The FAA-certified commercial pilots at West Air Aviation guide fledgling aviators through pilot classes and take tourists on airborne odysseys over downtown Las Vegas. Through expert one-on-one lessons, students flyers can earn their pilots license, as the team says, "almost as easily as their driver's license." Meanwhile, guests embarking on site-seeing tours enjoy breathtaking vistas of downtown Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam, and Nevada's expansive natural landmarks from enclosed cockpits. The team's fleet of propeller-powered biplanes and single-wing planes nest at North Las Vegas Airport, taking to the skies on days, nights, and weekends.

At Paradise Ranch—an equine educational center that specializes in horse-assisted therapy sessions—expertly trained steeds help students learn techniques to tackle developmental difficulties, boost communication skills, and strengthen their bodies. Children can spend time with Luna, the notorious ranch troublemaker, or Spiritt, who loves to mug for the camera. While they may be confused for the children of Hollywood celebrities, these guys are actually two of the seven therapy horses at the ranch. Specially designed courses take place inside a sprawling, climate-controlled arena, which grants students a comfortable place to learn and helps horses avoid embarrassing underarm sweat stains.

Capturing True Emotion is driven by a dynamic band of instructors who rove across the continent with cameras and teaching skills in hand. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversize head, the educators provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization, giving participants complete control over all of their camera settings. During the hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, students convene at a tantalizing location to practice skills such as controlling depth of field by adjusting the aperture, composing a family portrait so there's not always a burning zeppelin in the background, using alternative angles to avoid red eye, and other techniques.
