Proud Of East Texas: Guy Gauthier

Guy Gauthier of Longview spends much of his time up in the air.  He spends much of the rest of his time helping others stay up in the air.  Gauthier has not only been a hot air balloon pilot and designer for more than thirty years, his balloon repair business "Bret", Balloon Repairs of East Texas enables other hot air balloon pilots to practice the sport safely.

Gauthier is one of six brothers who fly hot air balloons.  He has project managed numerous world record races and designed and refurbished many of the balloons in them.  He says once bitten by the hot air balloon bug, it's almost impossible to recover.  BRET is located at 5103 West Marshall Avenue in Longview.
