The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin, Kansas City, and Key West. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services.
The crew at Air Associates of Kansas helps pilots conquer gravity and take to the skies with maintenance and charter services and trains new flyers within its Cessna Pilot Center. Certified flight instructors put students behind the controls of Cessna aircraft and introduce them to the joys of soaring among clouds and nature's most persistent penguins. A computer-based curriculum assists the instructors as they help their pupils work through programs for attaining private, instrument, and commercial licenses.
In addition to their instructional services, Air Associates of Kansas' maintenance technicians can look after single-engine aircraft for already-certified pilots. The techs fuel up planes and make repairs while their clients relax in the lounge and wait to sprout feathers.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum trains fledgling spa and salon technicians in the ways of the scissors and the cucumber slice. These able aesthetician aspirants perform the Academy's variety of services under the watchful eye of a licensed and experienced instructor. With a customized facial treatment ($30), they'll replace your face's neon-green glow with a healthier radiance by cleansing, exfoliating, and balancing dizzy skin tissue. An acne-clearing treatment ($36–$40) targets and evicts any insurgent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed redheads that have been vandalizing your pores. Broken, tattered, or torn nails can be carefully repaired for $3, and more ambitious customers can luxuriate in a complete French manicure ($18–$19) before chasing it with a spa pedicure ($24–$25) in a throne chair salvaged from the spa in Tutankhamun’s tomb. A trained sculptor of scalp whiskers can tame your hairy head monster into a stylish new 'do ($7–$8), then color it ($28–$30) so that you blend in with the fall foliage and evade hungry ogres on quiet walks through the forest.
Fully loaded with Olympic-quality beams, bars, vaulting tables, a foam pit, and a 45-foot Tumble Trak, Kansas Gymnastics and Cheer spurs athleticism and fun for youngsters in its expansive 14,000-square-foot facility. With at least four years of experience at the gym, its instructors preside over small gymnastics classes for preschoolers and early-elementary kids and cheerleading classes for kids aged 5 and older. The recreational sessions teach children how to balance atop beams or roll across the floor with the grace of Russian tumbleweeds, and competitive cheerleading and gymnastics teams instill participants with the sportsmanship and drive to compete both locally and nationally.

At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.
