Living up to their slogan "Excellence in Aviation," Rotor F/X runs the gamut of flight-related services by selling and repairing rotorcraft, in addition to offering flight training, transportation, and quick aerial tours of the Los Angeles area. As a prop company, Rotor F/X has a reputation of building believable cockpit mockups, aviation sets, and scale models of planes and helicopters. As a testament to their ability to enhance stunts, effects, and camera shots with their replicas, the crew of the History Channel's Modern Marvels asked them to construct a experimental helicopter that not only lifts up into the air, but travels back in time to prevent the original Star Trek from being canceled.
Though they operate more than 200 locations in upwards of 30 states, the team behind U.S. Baseball Academy aims to make each young athlete's experience a personal one. Their four- or six-week camps are taught by local instructors who are current or former coaches at the high school or college level, and typically offer a 6:1 or better player-to-teacher ratio for intense, professional-style training. The Academy's proven itinerary of hitting, pitching, fielding, and baserunning drills was developed by an advisory board of college coaches and Major League players, including Cy Young Award?winner and ace pitcher Brandon Webb.

Strapped under 30-foot wings, students at Windsports Soaring Center work with instructors to fly as far as 100 yards on their first day.

In addition to helping students trespass on bird territory, Windsports Soaring Center also sells flying equipment and coordinates flight trips for experienced gliders.
Since 1979, Nova Storage has kept prized possessions safely stowed away from prying crowbars. Nova's knowledgeable staff will help find the safest place for homeless chattels, setting up your stuff with two months of storage in a unit as large as 100 square feet. The empty space can be stuffed with whatever your basement doesn't want—souvenirs from golden years, seasonal clothes, or hope chests filled with rejected Garbage Pail Kids concepts. The facility's storage fortresses are well lit, gate-secured, monitored by a computer, and designed for drive-around access, allowing Nova-provided dollies and carts to take the stress and strain out of the short trip from the truck.
