Welcome to Sail Away Adventures of Topeka!
Sail Away Adventures has operated continuously since 1974. We've enjoyed a perfect safety record while thousands have experienced the gentle magic of balloon flight with us.
Sail-A-Way, Inc. was originally conceived by the late Charles R. Tantillo as a sailboat dealership. The name stuck when he began flying hot air balloons as a family hobby in 1972, offering sight seeing flights, training new pilots, and co-founding the Great Plains Huff n Puff balloon rally (since 1976). Chuck's son Chris Tantillo has continued the tradition since 1992 under the current moniker.
"Providing such a unique experience is very personal and rewarding. Each flight is different, and we really love sharing the magic and making new friends. For many of our Passengers the balloon flight is once in a lifetime, although some get 'hooked' and become "aeronauts" themselves. Either way it's an honor to help people enjoy such a big adventure!"
"What could be better?"
