Apus Air's instructors love sharing the joy of flight with anyone willing to learn, especially international students. They offer everything from casual discovery flights to commercial pilot certification and the training of private pilots in multiple languages. They teach their commercial pilot course apace, usually completing the program in about six months with weekend sessions available, and they teach all of their lessons in one-on-one settings at the student's pace. This allows instructors to make sure students have a firm grasp of equipment and procedures, maximize time spent in the air, and get used to seeing birds up close.
While her husband was in Iraq, KinderJam founder El Brown struggled to entertain her toddler with high-energy, enriching activities that would prepare him for kindergarten. Drawing on her master's degree in early-childhood education and more than a decade as an educator for children around the globe, Brown devised a program that has since become a preschool franchise reaching more than 1,300 children in four countries. The KinderJam curriculum, designed to mesh with NAEYC framework and Developmentally Appropriate Practice standards, fosters creativity and school skills with vibrant props, creative movement, and boisterous music. For younger participants, weekly BabyJam sessions strengthen bonds between infants and parents through music-fueled tickling, cuddling, and trigonometry-proof analysis.

This 8,000-square-foot facility houses five indoor batting areas to train baseball beaters on customized pitching machines capable of launching fast balls and curve balls at speeds of 25 to 90 mph, faster than the speed of black light moving toward a felt Don Mattingly.

Hardball Sports Academy also includes two cages equipped for live pitching with L-screens that protect the delicate exoskeletons of warm-blooded lobbers.
