About Texas Air Adventures

Texas Air Adventures, LLC is a privately owned Houston, Texas based company that specializes in hot air balloon rides and flight training and marketing opportunities featuring hot air balloons.  Our goal is to provide a highly personalized service offering for those interested in the very best hot air ballooning experience.

About Our Offerings

Your time with us is all about YOU - your comfort, your lifestyle, and your well being.  We pride ourselves on delivering safe, stylish, and distinctive offerings that support YOUR special occasion.  In short, our focus in on creating/delivering great experiences for our discerning clientele.

About Our Clientele

Our clients are trendsetters, adventurers, romantics, and photo enthusiasts.  They are looking for a balloon ride experience instead of a balloon ride.  They are likely becoming engaged; celebrating a special engagement, anniversary, or birthday; exchanging their wedding vows OR just enjoying each other's presence.  They are fulfilling a dream.  They are engineers, artists, teachers, college students, sales persons, corporate executives or business owners.  They seem to enjoy travel, photography, fine dining and (many times) scuba diving.

About Our Chief Pilot

Our chief pilot was licensed by the FAA as a single engine fixed wing pilot shortly after his sixteenth birthday. He then went on to receive FAA ratings to fly gliders, multi-engine aircraft, and lighter-than-air balloons.  He is commercially rated as a single engine, multi engine, and lighter than air pilot.   And, he enjoys introducing others to the sport and art of ballooning.

About Our Balloon - "Chameleon"

Texas Air Adventures features a brand new Lindstrand 105 balloon named "Chameleon", so named because of her unique coloring which is different from every angle of view.

Chameleon's envelope weighs about 295 pounds (when dry) and flies with 105,000 cubic feet of air.  She is subject to annual "aircraft" inspections by an FAA certified repair station to ensure that she is air worthy. 

About Our "Dream Team" Crew

We fly with a volunteer crew dedicated to making your balloon ride experience very special.  These are all terrific folks and we can't wait for you to meet Joan, Beau, Jan, Susan, Chef Bob, Vie, Rusty, Nina and our junior balloonist team.  More About Crewing >>>

About Our Corporate Citizenship

Texas Air Adventures' charities of choice include the Red Cross, Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation, Diabetes Association, United Way, Make-A-Wish and programs advancing math,  science or aviation curriculums for children. 

We proudly served as the guest speaker for an evening meeting of the Thunderbird Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol Cadets to introduce them to the earliest form of aviation.
