About Aurora Balloon Company

Hello! I am Mark Gietler, Owner and Chief Pilot of the Aurora Balloon Company. I was born and raised in West Seneca, NY and went to college here. I was given the very special gift of my first Balloon ride in the fall of 2000. It so impressed me that I began flight lessons two weeks after that first flight.

Since that time I first became a Private then a Commercially rated Pilot and Flight Instructor. I started the Aurora Balloon Company in November of 2001.

We have had the privilege of sharing this memory making experience with hundreds of passengers. Many have become repeat guests in our balloons and some have even started the next part of their life in our balloon by proposing marriage in the air!! So far we have a 100% YES rate for proposals!!

We currently fly the Cricket Wireless Balloon and The McKinley Mall Balloon. You may have seen one of our balloons in the local papers. The Balloon really makes for some nice pictures as we fly over this scenic Western New York.

We often tether the balloon for company picnics or help with fund raisers for various noteworthy causes. We also offer a fun and educational school assembly program that is sure to thrill students of all ages.

We invite you come enjoy this wonderful experience with someone you care about or come out and treat yourself to a great evening (or morning) of fun!!
