Lucky Duck Aviation's FAA-certified flight instructors have created a unique step-by-step curriculum to help the land-locked proceed into the clouds. Flying Cessna 172s in their lessons and tours, Lucky Duck equips amateur pilots with the necessary tools to safely fly as a hobby or profession while learning to avoid nomadic gangs of flying saucers. The trained pilots also give guided tours of 30–60 minutes so passengers can behold some of Utah’s most notable sites, such as the Red Butte Gardens, Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, and local wildlife.
High Velocity Aviation's experienced pilots lift hearts and bodies skyward with 30-minute tours that showcase the natural splendor of the Salt Lake area. After scheduling a tour, upward-bound voyagers depart from Skypark Airport in a shining Enstrom 280FX Shark named after the winged hammerheads that once roamed freely throughout the Utah plains. Flyers can choose to explore aerial views of the magnificent craggy recesses of the Salt Lake Valley or the majestic mountains of Park City, and aviation aces are happy to cater to special tour requests from passengers who wish to customize a route past sun-kissed lakes and famed landmarks, or those looking to sweep past home to make sure the garage door is closed.
In crowded classrooms, it's easy for the needs of individual children to be overlooked. Despite the best efforts on the parts of teachers and students alike, all children learn at different rates and in different ways. Sylvan Learning Center's nationwide network of tutors and resources seeks to fill in educational gaps and keep flagging students from elementary to high school up to speed.
Whether children struggle with reading, writing, or solving the complex logarithms necessary to get their jetpacks airborne, Sylvan's learning gurus help them chart a course through learning roadblocks. Initial skills assessments determine where students fit into the Sylvan tutoring regimen with a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and interviews. With a greater understanding of the needs of each student, tutors create custom approaches to keep students engaged and in command of the fundamentals.
Red Butte Gardens was recognized in 2009 by ParentsConnect as the best tourist spot in Salt Lake City. With properly mannered gardens as well as natural areas, this verdant oasis charms humans, honeybees, and wood sprites of all ages. Exercise the body's primary olfactory organ on the Floral Walk, which provides exclusive access to such botanical hotspots as the Rose Garden, the Fragrance Garden, and the Children’s Garden. Visitors who prefer nature with its grasses untamed and nails unmanicured should proceed directly to the natural area, where trails connected by less than six degrees of separation lead to canyon overlooks, creeks, and quarry houses.
For the past 10 holiday seasons, A Holiday Light's illuminati have bedecked abodes with strands of brilliant bulbs. Teams of torch techs report to front lawns lugging ladders, fasteners, and all other equipment necessary to make eaves gleam, including six shimmering lengths, or up to 150 feet of lights, each inch of which homeowners get to keep. Deft designers crown rooflines, fixtures, and trees, and liven up lackluster house pets during the 25- to 45-minute installation. After the season draws to a close and the last of the holiday cheer has been shoved back into the basement, technicians return to remove the lights, ensuring the iridescent bulbs won't distract from the giant inflatable Gerald Ford set up for Presidents' Day.
