RAINBOW RYDERS PILOTS

Jeff Gilles

Jeff has been ballooning since 1978. At four years old his parents took him for his first ride, which sparked a lifelong passion. In 1993 he received his license, and two years later in 1995 he began flying rides and corporate balloons. Since then, he has flown over 5,000 times in 6 different countries on four continents, including the savannah of Tanzania, the rainforests of Costa Rica, the rice paddies of Japan, and the outback of Australia.
