liberty Balloon Company offers flight training, balloon events and parties, corporate promotions, wedding packages—and we are one of the only balloon operations in the country whose pilots have extensive experience in all of these categories.

We’ve dropped skydivers and hang gliders from our balloons, bungee-jumped from the gondola, and flown over landmarks from Niagara Falls to the Rockies. We fly the Re/Max balloons for New York and New Jersey. We’ve had weddings in the gondola, given rides to multiple centenarians, and we have a flawless safety record.

So when you want a specialized hot-air balloon event, trust Liberty Balloon Company to host your experience!
