Chris Smart, also known as CCD (Chris Can Do), is from Huntington, Indiana. Chris returns to Battle Creek for his 5th year flying his Dream Racer Balloon with the Blu Fish Consulting banner. He got into hot-air ballooning as a family hobby, and for the love of flight over 24 years ago. He has logged over 1400 pilot-in-command hours, and just as many fond memories. He loves flying with his brothers from other mothers, as they are all Top Dogs in his eyes.
Chris has finished in the top 10 every year since starting in Battle Creek, placing # 9 in 2014 & #6 in 2013 & in 2012 in the Battle Creek Field of Flight Hot-Air Balloon Competition.
