Welcome to Avian Balloon Co.

Avian Balloon Company was founded by Forey Walter in 1974. We claim the distinction of being the oldest balloon manufacturing company in the United States which still has its original name and management.


Avian manufactures six different models under its four FAA Type Certificates. Envelopes range from 42,000 to 160,000 cubic feet in volume. All envelopes come standard with our heavy duty 1.9 oz./yd. ripstop nylon that is finished with a coating of silicone. All envelopes are of the horizontal cut and are offered in 16, 20, 24, or 28 gores depending on their volume. All 24 and 28 gore envelopes come with our double pulley parachute deflation port design for easy operation.
