Q&A with the Owner

How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
Pacific Blue Air offers instructional flights along the scenic California coastline our state-of-the-art, open-cockpit REVO Evolution aircraft. ... Unlike helicopter rides, there are no doors to obstruct views and passengers actually get to control and steer the aircraft once in flight. And while our aircraft may look like something best suited for thrill seekers, it's actually remarkably safe. Should trouble ever arise with the legendary Rotax engine, our agile wing could simply glide the craft down to safety. In addition, our REVO is equipped with a ballistic deployed parachute.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Henry the chief flight instructor is also a certified skydiving instructor, PADI scuba dive master, aerial cinematographer, and world-renowned base jumper.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
My business partner and I took one flight with our friends in Hawaii (who run a light sport aircraft company called Paradise Air) and thought it was one of the most fun and exciting things we'd ever experienced.

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.
