Flights Resuming in 2023

We're taking off the remainder of the year to welcome our newest crew member to the Star Ballooning family! We'll resume flights starting in April of 2023. Please email us to book!

Gift certificates will still be available this holiday season. Email us for more information!



Star Ballooning is a small family-run business based out of Bridgewater, VA in the Shenandoah Valley.  We fly for the love of this sport and put safety & customer service above all else. Every flight is an opportunity to offer an unforgettable experience for our passengers. 





We offer private or shared hot air balloon rides for up to 4 passengers in the Shenandoah Valley, VA and at different festivals throughout the year. 


Tethers are a fantastic way to please a crowd, whatever the occasion.  A hot air balloon will leave guests talking about it for years to come.

In-Flight Photo


We offer a complimentary in-flight photo with a mounted GoPro camera. A unique experience requires a unique photo!

Proposal Flights

Start a lifetime of adventure with a sunrise proposal flight over the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We'll bring the bubbly!



Safety is priority #1 and we pride ourselves in our 100% safety record. 

We're Small!

We're not one of the large ride companies flying 10-15 passengers in the basket. Our small operation makes for a more personal in-flight experience. 


"We had a great trip. Mark was an excellent pilot and he did a great job of explaining everything to us and helping us to enjoy the trip. We would highly recommend this service."
