Pilot Biography

Cosmos was built in 2012 by Air Fly Balloons located in Brazil. Cosmos by himself weights 486 lbs or 220.446 kilograms. He stands 105 feet tall or 32.004 meters and also he holds 116 thousand cu. feet of air. He was built as a Special Shape for Cindy. She saw a drawing and said she wanted him. So now I have to do all the work and she has all the fun!

The most interesting story happened right after we got him. Cindy and I were at Fiesta in Albuquerque and a representative from NASA came up to us and asked a lot of questions and took a lot of pictures of Cosmos 1. That was very cool!!!
