Don Day & Heather Day
Heather Day became a certified balloon pilot in May of 2001. Don and
Heather Day own "DayOne", a 90,000 cubic foot Aerostar. The
balloon has the "Steppin' Up" rally pattern. This is their
first balloon - named on the first day they flew it and day one of their
ballooning career. Appropriately they decided to name their balloon
"DayOne" which also goes well with their last name Day .

student pilot working on his private rating. A balloon went over the top
of Heather's house when she was five years old, and she's been hooked on
the sport since.
Steve & Jenny Early
Steve & Jenny's interest in hot air ballooning began with the very
first gathering of balloons in Albuquerque. NM (1972). Steve was the
primary instructor for a Private Pilot Ground School located in Las Cruces,
NM. Jenny shares Steve's enthusiasm for the sport of ballooning and they
have been flying ever since their first meeting in Albuquerque. Steve is
currently a Commercial Pilot since (1996) and Jenny is a Private Pilot since
Their balloon, "Cricket's Dream"
is named in tribute to Steve's mother, Cricket. Cricket loved watching
the hot air balloons from her home in Albuquerque. She always dreamed of
a balloon landing in her back yard and having that balloon take her on a
beautiful flight. Unfortunately, Cricket passed away before Steve could
actually provide her that flight. Now Cricket's "Spirit &
Love" flies proudly with Steve and Jenny on every flight. That is a
very special tribute indeed for forever will the colors of that balloon
display ever lasting pride to be seen where ever it may fly.
