Discovery flight lessons at the FAA-approved Airborne Systems Flight Training centers offer a detailed overview of preflight planning before setting off into the skies in a Cessna 172 SP. Runways at both airports provide the necessary legroom for pilots in training to realize their dreams, which mostly involve becoming giant metal birds that dart between clouds and drink Capri Sun fresh from its fiery source. For the first 15 minutes of the 60-minute lesson, flight instructors take great care in explaining the processes of readying a plane for uplift. Together you'll check the weather and test flaps, rudders, and engine fuel before taking off into the great blue Earthling/Martian divide during the remaining 45 minutes of your lesson.
Whether a party consists of 4 or 40, FTL Limo, LLC ensures that the group can stick together as they traipse throughout the Miami area. The company's chauffeurs pilot a fleet that ranges from a Mercedes-Benz S550 sedan to a massive party bus, with wheels such as a stretch Chrysler 300 and a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van in between. The mobile mansions scoot all over town for any number of purposes, including transfers to and from major airports and ports and rousing bar crawls with corporate clients. Regardless of the sizes of the vehicles, passengers enjoy their commutes amid classy interiors decked out with creature comforts. Riders are free to take advantage of the free soda and flat-screen televisions while reclining on comfy leather seats.
Park By The Ports blurs the line between a parking lot and an auto spa. Located a brief shuttle ride away from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades, Park By The Ports puts travelers' minds at ease by not only protecting vehicles, but caring for them as well. The gated, camera-monitored lot features its own body shop complete with a staff of mechanics. For cars in long-term parking, these mechanics are willing to offer their services, changing the oil, washing and polishing exteriors, or even hiding spare change between the seats if owners would like. Upon returning from their trip and stepping off the shuttle, travelers are then greeted by their sparkling-clean, freshly tuned-up car before the drive home.
Imagine a party on a bicycle built for 15, and you've got yourself a Cycle Party. The large, pedal-powered land-craft seats up to 15 passengers (10 pedalers, 5 coasters) that wheel their way around Fort Lauderdale Beach. A trained company driver operates the steering wheel and brakes during the two-hour minimum outing, while riders listen to music and come up with the agenda for the night. The vehicle often hits the streets for Cycle Party pub-crawls, which takes groups around to 3 participating restaurants and bars. During these 20-minute stopovers, guests can flash their VIP wristbands for access to drink specials, and to avoid lines and cover charges.
Air & Sea Parking furnishes a safe, insured, multilevel garage where cars can wait out their drivers' trips sheltered from the elements.

Air & Sea Parking further eases the travel process by running a 24-hour, year-round shuttle service to the airline or cruise terminals.
