  • Rainbow Ryders
    Fire and wind: that’s all it takes to fly. Hot air ballooning’s sheer simplicity sparked pilot Scott Appelman’s interest in the sport 30 years ago. “In a lot of ways, it’s the exact opposite of the way the world is today,” says the Rainbow Ryders, Inc. founder. “And I think that gives it a certain degree of romance.” Further evidence of ballooning’s inherent romance can be found in the number of proposals and weddings that have taken place aboard Rainbow Ryders’ fleet of 19 balloons, earning the company a spot on Yahoo’s list of top five places in the nation to pop the question. Even if engagement is not on passengers’ agendas, the crew still strives to ensure a memorable expedition. Guests can join the launch crew to help inflate the balloon before takeoff, and upon landing, pilot and passengers clink glasses in a champagne toast to celebrate another successful flight. Though whimsy and romance may prove the biggest draw, Rainbow Ryders’ untarnished safety record is what ultimately keeps the balloons hovering. Since 1982, experienced pilots have safely floated 160,000 people over the Rio Grande Valley. Pilots not only helm top-tier equipment, but carefully monitor the region’s weather patterns to ensure smooth thermal drafts and minimize hitchhiking requests from migrating geese.

  • Safe US, Ryan Fellows
    Lots of kids start their own lawn-mowing business to earn extra cash. For 12-year-old Ryan Fellows, every neighbor's yard he cut put him closer to buying a shotgun so he could go hunting with his cousins, uncles, and grandfather. As the outdoorsy young man continued hunting, he also dabbled in competitive rifle shooting with his high school's JROTC team. Combining his advanced marksmanship skills with his love of martial arts, Ryan went on to earn multiple training certifications—awarded from institutions such as the state, NRA, and Glock—and applied them toward his own training business, as well as his post of director of US operations for SAFE International. A self-professed "epitome of an entrepreneur," he also works as a professional photographer. His portfolio is loaded with sports-action shots and portraits of celebrities such as Luciano Pavarotti and Jamie Lee Curtis looking as contemplative and approachable as less-famous people.

  • Enchanted Air Paragliding
    Chuck Woods has spent nearly 35 years learning to appreciate the world from a bird's eye perspective. At Enchanted Air Paragliding, he and his staff share this experience with newcomers and dedicated enthusiasts alike. Their tandem flights allow visitors to briefly touch the sky during jaunts that can last as long as 20 minutes and reach heights of up to 2,000 feet. A certified instructor maintains control for most of the flight—manning the controls during takeoff, landing, and the in-flight movie—although they invite passengers to steer the canopy for at least a portion of the time. Safety is of paramount importance during their tandem flights, and this sentiment is embraced even more emphatically by the instructors who lead the flight-training programs. During these programs, they teach aspiring pilots all of the skills they need to eventually become certified paragliders themselves.

If students should choose to pursue a Private Pilot Certificate, they have access to a fleet of Certified Light aircraft by manufacturers such as Piper, Cessna, and Grumman American, as well as the invaluable advice and guidance of their trusted instructors.
