CaptainCrystal Stout brings a joy to ballooning with her expert skill as a pilot and her experiences as a story teller. She enjoys thinking outside the box to make your special occasion that much more enjoyable (got wings?). She is also a 3rd Generation hot air balloonist who has enjoyed flying in many parts of the world. Feel free to get to know CaptainCrystal more through her biography.

Morning Star Balloon Crew

The Morning Star Balloon Team (our Crew) are a fun and enthusiastic addition to the flight experience.

Events and Adventures in Washington including Flights out of Sequim Valley Airport, WA

Every year is an exciting year for us. Why? Because we get to fly balloons, meet new people, explore new skies, share wonderful memories, and teach adults to play like children.
