About the Pilot


Sydney Hensley

Sydney Hensley, the founder and primary pilot of SkyVista Ballooning, is a commercially rated hot air balloon pilot from Bloomington, Indiana.  She started flying balloons in high school and earned her first pilot rating the day before graduation. She has since flown hundreds of passengers all over the country with a perfect safety record and worked as a commercial pilot in her hometown conducting private flights. Sydney personally designed her own balloon to be the brightest in the sky in hopes that it will bring joy to everyone who see's it. When she's not flying balloons, you can probably still find her in the sky flying airplanes! She has a love for aviation and adventure and wants to share that with everyone.
