Though the crew at Fly Light Sport CA has logged more than 3,000 combined hours in the air, the same can't be said for the fleet—none of the young, modern aircraft flies more than 100 hours a week, ensuring the planes and their engines stay in top condition. During license classes and quick discovery flights along the California coastline, aspiring pilots take the reins of a Remos GX, one of the most advanced planes in the industry. Constructed from a kevlar-carbon fiber, these German-designed, factory-built aircraft boast foldable wings, a safety rocket parachute, the ability to fly without doors, and a high-tech interface—all state-of-the-art features that help pilots feel as if they're flying a modern version of the future's docile cyber-pigeons.
Matteo Baker didn't put “220” in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be “second to none.” With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
