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.

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."
