The American Airpower Museum couldn't have a more appropriate setting. More than six decades ago, its grounds were home to Republic Aviation. Here, a formidable assembly line?nicknamed "the Jug"?churned out more than 9,000 P-47 Thunderbolts, which helped fortify the Air Force during World War II. Today, the American Airpower Museum displays Thunderbolts in honor of the brave pilots that flew them during those crucial years. And just like the dinosaur skeletons in a natural-history museum, these exhibits come to life?during warm months, Thunderbolts often taxi out onto the runway and take off to the delight of the crowd.
The skies around American Airpower Museum showcase other prop- and jet-powered aircrafts dating from WWII to the present day. Ground-level exhibits, meanwhile, show off more aircraft and military vehicles, including tanks. The resident pilots even offer ride-alongs in an AT-6 or Waco aircraft. Visitors can also test the controls of a Cessna 310 for themselves inside a custom-built simulator.
Beams of light dart through a darkened laser-tag arena. The delighted shrieks of youngsters emanate from the colorful horses of a carousel and a fleet of bumper cars. With these and over five other attractions onsite, Funzone Family Entertainment more than earns its name. Visitors smash home runs inside batting cages, or take on virtual opponents in a sports simulator complete with soccer, football, and a zombie-themed riff on dodgeball. More digital amusement awaits in an arcade stocked with classic games such as skeeball and Deal or No Deal, where players can win tokens by selecting the secret "Compromise" option. Open seven days a week, Funzone also caters to younger kids with bounce houses and a multi-level, maze-like play area full of tube slides and netted tunnels.
When teaching a new class of prospective pourers, the instructors at the New York Academy of Bartending aren't content to simply go over recipes and techniques. The classroom is itself styled like a bar, complete with rows upon rows of liquor bottles, cash registers, and a jukebox. Bathed in the glow of a neon Yuengling sign, students experience what it's like to be behind the bar as they learn drink recipes, garnish preparation, and how to dispense sage advice to hard-luck customers. These sessions prepare students for their first trial, where they get to try out their new skills on real customers at a local establishment. Following graduation, newly minted bartenders can make use of the academy's job-placement services.
At Icon Aviation Group, flying instructors put four kinds of light sport aircraft to good use training future pilots of all ages, young and old, for private pilot's licenses, instrument ratings, commercial flight instructor ratings, and airline transport ratings.

The aviation school couples its in-air instruction with classroom learning back on solid ground, where pupils can safely build confidence under the guidance and command of experienced pilots and work on honing their cabin-announcements voice.
