  • King George Aviation
    King George Aviation Flight School's squadron of instructors use their decades of combined experience to introduce novice pilots to the skies. Official licensing courses range from navigation and mountain flying to radio procedures or instructor ratings, and their Discovery flights give beginners a taste of the skies while proving to nonbelievers that clouds are, in fact, made of marshmallow. The school also rents its planes to pilots for day trips and sells certain models.

  • Vikki's Clay Art Studio
    Bisqueware-lined walls and buckets of bright paint await sparks of creativity to bring them into full-colour radiance. At Vikki's Clay Art Studio, artists first select an unfinished piece of pottery or a fused glass project-in-potentia, and then set to work with provided tools, patterns, stencils, and glazes to create their own unique piece. Expert supervision is always on hand as guests decorate pots or piece together cut glass under expert supervision. Once finished, the pieces disappear into the studio's kiln and emerge ready for pickup after about a week. Private parties let crafters socialize over glass or bisque art while testing out ideas for a set of risqué tea saucers on pals first.

  • Octopus Village
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our phone-based coaching means we can support you no matter where you are. All you need is a phone and 1 hour a week to begin to make long-lasting improvements in your's and you child's routines. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? You'll need to come into each weekly session with your commitment and desire to learn. We'll provide weekly worksheets, by email, that will be completed with your coach. We'll also provide support and encouragement along the way. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Having worked in childcare for 15 years, I was determined to bring a high level of care to raising my own child. After experiencing the frustration that only your own child can envoke, I was motivated to learn, and then teach, practical tools to make those daily struggles manageable or disappear. What do you love most about your job? It is so rewarding to hear parents tell me that they feel empowered, confident and enjoyment raising their child(ren). I love bring families closer to that image that they had "pre-kids" about what it would be like to have children. I also love learning something new from every family I work with.

  • Metropolitan Bartending School
    Micah, Luch, and Alicia of Metropolitan Bartending School draw on over a decade of bartending chops apiece to impart the art of alcoholic alchemy. Students enrolled in at-home or comprehensive certification courses might recognize Micah Dew as the resident drinkspert of the Province newspaper, or remember his dazzling “Extreme Bartending” performance of juggling and fire-breathing for a stunned Rachel Ray. Between also working a bartending job five nights a week at The Roxy Vancouver, Micah lends industry-veterans Luch and Alicia a hand in leading a lineup of diverse classes and workshops. The sessions range from wine-tasting seminars to Serving It Right certification, a legal necessity in British Columbia. All of these classes take place behind real bars at Metropolitan Bartending School's facilities, equipped with the most commonly used liquor bottles, a POS training-mode system for running tabs, and an animatronic priest, rabbi, and minister.

  • Academie Duello
    It's a fairly common image from the Middle Ages and from fairy tales: an armoured knight on horseback, riding triumphantly into battle wielding a sword. Today, of course, such a sight would have shocked witnesses almost immediately—unless they're at Academie Duello. A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived centuries-old scenes similar to the one above. It teaches students ancient battle techniques, but does not re-enact epic duels or the well-documented silly-string wars that ensued when swords broke. The 5,000-square-foot facility extracts skills and weapon information from authentic combat manuals and primary-source texts. Its instructors turn that knowledge into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs also help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers. To immerse themselves further into knighthood, students can check out Academie Duello's museum, which preserves an ever-growing collection of weapons of war, armour, and fight books.
