Dreams take flight in the most literal of ways at New Horizons Aviation, where professional pilots strap into one of seven winged vessels and dart across the skies with budding aviators in tow. Based inside the cozy hangars of Reading Regional Airport, the flight school relies on a comprehensive instructional program known as Flight Training 101, which unites rigorous training with a flexible approach. The program’s innovative progress tracking system measures students’ skills as they advance through basic tasks such as taxiing the plane along the runway, taking off, and skydiving for the pilot’s license that instructors throw overboard once airborne. In addition to flight instruction, New Horizons Aviation offers aircraft rental, aerial photography, and a pilot shop stocked with essential parts and accessories.
The 18-hole course at Chapel Hill guides golfers along lush fairways framed by dense tree lines and confronted by water on 11 holes. Six holes—beginning with No. 1—demand precise course-management skills when navigating shots around the stream that cuts through their fairways, demanding that players lay up, muscle their shots over, or swap their golf ball out for a beach ball. Laid end-to-end, the course measures 6,089 yards from the blue tees, the farthest of four available for play on each hole.

After spending years teaching students from the seventh grade to the postgraduate level, Dr. Raymond and Eileen Huntington opened their eponymous learning center in 1977 with one simple mission: give every individual the best education possible. They crafted a robust curriculum that could cater to any academic need, set a code of ethics for their instruction, and hired a cadre of like-minded tutors to help pupils excel in school.
It’s a formula that has proven successful: today, the accredited center’s hundreds of locations hone skills in subjects ranging from basic phonics to calculus. The center's six-step tutoring system also involves parents in the process, building a unique program for each child that nurtures their sense of accomplishment. Test preparation helps applicants confidently take exams for admission to high school, college, or Starfleet.
