The team of flight-school instructors helps students to earn licenses as private or commercial pilots by showing them the ropes in the cockpits of R-22 or R-44 helicopters. During sightseeing tours, the Pocono Mountains, the New Jersey coastline, and the New York skyline sprawl out 1,500 feet below. Through the cockpit’s glassy bubble, the trees form impressionistic blurs, skyscrapers look like tiny spindles, and Godzilla’s underbite doesn’t seem that serious.
With their easy touch-screen instructions, the portable photo-booths of Reliable Photobooths Inc. capture images of jubilant attendees at events throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware with ease.
