Utah Hot Air Ballooning - ABOUT US / Why US

Skywalker Balloon Company, founded 1996 by Wilhelm "Will" Drummer. Will is from Vienna, Austria and came to visit friends in Utah in 1994. Stunned by Utah's beauty and the friendly people he decided to give up his corporate job and become a hot air balloon pilot. Simply because it is the most intense way to experience Utah's fantastic landscapes.

As a hard working and dedicated individual he has pioneered flying hot air balloons in many parts of Utah - Like Bryce Canyon, Goblin Valley, and the Swell.

Ballooning in Europe is for most part a very personal experience. In that tradition we get to know our passengers, and let them become part of the ballooning Aristocracy.

5) Donations: We are donating a considerable amount to charitable organizations. IVUmed, Habitat for Humanity Utah, the Special Olympics Polar Plunge, and many more. All Thanks to You.


The name SKYwalker comes from the unique way of being airborne and flying - the gondola remains stable in flight, and flying up a hill just a few feet above the ground gives you a feeling that can be compared to "taking a walk in the sky".

Park City Balloon FlightMission Statement - Will's passion and dedication is unsurpassed. He left his home country Austria, left family and friends behind and moved to Utah for the sole purpose of showing you how amazing Utah and ballooning is. After 17 years of flying, every single day is still a new adventure that puts a smile on his face and yours. Will loves to fly and has dedicated his life to provide you with the most intense, memorable, and safest way to experience this wonderful way of being airborne - WE ARE THERE FOR YOU!

Why You should come with us: As a family owned business, and a chief pilot from Europe, we are dedicated to give you the absolute best ballooning experience possible. Smaller balloons and smaller groups enable us to adjust to each individuals personal needs and desires. A typical European style after flight celebration gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better, exchange stories, and share our memories. We are fully insured, FAA certified, and all our commercial pilots have a perfect safety record.
