Jonathan Carter is the pilot/owner of Carter Country Flights, LLC. Jonathan began his career in ballooning at the age of 14, when he started crewing for a local company. Jonathan became a private pilot in 1995 at the age of 18 and his commercial license in 2003. He continued working with local pilots to gain experience, as both a crew member and pilot, and was the Crew Chief of the American Flag during its inaugural year. Jonathan’s dream of owning his own balloon finally became a reality with the purchase of “First Born” in 2005 and thus was the beginning of Carter Country Flights. Jonathan, his family and crew currently fly in the Chester County area with his second balloon, “Boyhood Dream,” and attend several balloon festivals each year on the east coast.
