Start Your Next Adventure with Renegade Balloons
We serve the St. Charles and St. Louis, Missouri metro area and offer
passenger flights, tethers, corporate sponsorship, and event promotion.
We are passionate about the sport of hot air ballooning. Our pilot, Mike Wadley, holds an FAA certified Commercial LTA rating and has been flying balloons for over 25 years. He is a second generation balloon pilot and his family has a collective 1,200 hours of flight time in hot air balloons. Mike is currently the president of the Gateway Aerostatic Association, the premier ballooning organization in St. Louis, and an active member of the Balloon Federation of America. He has flown in Austria and several states in the US, and routinely participates in balloon events throughout the country, including the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Mike has a perfect safety record, attends annual safety and continuing education seminars, and has provided flight and ground instruction to several pilots.
Our aircraft was manufactured by Lindstrand Balloons in Illinois and is inspected annually by an FAA certified repair station.

Call for Pricing
Whether you are looking for a balloon to tether as part of a larger event, or you want us to be the main form of entertainment, we can meet your needs. A static tether does not leave the ground, while tether rides provide passengers with a short ride to about 50 feet above the ground. We look forward to being part of your special event.
Sponsorship & Promotion
Let us show you how we can elevate your message above the competition. We can fly or tether with a banner on the basket or envelope to promote your organization. We can also help design a long-term advertising program to meet your needs. We have the experience and resources to get your message in the air.
