At the tender age of 15, Jason Jacobs had taken up an unusual hobby: flying airplanes. Since the moment Jacobs first climbed into the cockpit, he has accumulated more than 9,500 hours of flight time, studied aeronautics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and captained both Gulfstream G400 and Falcon aircrafts. To share his passion for aviation with others, in 2008 Jason founded Jacobs Flight Services, a flight-training center and aircraft-management company. The FAA 141–approved flight school offers extensive flight training with both its fleet of expertly maintained aircraft and a computerized testing center. A flying club grants licensed pilots access to the fleet and facilities, and scenic tours send nonpilots zipping through the skies over Lake Okeechobee, where a retired Zeus passes the time grooming his prize herd of cloud animals.
Within bustling retail centers, Studio One to One Photography's shutterbugs cultivate an oasis of professional calm as they draw out individual personalities through poses, props, and backgrounds.

Whether they immortalize moms-to-be showing off baby bumps or seniors chewing diplomas, print packages fill wallets with creative snapshots or decorate mantelpieces with images more elegant than a gazelle in a top hat.
