Welcome to Big Sky Balloon Co. My name is Darren Kling and it is with great pride that I can offer hot air balloon flights over Central Oregon. Since 1993 I have been flying balloons around the country as well as internationally while logging well over a thousand hours of flight time and maintaining a perfect safety record.  I've been conducting flights in the Bend and Redmond area of Central Oregon since 2000 and love to fly this area for it's dramatic scenery and great conditions. I'll be your host and pilot for your flight over the high desert and look forward to having you aboard soon for this one of a kind experience!
