Exec 1 Aviation's professional flight instructors lead discovery flights, which take prospective aviators to the cloud kingdom to show the thrill and ease of flying a plane. Over the course of the one-hour discovery flight, prodigal pilots will experience the thrill of liftoff without the time investment in flight academy or the empty promises of moon shoes. The air chariot is a Cessna 172 two-seater aircraft with bench seating in the back, good for up to two additional passengers or one looking to take a high-altitude snoozer. Fliers who want the view without the responsibility can opt to have their instructor take the helm. With this mini flight school, aviation junkies curious about earning their wings can take the first step, and those just giddy about gliding with cloud goats can achieve the experience with the throttle in their hands.

Ankeny Auto Spa 's environmentally safe scrubbing products rescue roadsters of all types from the perils of road pollution. During the full-body-bath wash, technicians scrub your horseless chariot from top to bottom, removing road salt, chemical buildup, gritty dirt, and gobs of caramel that resulted from sharing taffy apples with birds through the sunroof. Cars will also be treated to a dust exorcism via an interior wipe down of the dashboard, doorjambs, and console, along with a floor vacuuming and inside window wash. Afterward, Ankeny Auto Spa's dust-and-grime-obliterating car cleaners give each metal steed's newly shimmering steel an extensive towel drying by hand.

Bill Graham founded the first Graham Tire location in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in 1951, a time before dashboards blinked with digital readouts or engines buzzed with microchip brains. As cars have progressed, Graham Tire has kept pace. Still overseen by the Graham family, the current 22 locations employ ASE-certified mechanics who mend and maintain cars, trucks, SUVs, and farm equipment. Computerized engine analysis reveals rides’ performance levels and any problems, allowing the technicians to efficiently diagnose trouble without resorting to good mechanic, bad mechanic interrogations.

When Clint Dudley founded Shade Tree Auto more than a decade ago, he had one guiding principle: any auto shop worth its weight in carburetors should be able to repair any vehicle, regardless of its make or model. The ASE-certified technician’s new shop proved to be a roaring success with local drivers—so much so that it quickly outgrew its small garage and was forced to relocate to a larger facility. Now, at the AAA-approved shop’s current location, Dudley and his crew of master technicians perform preventative maintenance and repairs on cars, trucks, motor homes, and podracers with busted 8-track decks. Though they hold themselves to the high standards of yesteryear’s repair shops, Shade Tree Auto’s technicians feel right at home in today’s automotive landscape as they wield computerized tire-balancing tools and similarly advanced technologies. An old-fashioned sense of customer service compels them to offer a warranty on all of their services and provide a complimentary shuttle to anyone in their local area. Women can head to the garage on select evenings to participate in the Ladies Night Out Crash Course, in which experts demonstrate how to navigate insurance policies and safely jump a car over the Grand Canyon.
