About Us
ACE HIGH BALLOONING WAS CREATED BY BOB GRIMES, A COMMERCIALLY LICENSED BALLOON PILOT SINCE 1977.   HE TOOK HIS FIRST BALLOON RIDE IN 1973, THE SAME YEAR HIS NEIGHBOR WON THE FIRST WORLD HOT AIR BALLOON CHAMPIONSHIP.

BEING A COLLEGE STUDENT AT THE TIME WITH NO MONEY TO BUY A BALLOON OR PAY FOR LESSONS, BOB WORKED AND CREWED FOR HIS FLIGHT INSTRUCTION.
IN JANUARY OF 1979 BOB MOVED TO ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO TO WORK FOR WORLD BALLOON CORPORATION, THE LARGEST COMMERCIAL BALLOON OPERATION IN THE WORLD AT THAT TIME.   FLYING SEVERAL CORPORATE BALLOONS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY, HE GAINED VALUABLE PILOTING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS SKILLS.

WANTING TO SETTLE DOWN A BIT, IN 1982 HE MOVED BACK TO MICHIGAN TO START HIS OWN BUSINESS AND GET MARRIED.

IN 1983, BOB WAS CHOSEN TO BE THE CHIEF PILOT FOR THE BUICK OLYMPIC BALLOON PROGRAM. AN EXTENSIVE EIGHTEEN MONTH TOUR THAT CULMINATED AT THE SUMMER GAMES IN LOS ANGELES.

ALONG WITH RUNNING A SUCESSFUL CHARTER RIDE BUSINESS, HE ALSO SUB-CONTRACTED WITH OTHER BALLOON COMPANIES FLYING COMMERCIAL BALLOONS FOR VARIOUS COMPANIES AROUND THE MID-WEST.   BOB STARTED ORGANIZING SOME SMALL BALLOON FESTIVALS,  SOME OF WHICH ARE STILL HAPPENING EVERY YEAR.

ACE HIGH BALLOONING MOVED IT'S OPERATIONS TO THE MIDDLE TENNESSEE AREA IN EARLY 2000.   BETTER WEATHER AND ECONOMIC CLIMATE HAS PROVEN TO BE BETTER FOR MORE YEAR ROUND FLYING.
