About the Pilot
Gary L. Tyo
A Native of North Central Ohio, Gary is a ballooning veteran of 30+ years.  His interest in
ballooning came after attending a Festival in 1972, while helping a pilot launch a
balloon.  He thought it was a unique and fascinating experience and that he would like to
try it some time. It wasn't until 1981 that he purchased his first balloon and obtained his
Private pilot’s license.  The following year he acquired his Commercial license.  He is a
member of  the Central Ohio Balloon Club, and a long-time member of the Balloon
Federation of America.

Gary has an excellent flying record with no accidents or injuries.  He has extensive
knowledge of the art and science of ballooning and is dedicated to keeping the balloon
business safe, exciting and enjoyable for every passenger that flies with Mid Ohio
Balloon Adventures, LLC.   His easy-going personality makes him your ideal pilot when
floating over the farms and countryside of North Central Ohio.

Gary says he "thoroughly enjoys all aspects of ballooning including competing and flying
for fun.  The best part, however, is the excitement the balloon brings to others."

When not flying balloons, you can find him riding his bike, hiking, running, camping,
traveling, playing basketball, reading, and spending time with his family and friends.
