Flying the Finger Lakes for 40 years

We’re a family business, ballooning together since 1977. We love to fly, and we love working together. When you fly with us, we treat you like part of the family too.

Three balloons launching simultaneously

FLYING SEASON IS HERE!

Our 2021 flying season is in full swing! We’ve already been in the air a handful of times this season, and are looking forward to many more beautiful flights as the weather continues to improve. 

WE’RE A FAMILY BUSINESS

Captain Carroll Teitsworth, Chief Pilot of Liberty Balloon Company started the business in 1977. He is now joined by his sons Lance and Lee as pilots, while daughter Lisa manages the office.

Well, most of our season is done for 2020. We got a late start flying because of the lockdown and restrictions - but we were still able to fly and help people make the most of this challenging year by making memories - despite the restrictions. We are thankful to everyone who chose to ride with us. Thank you to all of you who support us locally and from afar. God willing we will be fully back up and running in 2021. If you are looking for a fun gift to give during the Holidays, we sell gift certificates! Contact us for more information at office@libertyballoon.com or call our office at (585)243-3178.

Happy Monday! This November warmth has been most welcome and we loved that we were able to squeak in a handful of flights this past weekend! Be sure to take a moment to get out and soak up the last few days of warmth before the cold begins to set in for good!

We have been dazzled by the many views the Finger Lakes have to offer. This was from our flight near Keuka Lake recently! Simply spectacular!

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!
