Skydive Missouri chaperones gravity-prone thrill seekers back to earth with the help of a trained team of champion skydivers. An all-encompassing two-hour instruction session prepares aerial enthusiasts for the basics of earth-bound homecomings, covering topics of equipment, aircraft procedures, instructions for free falling, and how to make cheeks flap wildly. After safely soaring thousands of feet above ground, a licensed, professional plane-ditcher, and aspiring human backpack, straps to customers and leaps into a free-falling duet, complete with all of sky-diving's pleasure, but none of the stress of having to locate elusive ripcords. While still safely plummeting at increased altitudes, a state-of-the-art square parachute deploys, providing ample time for free-fallers to say their goodbyes to clouds they've befriended while frolicking in the sky. The skilled gravity tempters at Skydive Missouri have completed more than 15 high-altitude aircraft exits with physically impaired divers, providing exhilarating experiences for all enthusiastic cloud-hoppers.

Licensed and insured chauffeurs endure a stringent training and screening process before manning Ozarks Limo's fleet of town cars, passenger vans, party buses, and luxury stretch limos. Some of these vehicles are designed for partying—they feature elegant bars and plush furnishings that reflect the glow of neon lights, as well as sound systems powered by the love of rock 'n' roll. Others are meant for transporting passengers to and from the airport, or ensuring that clients get to their proms, weddings, and graduations. And if you've got a business function coming up, the chauffeurs can handle that, too, arriving promptly to ferry everyone from Point A to Point B.
