A Sikorsky 300C training helicopter and fleet of Cessna 172 airplanes lift new aviators into the air during Airwork LLC's flight-training classes for both commercial and private pilots. Experienced instructors lead introductory flights that combine on-the-ground lessons with assisted flies, allowing students to get their wings wet as they learn a new skill that may someday translate into a career as an aerial photographer, movie stuntman, or raincloud repairman. Students keep track of their progress toward licensure in pilot logbooks, and Airwork also maintains a comprehensive online-training library with important documents and handbooks for both helicopter and airplane training.
Some of us will never know what it's like to have superpowers, but a day spent at GoFly Water Aviation offers a glimpse into the magic of human flight. By harnessing water-jet propulsion, GoFly's equipment gives aquatic pilots the power to soar up to 30 feet above the surface with enough control to perform flips and twists or dive into the water with the same speed and grace as a caffeinated dolphin.
GoFly's futuristic, airborne vessels take three forms: the flyboard, the Jetovator, and the hoverboard. All three of these vehicles derive their skygrazing power from a jet stream of high-pressure water attached via a long hose. For the flyboards, the streams shoot out from a pair of boots strapped to the feet, forcing pilots to maintain balance?and execute tricks?by flexing their legs. A trip on the Jetovator, by contrast, is like riding a flying motorcycle: after straddling the bicycle-like contraption, pilots steer with a handlebar as a rear jet provides enough thrust to sail through the air. Lastly, the hoverboard is like surfing above the waves; its surfboard-like platform shoots out water to lift a person high into the air, where they can execute tricks and accelerate to speeds of up to 25 MPH.
For all of these adventures, GoFly offers photo and video packages, letting thrill-seekers relive their experience in HD footage instead of hiring an old Greek poet to narrate the tale every time.
