Ballooning

AeroInk’s principals — Dean and Kim Rosenlof — are both hot air balloon pilots. The company owns two hot air balloons. The smallest at 69,000 cu. ft. and sporting a black-and-white checkerboard scheme around its equator is named Tango. The largest at 105,000 cu. ft. and essentially red with a white equator is Happy Hour. At one time the company had a third balloon, Voyager, with vertical black, pink, and neon yellow stripes, but this balloon had to be retired in about 2007 due to age.

Kim Rosenlof has served as balloon coordinator for various balloon festivals in Arizona, including at Sun City Festival, Chandler’s Ostrich Festival, Prescott Valley Rotary Balloon Festival, and Prescott’s Mile High Balloon Fest.
