Abstract:
The Balloon Works, one of the country's three largest hot air sporting balloon manufacturers, is located near Statesville in Iredell County. The three owners, all ballooning enthusiasts, formed the company in Charlotte in 1972 and moved it to its present location in 1973. The company makes about one hundred balloons each year, with prices starting at $4995. Before it is sold, each balloon is checked by a test pilot certified with the Federal Aviation Administration, which also certifies the company for the production, repair, and maintenance of hot air balloons.
