Glenn D. Horton

Pilot / Owner

A life long resident of Sullivan County, Glenn grew up in Wurtsboro, NY and graduated from Monticello High School in 1977. He immediately went into the United States Air Force, where he served the majority of his 4-year term at Plattsburgh Air Force Base in Plattsburgh, NY. Upon leaving the Air Force, Glenn moved back to the county to pursue a college education while working full time. In 1985, he decided to finish his Bachelor of Science degree at SUNY Cortland in Recreation Education, with a minor in Outdoor Education.

It was Glenn's love of the outdoors, his strong interest in aviation and weather, along with a chance happening at a balloon festival in 1997 that finally placed him in a wicker basket and a niche he loves. Ballooning has become one of his strongest passions. It’s 220-year history, paired with the romance of flying, has all but taken him over the edge.

Glenn is presently engrossed in his balloon company that he operates in the Sullivan and Columbia County regions. His contacts in the industry continue to strengthen and he enjoys a successful business of flying. In the meantime, it is his goal to make all the contacts he can, fly as much as possible, and bring the fun of ballooning to the area. After all, in Glenn's world, the sky's the limit!
