With federally licensed flight instructors, quality ground facilities, and well-maintained aircraft, Tri-State's flight school provides a stable base for serious students or an enabling experience for those simply following mankind's innate urge to fly. Amateur aviators spend the first half of the lesson on the ground learning the principles of flight, including basic aerodynamics and how the craft works. Before takeoff students assist in the preflight inspection, then help check the weight and balance to ensure the plane is in shape to fly and has finished its vegetables. During flight, students will be allowed to briefly take the controls and pilot the plane, and then review their voyage in a postflight debrief.

The skilled stem systemizers at Flowers and More sweeten the smells of courtship with red-rose compilations and other exotic bloomers. Woo spouses or a winsome vase with a dozen, long-stemmed roses, a 12 set of fragrant love buds nested in crisp paper, draped in tangles of baby’s breath, and tied with colorful ribbon. Or, opt for other colorful, fresh-cut arrangements, which vary from week to week but often include daisies, carnations, lilies, peonies, tulips, daffodils, and irises. While not included in today's Groupon, Flowers and More also carries complete lines of potted plants and gift baskets to suit every produce-appropriate occasion.
