Dar Farzad has been involved with hot air balloons essentially his entire life. The hot air balloon bug started for him around age 3 when his mother brought him to a local hot air balloon event in his hometown of Binghamton, NY. This continued year after year until Dar got old enough to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot himself. At the age of 19 Dar got his pilot license and hasn’t looked back since. He has thousands of hours of commercial ballooning experience with flights all over the United States and Canada. Dar loves to fly and also loves sharing his passion/love of hot air ballooning with all his guests that he flies. Safety is always his top concern and with thousands of hours logged in balloons and attendance at numerous F.A.A. sanctioned safety seminars you can be assured that you have one of the safest pilots around providing you with an exceptional hot air balloon tour.
