About Us

Bigfoot Balloons is owned and operated by Jake Thomas and Shannon Tuck. It was established in the far-eastern corner of Tennessee, in Chattanooga.

Flying high above the Appalachian Mountains had began as a hobby soon turned into a passion. ‘Chattanooga Balloon Company’ was born; the original pursuit that started it all. We have since changed our name and relocated. Though we are still wholeheartedly passionate about flying we have discovered that ballooning is only worth doing if you are continually being inspired by the new people and places that you fly. This idea of moving and travelling with the balloon has directed and carried us all the way across the country.

Today, we are ‘Bigfoot Balloons of Wallowa County Oregon’ floating around Wallowa Mountains and living tiny in our portable home during the summer. On mornings where we are not flying our balloon you might find us attempting small summits, riding dirt bikes through the magical trails of Oregon, flying our wingsuits or paragliders, perhaps maybe on the river, or simply lounging around outside reading a book. You might say we’re the ‘outdoorsy-type’.

Hope to share the sky with you!
