FAA Certified LTA Pilot since 1986

Rowena Massie has been involved in ballooning for 36 years.  Her parent Erma and David Woods started flying hot air balloons in 1981.  Rowena began flying in 1986.  Her Mom and Dad gave her the gift of flight! It was a precious and very spiritual gift.  She was born and raised in Hominy Valley but has flown in rallies all over the Southeast. She is a FAA LTA certified licensed pilot with an excellent safety record. 

Book a flight and enjoy the Asheville NC hotels!

When we fly:

We fly right after sunrise because that is the time of day the winds are the calmest.  We only fly in ideal weather conditions for ballooning.  The flight conditions are closely monitored by the pilot.  The day of the flight is when you will know if the weather is good for flight.
