  • Rotor F/X
    Living up to their slogan "Excellence in Aviation," Rotor F/X runs the gamut of flight-related services by selling and repairing rotorcraft, in addition to offering flight training, transportation, and quick aerial tours of the Los Angeles area. As a prop company, Rotor F/X has a reputation of building believable cockpit mockups, aviation sets, and scale models of planes and helicopters. As a testament to their ability to enhance stunts, effects, and camera shots with their replicas, the crew of the History Channel's Modern Marvels asked them to construct a experimental helicopter that not only lifts up into the air, but travels back in time to prevent the original Star Trek from being canceled.

  • The Flight School at Van Nuys
    The Flight School at Van Nuys makes its home at Van Nuys Airport in the San Fernando Valley, where diverse airspaces present opportunities for training in a wide array of scenarios. Some 400,000 takeoffs and landings take place at VNY each year, so while it may not be LAX or Mission San Juan Capistrano, it certainly stays busy. Pilots-in-training must learn to navigate safely amid this flurry of aeronautical activity. Developing skills are put further to the test over the L.A. Basin just south of the airport, where complex airspace requires deft maneuvering and keen vigilance. For more room to roam, students can point the school's Piper and Cessna aircraft north of the airport and practice their navigation techniques in less cluttered airspace.

  • Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art
    Realizing their community's limited resources for foundational art education, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art was founded in 2002 as a portal for blossoming art students to sharpen skills with the help of talented, professional artists. Thus, an eclectic team of instructors took shape through a hand-selection process that yielded skill sets from the realms of fine art, entertainment, and paint-by-number calculus. Now in its 10th year of art education, the school—named a top 10 school worldwide by American Artist in Nov. 2011—acts as a springboard for students pursuing degrees in fine arts or the digitally driven video-game and film world of entertainment art. Individual classes afford à la carte education for beginning and advanced students of sculpture, drawing, painting, and illustration. Regardless of the field of study, LAAFA seeks to assist all students in completing advanced degrees at other institutions, accessing local art resources, and solving Van Gogh's tricky magic-eye series.
