A.T.C. Flight Training Center has guided fledgling pilots through the skies with FAA-certified instruction since 1991, emphasizing good judgment, quick decision making, and practical skill. With approval from the Secret Service and FBI, and permission slips signed by their mothers, the seasoned instructors teach their flight courses in an airborne classroom high above the Potomac River. They lay out a clear path for students to earn FAA private-pilot certification through classroom lectures, hands-on flight instruction, and the Jeppesen ground and flight syllabus. Flight lessons aboard the center's two Cessna 172 planes cover basic flight techniques, such as fending off territorial weather balloons, before moving on to jaunts to other airports, night flying, and more advanced skills.
Already experienced pilots can instead embark on leisurely trips in a Cessna 182, outfitted with GPS navigation and autopilot. At the center's shop, staffers further outfit pilots with headsets, charts, and approach plates, as well as ASA training materials, aviation books, and films about flight.

The stockroom at Best Auto Glass carries more than one million auto glass parts. While it?s hard to imagine the variety of windows, windshields, tints, and wiper blades for countless vehicle makes and models, one thing is clear?coming in for glass or mirror repairs or replacements means same-day service and a true match.
Among the company?s common repairs perfected over 10-plus years in business is windshield cracks. Before a windshield chip spiders into a crack, Best?s certified glass techs fill it with a resin to preserve its integrity. If the chip has already cracked, they carefully pop the windshield out and plug in a new, factory-authorized one. They also repair glass regulators when side windows become troublesome to roll up or down and can cleanly peel away old tinting from windows. Two locations conveniently serve the DC area, and techs also offer mobile services to areas such as Stafford, Ashburn, Silver Spring, and all of DC.
Rivers are difficult to navigate without a watercraft or a fish tail, which is why the owners of Rivershore Charters launched their 50-foot pontoon boat, the Miss Rivershore, to provide customers an enjoyable way of experiencing the scenic Occoquan River, a river banked by lush, flourishing greenery and stately homes. Available for private charters, fishing excursions, and bird-watching tours, the Miss Rivershore accommodates up to 38 passengers, as it floats down the Occoquan, and the Riverloop holds up to 60 people.
During relaxed jaunts downriver, as eagles, ospreys, and herons patrol the skies or trick raccoons into selling their valuables for a song, the ship's captain relates historical anecdotes and intriguing tidbits about landmarks.
