Liberty Balloon Company was founded in 1976 by former US Navy aviator Carroll Teitsworth. Carroll is still the hub around which the business turns, but we have grown to a family-operated, full time, exclusive hot air balloon company offering rides over Letchworth State Park and the Finger Lakes Region. We schedule by reservation only, and always morning or evening. We take safety seriously; so we fly only when the weather permits and the wind is calm. We fly "small" balloons that have capacity for up to four in one balloon; but we can accommodate up to eight with two balloons. We also offer a several flight packages for those looking for an even more exclusive experience. Join us for your own hot air balloon adventure; we look forward to meeting and flying with you!

The balloon ride was a wonderful experience. The pilot was informative and explained the various aspects of ballooning without getting too bogged down in jargon. The ride was fun as the pilot showed us just how fast the balloon could climb - just as we...More
