Colin Graham - Senior Pilot
Commercial Balloon, Commercial Instrument Multi Engine Airplane
Colin's ballooning journey began in 1986 when a local balloonist flew over his house in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Needing little encouragement, he took off after it and the rest is pretty much history. His parents found him a few hours later in a field pointing at the sky and yelling "Balloon!"
Okay, so that last bit is a little fictional, but you get the idea. He spent the next decade and a half yelling "balloon!", trying to inflate garbage bags with hair dryers, crewing for any pilot that would let him, and attending rallies.
In 1997, he began formal training as a pilot and earned his license two years later. In 2001, he opened Endeavor Ballooning after becoming a Federally Certified Commerical Pilot with balloon, airplane and instrument ratings. Since then he has logged over 3600 hours in the air flying throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, Thailand, New Zealand and Japan!
