Comments received about our Co-Owner/Chief Pilot David Wakefield:

Bryan Souza - Broker Associate at RE/MAX Gold

I have known Dave for many years. His degree of professionalism is un-matched and he is truly above the crowd. Each event his has been a part of: Clovis Fest, Race for the Cure, and RE/MAX events, he has been consistent in interacting positively with others and always draws a smiling crowd. He is welcoming and informative about ballooning to riders and onlookers alike. I would highly recommend Dave to any corporation considering using a balloon for advertising and marketing.

I have had the pleasure to work with David from October of 2004 until April of 2012. As our balloon pilot, he was reliable, pleasant, professional, personable and punctual. His communication skills are prompt, courteous and concise. He works exceptionally well at Children's events. Once a year, I would hire David to work the "Up with Kids " event in Paso Robles, CA. The highlight of the day for the children was the tethered balloon ride. Not only was everything safely done, but his interaction with the kids could not have been more fun. His dedication and performance for RE/MAX was exceptional and I highly recommend anyone that is thinking of hiring a balloon pilot to strongly consider David. They do not get better than David.

Judy Tait - Account/Operations Manager at RE/MAX Central Santa Rosa

David Wakefield is a fantastic balloonist. Every event that we both have attended David was there early morning, right on time to get the balloon up. He is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone that would like to go up in a balloon. What a ride! You will never forget the experience.

Robert Locklin - Business Instructor, Institute of Technology

Dave Wakefield is one of the most organized pilots I have flown or worked with. His love of ballooning shows through his professionalism as a pilot and as an event organizer. I highly recommend Dave, and look forward to flying with him again in the near future.

Treasa Sprague - Executive Assistant at Southern Oregon University

I have attended many balloon rallies where David was a pilot. He is a very competent, skilled pilot. He is respectful of his passengers and sponsors, as well as event organizers. I recommend for any event involving hot air balloons.
