The Euro American School of Aviation certifies professional pilots with its top-notch fleet, as well as its own buildings, hangars, simulators, and more. With this deal, you'll get a 30-minute trip soaring above the Earth's staid surface in a Cessna 150, letting aspiring Charles Lindberghs gain first-time experience in cloud maneuvering. A friendly, experienced instructor will provide basic tutelage on how various pedals, levers, and flashing red "do not press unless inside a volcano" buttons work. After the aeronautic adventure, pupils receive a ground-school class, where their brains will be reacclimated to normal air pressure and filled with additional info on the basics of aviation. The class is intended as the first step in a greater vocational education, with many students eventually going on to careers with elite airlines.

Amateur surfers are a lot like newborn fawns: they’re wide-eyed, full of life, and not so great at standing. That’s why head instructor and founder of Surfari Surf, Rick Gehris—along with his team of seasoned instructors—begins every first-time lesson by introducing a simple, achievable goal: stand. To increase the chances of success, Gehris and his instructors—well versed in Hawaiian, Californian, and Floridian surfing methods—hop right into the water to assist students as they cut into the waves. The instructors hang off the tails of their surfboards, stabilizing each board and repositioning students until they’re ready to take to the open water and try out their pickup lines on the nearest, cute-enough dolphin.
In addition to surf lessons and camps, instructors also show off their athletic prowess during standup-paddleboard lessons, which often are supplemented by independent board rentals.
