  • Gt Aviation
    The FAA-certified flight instructors at GT Aviation, LLC?launch novice pilots safely skyward during each lesson. Students begin in the brick-and-mortar flight school, where teachers versed in the FAA curriculum impart basic knowledge of plane instruments and functions. Pupils then hop into the cockpit of an aircraft for an hour of in-flight training, taking the controls, revving the engine, and singing "Danger Zone" as they ascend into the atmosphere. Upon cresting the clouds, high fliers swoop over the Potomac River while honing navigation skills under the instructor's watchful eye. The lesson whets appetites for adventure in the wild blue yonder, and allows prospective pilots to test their mettle and develop witty in-flight banter before beginning the journey toward complete FAA certification.

  • SJ Koch Electric Boats
    S.J. Koch Duffy's electric boats are eco-conscious, as they don't burn any fuel. Emitting zero emissions, the 22- and 18-foot rental boats provide breathtaking views upon departure from any of the company's two regional watery locales. Based on the harbor of choice, renters can take the canopied vessels floating by Annapolis's US Naval Academy, along the waterfront restaurants of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. On board, a built-in stereo system emits an energetic score to each renter's adventure. Duffy's website claims the boats are as easy to drive as a golf cart, but also offers training for new drivers. Self-propelled adventures are also popular, as the company also rents paddleboats and kayaks.
