Instructed by a decorated pilot and FAA Safety Team Representative, Alpha Zulu LLC students pitch the easy-to-fly Beechcraft Skipper toward the stratosphere during one-hour introductory flights. Over a 30-minute informational session prior to the flight, the instructor—author of a comprehensive aircraft-maintenance guide—familiarizes yearling cloud hoppers with control panels, preflight checks, and the proper etiquette for conversing with eagles. During the ensuing hour, customers gaze down at a shrinking Fleming Field as they adjust the rudder and shift altimeter needles under their own control. Once landing gear is safely back in the grips of the runway, students take home a video recording of their flight, which may be used to review their lesson or to terrify an acrophobic VCR.

When Max Schneiderman began his family’s business, it was a grocery store first and foremost. Then Schneiderman’s began to carry a few furniture items and slowly these grew to overshadow the cans of soup and produce until the furnishings finally swallowed the foodstuffs whole.
Now, Schneiderman's Furniture has spread from the Iron Range to spots throughout the Twin Cities. The showrooms stock local and foreign furniture from more than 100 manufacturers.
