Everyone wishes they could skip those long airport-security lines—and Springs Aviation holds the key to doing just that. Its experienced, certified instructors teach aspiring flyers the skills and knowledge they need to earn their private pilot license, opening up an airborne world of possibilities. Students train on fixed-wing aircraft, including 1985 and 1997 Cessnas, and they also spend time in ground-school classrooms. The staff of pilots also makes civilians' dreams of flying come true during flights, which put flyers in the cockpit of a small airplane before they take over the controls for most of the flight, so the instructor finally has time to finish his airplane-peanut art project.
Held every year, the Kitchens with Altitude tour supports the Junior League of Colorado Springs, an organization that promotes volunteerism and developing women's potential throughout the Pikes Peak region through its charitable showcase of the region's most sophisticated residential kitchens. Tour-goers journey through a self-guided tour of the area's most upscale neighborhoods, scoping out gleaming appliances and getting marooned on elegant islands of marble and oak. At various homes along the path, the day's culinary odyssey will cover current trends in tabletop design and floral arrangements as well as cooking demonstrations and food and drink samples from renowned local chefs as they shout monosyllabic catchphrases at their ingredients. All tour proceeds support projects and programs benefiting women and children in El Paso County and the Junior League's Fantasy Flight and Kids in the Kitchen programs.
