The certified flight instructors at Aviators Flight Academy have been helping fledgling pilots earn their wings for more than three decades. Students take off from Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport toward the earth’s giant blue tarp using the academy’s fleet of Cessna and Piper fixed-wing aircraft, performing basic maneuvers under a teacher’s expert supervision. Beyond introductory lessons, students can also enroll in the flight-training school to earn their license and finally be able to impersonate pilots at airport bars.

Despite the shop’s short menu–just frozen yogurt and yogurt-based treats–no two trips to Yagööt are alike. Every few months, the shop shakes up its frozen-yogurt lineup, swapping in two new seasonal flavors to complement the Original and Strawberry yogurts available year-round. So, while one visit may have yielded a sweet cup of fresh raspberries and Strawberry fro-yo, the next could treat taste buds to an entirely different experience, perhaps caramel-drizzled Italian Cocoa or Oreos crumbled over Pomegranate yogurt.

After purchasing their first limo—a 1965 Cadillac Factory Formal—in 1978, the dedicated valets, chauffeurs, and technicians at Westwind began to build a fleet of stretch Jeeps, shuttles, and buses. Today, their shiny stretch vehicles tote passengers to and from the airport while customers’ cars rest safely in the comfort of a garage that’s heated to reduce potential cold-weather car troubles or strange sniffling noises from the engine. While lodging at Westwind, vehicles may be treated to life-extending maintenance or beautifying detail treatments as skilled technicians switch out old motor oil or buff and polish paint jobs. The garage’s luxurious lineup of shuttles, vans, and limos transports guests in style, whether carrying commuters to the airport in a limo or celebrating a wedding with a 14-passenger stretch SUV.

Underwater World Scuba Center offers scuba-diving courses that take students from the shallows of a heated indoor swimming pool at its dive shop to the depths of the ocean in faraway places such as Fiji and the Cayman Islands. Open-water certification classes cover breathing techniques and safety regulations for beginners, whereas advanced certification courses give pupils enough skills to explore the depths as a master diver or marine-life photographer. The center's trainers also provide guidance to customers who are purchasing equipment, service and repair gear, and organize scuba trips to exotic locations.
