The Pilots of Stoweflake

Chuck Baraw, President of Stoweflake and his brother, Stu began flying hot air balloons over 23 years ago. From the first time I flew, I was convinced that it was the freest feeling that anyone can ever have. Hot Air Ballooning is the closest you will ever come to flying on a Magic Carpet" stated Chuck in an interview with Good Morning America.  "The sense of freedom is unsurpassed."

For anniversaries, marriage proposals, birthdays and those just looking for fun, Chuck and his brother have hosted hundreds of hot air balloon launches from the spectacular grounds of Stoweflake. And—most recently, to follow in the family tradition, Eric Smith (husband to Sheri Baraw Smith) has joined the team to form a trio known as the Pilots of Stoweflake.

Every year they invite hot air balloonists from all over the country to share in their passion for flying in the Vermont Top Ten Event known as the Stoweflake Annual Balloon Festival!
