Steve Sitko is from Jackson, MI and will be flying for his 3rd year in the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloons Festival. He has been a licensed balloon pilot since 2012. When not flying his balloon, Steve works in purchasing for a local Tier 1 automotive supplier. The name of his balloon is Maveryx, which is a mash-up of his two daughter's names together. Steve is almost always accompanied by his Crew Chief and loving wife Sara. In my own words, "my finishes aren't quite good enough to publish". His one major accomplishment in Battle Creek is after years of rejection, he finally received the "team" hat from fellow pilot Rick Kerber in 2018.
He placed 1st in the 2016 Jackson Hot-Air Jubilee. Steve loves to fly and see the reactions from the kids of all ages upon landing his balloon.
