What inspired you or the owner (if that?s not you) to start or run this business?
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.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
As a flight instructor we are able to do what we love for "work".
Although Tutor Doctor - Longmont recognizes that every student is different, the company begins each relationship the same way. First, an educational consultant gathers information from parents, educators, and students themselves to create full-fledged pictures of their learning styles, personalities, and academic goals. Then, the company uses that information to pair the student with one of more than 100 carefully screened tutors or subject specialists to aid with current class work; prep for the SAT, ACT, and other exams; or bolster a shaky understanding of fundamental concepts—all from the convenience of the student's home or favorite swing set. After each session, e-mailed progress reports keep parents on top of their youngster's learning curve. Staff also can accommodate autism and other special-needs students, or aid college and graduate students via adult education.

David Clair’s number one goal as the director and a trainer at Fitness For Living Boot Camps is to lead his patrons in having fun. He says, “If it is not fun, you won’t do it; you’ll always have an internal struggle staying motivated.” Here, the strong muscles, solid core, and slimmer waistline just happen to be a byproduct of having fun in the outdoors.
The trainers motivate clients to whip into shape with a series of smile-inducing fitness activities that often incorporate teamwork, including obstacle courses, games of soccer or basketball, and relay races. To further hone in on flexibility, strength, and balance training, campers complete a high-intensity regimen of CrossFit, TRX suspension, and Tabata training, interspersed with heaving sand bags and jumping rope. Alternatively, the Powerfit yoga camps take a blend of flowing Vinyasa-style yoga poses and Pilates techniques to the outdoors. The sessions focus on toning core muscles and building strength and flexibility. The trainers also help clients slim down with nutrition tips and meal-plan programs, and send out motivating emails that have nothing to do with money-hungry princes.
