Bob Mueller is coming to the Warren County Farmers’ Fair as the pilot of the RE/MAX balloon (Above the Crowd) . Bob has been flying balloons since 1983. He counts himself lucky to have used the sport to feed his passions for travel, sightseeing and meeting people.
In addition to flying in many of the states in the United States, Bob has also flown in six different countries. Bob has flown in several rallies in the US, including Albuquerque International Balloon Festival, Adirondacks Balloon Festival, New Jersey Festival of Ballooning. His all-time favorite rally to fly at is the Red White & Blue Festival at Letchworth Park in upper New York, over the largest of the 27 water falls there. In addition to flying the RE/MAX hot air balloon, Bob loves doing school programs for K-5 and administering the local club’s balloon competition.
Bob recommends getting involved with ballooning on many levels, flying, crewing and building. The local club in the tristate area, Great Eastern Balloon Association (GEBA), is an excellent source of information.
