Having honed his aviation skills in helicopter cockpits for 45+ years, the head pilot at Midwestern Helicopter leads a team of FAA–certified pilots in performing helicopter tours, charters, and pilot instruction. They steer a fleet of three Robinson R-44s and two R-22s over cityscapes and country vistas with photographers, pollinators, surveyors, or sightseers onboard, continuing a crash- and speeding-ticket-free record begun with the company's inception four years ago. The flight team acquaints new flyers with immediate actual flight experience during introductory flights and helps students to achieve private, commercial, and flight-instructor certification during FAA courses. As authorized merchants of Robinson aircraft, they can also hawk helicopters or perform maintenance on various models inside heated hangars without having to first notify the aircraft's next of kin.

Beverly Hills Limousine doesn't service the ritzy California neighborhood, but its star-studded resumé of past clientele, which boasts marquee names such as Elton John and Tom Hanks, proves that it doesn't have to: Beverly Hills finds its way into the chauffers' backseats. But the star treatment doesn't end with the star. Airport commuters, wedding and prom parties, and large groups of circus clowns trying to break from stereotype all receive the same professionalism from polished and punctual drivers, who pull up at clients' front doors in corporate sedans and a fleet of Chrysler and Hummer limos equipped with interior bars and sound and video systems. The drivers then navigate the roads while passengers sink in and enjoy the ride.
There are treasures beyond belief under the waves. All across the Midwest, lakes large and small contain pieces of history, from a moss-coated dump truck at the bottom of Haigh Quarry to the schooner Thomas Hume, which has been a home to the fish of Lake Michigan since 1891. With favorite wet spots from Missouri to Minnesota, the teachers at Chicagoland Scuba are privy to it all. Whether offering first-time divers certification classes, leading diving trips, or learning how fish like to be hugged, exploring the underwater life is second nature to these pros—something they hope rubs off on their students, too.
