Life is just too short to sit still

===>Due to COVID concerns, ALL paid rides are Cancelled until further notice<====

My name is Gene, and I've constructed this site so you might see ( o)( o) there is MORE to life THAN what is in your NORMAL vision. (look inside to see why "ClipAway" came to mind).

Example: Most people have seen Hot Air Balloons on TV or in a magazine, BUT how many know they can participate in this sport and even earn a free flight??? (Next time you see a balloon pilot, ask them what you need to do)

I've attempted to balance pages on this site with interesting hobbies and links. Please feel free to explore my world (and come back now and again to see the changes).

P.S. - Thanks to my friends (I count my crew amongst them) for all their support.

Check inside to see ClipAway flying in the New Jersey area, and at various events.!

ClipAway in the news:

  • 2016 was the 3rd and final year for the GEBC (Great Eastern Balloon Camp) - a BFA camp in Pennsylvania, with ClipAway's Pilot as the camp Director!!!

  • It was geared towards teens 13-18 - no experience necessary

  • The camp was part of the BFA's Youth Program.

  • We continue to update the Facebook - Eastern Balloon Camp page, to let you look back at camp and what is happening now with the campers!
