Though just one of its many aviation and aircraft services, Capital City Jet Center's flight training catapults customers through yonder blue with one hour of premium flight instruction in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. After getting a 30-minute lesson from a certified flight instructor, customers will take to the skies for a full hour’s worth of climbing through clouds, cruising at lofty altitudes, and barrel-rolling away from hostile TIE fighters. The flight training package comes with a personal log book to record every intense detail of your first session and/or any short story ideas that occur to you mid-flight.

The rock bridge spans more than 100 feet in length, arching to a height of 50 feet as it connects to the opposing shores of the Hocking River. As kayakers glide beneath it, they look up at eons of natural history: a bridge carved out by centuries of glacial waters that eroded the sandstone away particle by particle. They gaze up at the awesome spectacle until a white-tailed deer dashes along the shore, stealing their focus.

Hocking Hills Adventures' outdoor enthusiasts continue to provide connections to moments such as these, just as they have for more than 30 years. The staff furnishes gear such as canoes and inner tubes for river trips, during which sportsmen may glimpse river dwellers such as leatherback turtles and kingfishers sneaking sandwiches from unsuspecting picnickers. Dedicated to keeping the river clean for future generations, the staff also regularly engages in conservation efforts, including sponsorship of the annual Hocking River Cleanup

Back at the fun center, crews oversee amusements that range from go-kart rides to mini golf. With such a multiplicity of diversions, Hocking Hills' team often customizes recreational packages for its guests that combine several activities. To help visitors enjoy the area for more than a day, the grounds also affords outdoorsmen lodging, including riverside campgrounds and Amish camper cabins.

The association makes its nest in hangar A-10 at The Ohio State University’s Don Scott Airport, a general aviation airport that allows students to learn fundamentals in a professional environment that's safer than jumping from the top bunk bed.
