At DaVinci Center for Creative Arts, the teachers guide all students through the same curriculum using the Whole Art Approach to give all children their own paths to musical and artistic proficiency. This multidisciplinary approach allows students to learn music at a pace that feels natural to them, while still imparting crucial technical skills such as sight-reading and music theory. Aside from music instruction, the teaching team also offers other ventures. Martial arts teaches students dynamic movements and techniques, while abacus math allows children to develop concentration in mathematics. Ballet, theater, jazz dance, and art are also available, each adhering to the same all-inclusive teaching style.

Brush up on your birdly knowledge with 15 minutes of preflight classroom prep before lifting off in one of Taking Flight’s meticulously maintained aircrafts. Under the wing of resident aviator Aaron Wexler, you’ll perform the take off and climb, soaring free from earth’s gravitational grip. Each guided turn will strengthen your Cessna-whisperer status until your maiden flight delicately descends during an assisted landing, inevitably reuniting you with the flightless commoners.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center understand that each child learns differently. They design custom lessons based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Sylvan's instructors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12 to improve their confidence and independence leading to their educational success. Many of Sylvan’s certified teachers work in local schools and have familiarized themselves with common practices, which help them understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
Suspended within a glass and steel bubble, passengers soar over red-rock foothills and misty mountaintops. In the distance, they can glimpse the towering steel buildings of the Mile High City. The sun glints from a golden dome, and abstract façades of modern architecture reach toward clear, blue skies dotted with clouds. Though their ears are shielded by headsets, the passengers can hear the hum of the helicopter’s blades as they slice through the air. Customers also get a chance to try their hand at piloting a helicopter on one of the simulators.
Colorado Heli-Ops's team of extensively trained pilots ferries passengers on aerial tours such as these that fly over some of their state’s most historic sites and breathtaking scenery. The sleek metal hulls of Robinson R44 helicopters provide limousine-like luxury with plush leather seats. On-staff photographers can professionally capture tour memories with high-powered lenses affixed to digital cameras.
Colorado Heli-Ops's instructors also use their mechanical birds to train clients for private and commercial pilot’s licenses or help them brush up on more specialized skills through programs in high-altitude and mountain flight. To enable preflight preparation and let students observe the flight patterns of digital geese, staffers operate an FAA-certified Frasca Truflight H simulator and Merlin Turbine simulator.

Jason Hurd learned to fly at the Erie airport when his parents ran the local flight school many years ago. He now operates the top notch maintenance shop and flight school that are Vector Air.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction from an introductory flight was when a father bought his 16 year old daughter a surprise flight lesson. She was nervous but a great sport to go along with the lesson. Within 10 minutes she was having the time of her life. It was a magical flight for her and her father. The best long term reaction from and introductory flight was when a student passed his private pilot check ride. At the end of the practical test the pilot examiner told him that that was the best practical test performance he had seen in a long time.
