Taylor Aldous

Chief Pilot/CEO

In 1996 at the age of 11, a family friend brought Taylor on a hot air balloon flight over Scottsdale; this was the beginning of his passion for hot air ballooning. Due to the FAA minimum age requirements for the stages of ratings, Taylor had time to perfect his skill.  At age 14, he began flight training and by age 16 Taylor earned his private flight rating. From that time, he began competing in various hot air balloon events across the US. Two years later, he earned his commercial pilot rating and his career began to soar. Flying over 18,000 passengers in more than 36 states – Taylor has also flown balloons for Dodge, Wendy’s, RE/MAX and Sanderson Volvo.  Attending college, he received his degree in Science and Aviation Technology and his private and instrument fixed wing ratings from the University of Central Missouri. Taylor began his career in the Valley of the Sun and has reached new heights in establishing Arizona Balloons Inc. in 2016.
