Three Thrilling Things You Can Learn To Do This Summer

Posted on: 28 May 2017

If you're someone who loves learning new things, and you are also a thrill seeker, then summer is a great time to take a class that will expose you to a fun and exciting new skill. The weather is warm, which makes it a great time to be outside and take a class that will expose you to a thrilling new pastime. Here's a brief overview of some of the different classes you can take.

Motorcycle Lessons

If you've always wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle, then the summer is a great time to get started. When you attend a motorcycle school, part of the instruction is classroom geared,  but part of it involves learning to ride. This means you need to get on the bike and ride around. Many motorcycle classes utilize big empty parking lots (often times at colleges or high schools that are closed for the summer). You can ride around on the asphalt without worrying about hitting into parked cards or having to deal with the danger of traffic on the street. All you have to do is bring a helmet (some schools might offer them, but check with the instructor before hand) and a copy of your learners permit.

Scuba Diving Lessons

If you are planning a vacation this summer, you might want to schedule a trip to a destination where you can take scuba lessons. There are lots of places in the Caribbean, as well as Florida, where you can take scuba certification lessons while on your vacation. However, even if you don't feel like taking a vacation, you can find lots of scuba lessons located around where you live. Many of them are held in large pools. You will learn the basics of regulators, tank operation, and other important issues that will help get you started in your scuba adventures.

Flight Training School

If your dreaming runs more towards the sky, and you've always wanted to learn how to fly a plane, then you don't have to dream anymore. There are aviation schools where you can learn to fly small, single-engine planes. Some of these aviation schools are geared towards complete novices who want to learn how to fly a plane and have never even worked with a sophisticated flight simulator before. The schools often offer short introductory courses that teach the basics of navigation and other vitals, as well as get you up in the air and behind the controls. For the first few sessions, there will be a trained pilot up there with you so that you don't have to worry about going solo at first. It's a super cool way to get exposure to flying.
