Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.
Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.
Aside from taking place inside a 30-foot mobile video-game theater dressed with leather walls, hardwood floors, and a carpet runner, no Gamer vs. Gamer party is alike. That's because each soiree includes a choice of personalized touches??from face-painting sessions and glow-in-the-dark T-shirts to cakes shaped like game controllers??for each birthday child. These add-ons flavor events that unfold inside the self-powered, climate-controlled suite, which is also armed with wi-fi and streaming music capabilities. Under the watch of an adult game concierge, up to 12 partygoers lounging in leather game chairs select from a digital video game catalog ranging from Sonic & All-Stars Racing to NBA 2K14 to play on a 55-inch HDTV. If parents approve, Gamer vs. Gamer also supplies more mature options such as Halo 4. Also available for weddings and graduations, the suite can even be converted into a 3D movie theater for screenings of select flicks such as The Lion King. But all of these attractions are supplementary to the main event, the party itself, which Gamer vs. Gamer is dedicated to making wild and spectacular for every guest.
Occasionally, it's important to arrive in style, and it's hard to imagine transports much more stylish than Corporate Limo Atlanta's fleet of late-model luxury vehicles. Professional chauffeurs arrive behind the wheels of Lincoln Town Cars, Bentleys, Mercedes, and Rolls Royce limousines, or even 50-passenger party buses, ready to whisk individuals or groups to their destination of choice. The drivers can take the hassle out of travel by transporting corporate clients to or from the airport in style and comfort, or help create a safe, memorable night out on the town for larger groups. And, of course, they add an extra touch of elegance to special occasions such as proms, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and long-overdue preschool reunions.
Biplane Rides Over Atlanta, Inc.'s practiced pilots leap into the air in fully restored antique aircraft to grant passengers a glimpse of natural and manmade majesties from above. In the open-air cockpit of a classic antique biplane, adventurers can taste the whipping winds of high altitudes over Downtown Atlanta, glimpsing Turner Field, the Georgia Dome, and Centennial Olympic Park, where the Farmer's Almanacs of previous eras are put out to pasture. Alternately, they can surmount the igneous crown of Stone Mountain and soar above the Mississippi riverboats that dot the surrounding lakes, or gently flit over the cityscape bathed in a golden aura during a romantic sunset flight.
A span of approximately 3,000 parking spaces fills the indoor and outdoor lots at Peachy Airport Parking, where a courteous staff keeps a watchful eye over rides 24 hours a day.
