The crew of FAA-certified pilots at Flying Lessons Philadelphia are eager to welcome students into the ranks as a recreational or commercial aviator. The school's flight curriculum equips these aspiring aces with all the necessary tools and skills outlined by the Federal Aviation Administration, administered through hands-on experience in the cockpit, ground school, and a mandatory screening of Wings. Those still undecided about committing to the full process can try out a 30-minute Discovery Flight, during which, students will get the chance to take control of the aircraft.
Since the early 1940s, Hortman Aviation Services Inc. has carried on the passion of its founders, the Horton family, which has included pilots for commercial lines, crop dusting, and the U.S. Air Force.

In addition to charters, the crew combines airtime, ground training, and practice in a flight simulator when guiding students in the CFR part 141 flight school.
It's been more than 30 years since Kay Rudolph opened Kay’s Act II Dance Studio, and that was as a second act to the original Kay's School of Dancing, which debuted in 1948. Though her equally talented daughter Kathleen Rudolph Ross has since taken the studio's reins, she and her team of professional ballerinas, tap dancers, and a former Sixers Dancer maintain Kay's legacy as they teach dance classes for kids as young as two and a half, all the way up to 18. Students and twirl their way through ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, or lyrical dance.
Grandmaster Dennis Tosten founded the first Amerikick in 1967 and has since taught several champion fighters, police officers, and everyday students karate and self-defense. Today, the lauded chain teaches fitness classes inspired by martial arts, including cardio kickboxing in six states. Each location upholds a curriculum that blends Chinese and Japanese martial-arts styles—including kenpo and tae kwon do—with modern self-defense strategies, further updating traditional practices by eschewing uniforms and belts for casual workout gear. Having attained certification in teaching kickboxing from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, Amerikick's seasoned instructors also each possess black belts in karate, a rank as difficult to attain as the snake charmer's belt of live cobras.
