The high-energy activities under Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center’s roof instigate rushes of adrenaline in technicolor environs. In the multileveled, 6,000-square-foot laser-tag arena, teams of combatants track down their opponents as they navigate serpentine passageways, duck around forest plants, and circumvent digital quicksand. Padded Crazy Cars spin 360 degrees as drivers ricochet around the rink, while on the trampolines lining the walls and floor of the Xtreme Jump pit, visitors of all ages traverse its elastic expanses in leaps and bounds. After their adventures, they can sample snacks from the Xtreme Cafe & Bar, including pizza, sandwiches, and wings.

The BlueMountain Activities team makes sure each guest can have fun out on the water, whether it's frozen solid or shimmering in the summer sun. During the winter, customers can rent ice-fishing huts and explore the snow-covered trails on snowshoes or snowmobiles either on their own or with guides skilled at warding off the forest's wild plows. Conversely, in the warmer months, BlueMountain rents out wave runners and party barges for sunlit cruises on the Georgian Bay.

Q&A with Jose Goncalves, Chief Flight Instructor

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

The aim of the private-pilot ground school is to provide you with the knowledge to make you a safe pilot. To this end, we have designed and modified the ground school syllabus over the past 14 years to achieve this goal and to ensure that you gain the most benefit from the material.

Ground school is completed in a classroom setting, and we limit the class size to 12 in order to provide the best interaction with all attendees. Ground school runs separately from flight training, but is an integral part of your overall success as a pilot. Many students find that doing flight training while taking ground school enhances their understanding of each.

Each ground school session is an individual module. Doing it this way ensures that if you miss a session, it will not affect the rest of the course?you will not be left behind.

At Future Air, we feel that there is difference between meeting the minimums and ensuring a complete and thorough understanding of the required material. To this extent, our custom-designed ground school course exceeds the Transport Canada stated minimums.

Classes are typically run twice a week for about 16 weeks.

Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?

All ground school instructors are highly experienced and are dedicated to having the students gain the most out of ground school. The instructors are always available prior to the start of each nightly session to answer any questions that students may have.

The staff members at Future Air are highly experienced in the flight-training industry with a combined experience of over 40 years. Future Air is proud to have the highest experienced flight instructors in the area.

Future Air?s ground school course is conducted on site throughout the year, this personalized, in-class experience is unparalleled with any other course.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

As one of our students, you have access to notes and homework assignments that can be downloaded from the website, as well as our forums where you can interact with other students and our instructors.

Whether your goal is to fly for recreation or as a career, Future Air is your best option. Let us help you reach your goals.

Golfers could spend a whole day at Brooklea Golf & Country Club without hitting the same shot twice. With 27 holes of tee-to-green terrain and a practice facility with a 300-yard driving range, a 6,000-square-foot chipping and putting green, and a short-game area with practice bunker, the complex gives golfers the chance to work on all facets of their game. As the course's grassy centerpiece, the 18-hole championship course unrolls 6,587 yards of tree-lined fairways and fast, bent-grass greens pinched by the occasional water hazard or bunker filled with silica sand. Measuring 1,750 yards, the 9-hole West course packs four par 4s and five par 3s into an abbreviated layout so players can conveniently squeeze a quick round into their schedule without drilling holes into their office floors. Head teaching professional Daryl Cramm helms the Brooklea Golf & Country Club academy, where students of all ages and abilities hone their par-hunting skills.

Beginning its life in 1907, The S.S. Keewatin traveled the Great Lakes from the bottom of Georgian Bay to the tip of Lake Superior. Along with a fleet of four other ships, the Keewatin transported passengers on the 2.5-day trip for 58 seasons before being retired and considering a nice summer home in Florida. Though modern in one sense—it was one of the first vessels to carry radar on the lakes—the Keewatin was brought down by its wood cabin construction and inability to keep up with the speed of more contemporary planes and trains.

Today, the ship survives in its permanent spot at Port McNicoll. Tours explore the passengers and crew's staterooms along with the more glamorous ladies' smoking lounge and a dining room of the Edwardian period. Below deck lies the Titanic-era 3,200 horsepower quadruple expansion steam engine that powered the great ship as well as its demure disco.
