About the Liftin' Spirits Name  

Liftin' Spirits name came from a very special place in our families heart. Both of our fathers Robert (Bob) Favero and Daniel (Danny) Inge absolutely loved ballooning in general. Danny was actually a balloon inspector back in the day. Bob never missed a chance to photograph balloons. Karen Jackson who was a lifelong friend of ours. She visited during The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta as often as she could and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately not one of these three extraordinary people got to see this dream of ours come to fruition. So now we LIFT their SPIRITS  with us on every flight and toast to them every time we land with a SPIRIT in hand! Hence.... we are "Liftin' Spirits".
