FlyBoys Flight Centers pairs an FAA-certified instructor with aspiring high-flyers, who choose between a Cessna 172 or Piper Archer for an exhilarating ride high above the Earth. With the two-hour introductory flight lesson, gravity-defying novices start with a briefing, which preps them on the flight plan, maneuvers, and safety precautions. Clients take an airboat into the sky, as the teacher turns the reins over to the pilot-in-training for a 40-minute frolic where the aerial student performs gentle turns and skywrites angry letters to the edtior.
Ron Carroll's fascination with helicopters began in Vietnam, when the aircraft transported him and his fellow infantry through the jungles to the front lines. Two Purple Hearts, nearly 20 years, and a stint in the publishing industry later, Carroll happened upon a copy of Flying magazine and his interest quickly rekindled. He continued with flying lessons, deepening his desire to become a helicopter pilot.
Today, Carroll possesses a Gold Seal CFI certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and helms a team of three pilots with more than 25,000 combined hours of flight experience. With a fleet comprising Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters—as well as a TruFlite H flight simulator that lets aspiring pilots practice operating a helicopter while singing and without leaving the ground—the team has trained throngs of airmen, including Governor Sonny Perdue.
The Historic Oakland Cemetery basks in its beautiful gardens, sculptures, and architecture with displays of elegant funerary art. The 90-minute guided walking tour takes the cemetery’s visitors on a serene jaunt through the historic graveyard to see its sights and to listen to stories of its remarkable history. The cemetery forms an outdoor museum of Atlanta’s history, with residents representing all of the area's social classes and ethnic backgrounds. Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With the Wind, rests in Oakland, along with many other notable people, including Bishop Wesley John Gaines, former slave and founder of Morris Brown College; Ivan Allen Jr., mayor of Atlanta from 1962–1970; and nearly 3,000 unknown soldiers.
