Introducing Southeastern Camp Pilot Patrick Grogan,
Patrick started crewing at the 1990 Carolina Balloon Fest in Statesville, NC and enjoyed it so much that the following spring he started crewing for a balloon company in Charlotte. After two years, Patrick met another pilot that was closer to where he lived and started crewing for him. After crewing for a little over a year, his pilot invited Patrick to start flight lessons. Patrick continued to crew for him while I worked on his certificate.
In August of 1993, Patrick received his first flight lesson and received his commercial rating in June of 1994.
Since then, Patrick has logged hours in many different balloons from 77,000 cu. ft. to 180,000 cu. ft., as well as two different special shapes.
In February 2019, Patrick started working at FireFly Balloons 2010, Inc. building his newest envelope - a 105,000 cu. ft. - he was able to assist in cutting the fabric, sewing the panels into gores, sewing the skirt and valve, and most of the finishing work by installing the anchor loops, skirt ties and fly tech pouch. Since working at Firefly, Patrick has also helped with the construction of several new balloons, annual inspections, and has been assisting with sewing repairs on clients’ balloons.
