Chris Healy - Ballooning in NY

Hi!  My name is Chris Healy and Above the Clouds is my company.  I hope you are enjoying the web site.  I've been a professional balloonist since 1986.   I've flown in California, New Mexico and most of the Northeast.  A few times each year, we pack up the whole operation and go to balloon festivals.  It's always nice to fly in a new area, but there's no place like home.  The rolling green hills and lush farmland of Orange County, NY are a sight to behold.  If I'm not ballooning, you might find me buzzing along in a small airplane.  I added my fixed wing (airplane) rating to my license in 1996.  What can I say, I love to fly!  And you'll love flying with me!
