About Us


Tucson Arizona is the home of Foolish Pleasure hot air balloon rides. Dan Ewer, a native Tucsonan, and Lorrie Ewer, spent a couple of years crewing for other balloons before Dan decided to buy a hot air balloon of his own. Dan furthered his interest by acquiring his FAA private pilots' license. He then continued his education by acquiring his FAA commercial pilots license. Dan enjoys hot air ballooning so much that he decided to offer his love of the sport to the public in hopes of sharing the freedom and beauty of flight at an affordable price.

Dan is also a FAA qualified instructor and can offer the education necessary to become a hot air balloon pilot.

Lorrie has the responsibility of ensuring flight preparations and brunch are exact. Lorrie is also an ordained officiant for those wishing to be married during or after their hot air balloon adventure.
