Chris & Amanda Sabia

Overland Park, Kansas

High & Free



A family balloon ride for his father's birthday in 1988 was all it took to get Chris hooked on ballooning. After crewing for several years he set his sights higher and earned both his hot air balloon and fixed wing pilot's certificates. Soon after, he began flying for several corporate balloon programs including Coca-Cola, Kellogg's, and RE/MAX.

Amanda, a real estate agent, was offered a flight with Chris in the RE/MAX balloon in 1999, and they have been together ever since a second flight later that year.  Amada discovered that she too had a passion for ballooning and earned her pilot's certificate and they have spent the years since traveling the country with different balloon programs, as well as offering balloon rides and selling real estate in the Kansas City area.


Their company, Kansas City Aerosports, offers many ballooning opportunites and organizes balloon festivals and events throughout the midwest.
