"This was an 80th birthday gift to my husband Gary from our children and me. The ride had to be postponed for almost 6 weeks but the day of the flight was absolutely perfect. Light winds and cool for August. David is a great pilot who also gave us a bit of history of the area around San Marcus. Seeing the sunrise over the hills was amazing! David and Robert hosted a reverential champagne toast to ballooning that was inspiring. A very nice touch. Thank you both for the assistance in getting on board. "

"My husband is a quadriplegic and David was so wonderful in getting him in the balloon and taking him on a flight and having a perfect landing. He is one of the best pilots I’ve ever known. My husband has not stopped talking about his experience. Thank you so much!"

"Austin Aeronauts provides top notch service. Dave helped us schedule our Hot Air Balloon Ride and Josh was a very proficient pilot. This has been on my bucket list for a very long time and they made it very special for me and the other passengers. I felt very safe during the whole experience. We were able to view the sunrise from the balloon and floated very peacefully over Round Rock. The champagne toast on the ground at the end of the ride was such a nice touch. I highly recommend them!!"

"We tried to fly many times, and we were disappointed each time we were told the weather just wouldn’t permit it. BUT, TODAY WAS PERFECT. You guys watch the weather so closely to make sure the ride was worthwhile, and it definitely was. We had an amazing time! It was such a wonderful morning and everyone at Austin Aeronauts was so kind and welcoming. It was a flight of a lifetime, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you Josh for flying us!"

"Flying with David of the Austin Aeronauts Hot Air Balloon and his flight crew is a fabulous experience. This is my second time. My first time was over 12 years ago, and I'm looking forward to my next flight. The view was amazing. David is a confident and safe pilot with lots of professional training and experience. At the end of the trip, they performed a celebration ceremony to highlight our flight experience."
