The team at King Aviation Mansfield owns the air with flying lessons and virtually all other services related to aircraft. Based at Mansfield Municipal Airport, its flight school certifies aviators from ATP flight training to Light Sport licensing. King Aviation Mansfield also has a fleet of seven aircraft for use in flight training and for rental, including an LSA.
A pilot skillfully navigates a 1950 L-17 Warbird over the New England landscape, giving passengers an unrivaled view of the lush hills and angst-stricken poets below. Before taking off, a preflight inspection ensures that the cockpit is secure and stowaway clouds are thrown out onto the runway. The pilot then explains each control's functionality while covering the basics of the flight deck instruments. Once airborne, riders can gaze over the lush New England landscape while snapping photos and even snag the altitude stick for a lesson in amateur piloting as the aircraft glides by clouds under the watchful eye of the pilot. Though today's deal is for two, a third passenger may be added at an additional charge.
Hunakai Studio of Fine Art combines the study of past masters with plenty of hands-on art-making experience for students of all ages. Instructors teach students to sculpt in clay, paint and draw, or generate digital images with 3D design programs and tablets. They lead studies into the iconic images of Renaissance painters, the drawings of famed cartoonists, and the murals of prolific graffiti artists. They do this all while keeping class sizes small, with no more than eight students per instructor. This lets the teachers customize lessons to students' needs, helping pupils progress at their own pace instead of racing to keep up with that overachiever Suzy Collins.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
