The experienced pilots and capable ground crew at Horizon Helicopter welcome flight seekers to their state-approved helicopter training facility. The school's top pilots offer an introductory flight lesson that guides hoverbird mimickers through all the checks and balances of airborne operation. The FLYIT Professional Helicopter Simulator keeps flyers grounded as they learn piloting techniques, including instrument operation and positional awareness; all hard-mounted switches and controls replicate those in the real aircraft, including operational gumball machines and Wright Brother bobble heads. The combined effect of wide views and the simulator’s accurate imitation of translational lift and torque transports pilot apprentices into the wild blue yonder without fear of cabin-pressure ear pops. Following this 30-minute simulation, pilot pros will set sail above the clouds with rookies in tow for 30 more minutes, allowing novice fingers a chance to twirl the dials and steer the helicopter's course through the sky.

When record amounts of water from Tropical Storm Henri ravaged Red Clay Valley, it left six historic bridges destroyed and reduced the 10-mile Wilmington & Western Railroad to a mere two miles. The railroad is no stranger to change—since officially opening for passenger and freight service in 1872, the approximately 20-mile track was gradually shortened before beginning to escort tourists on steam-powered jaunts in 1966. Through all its transformations, the rail has persevered, and its encounter with Tropical Storm Henri was no exception. By June 30, 2007, the track was restored and Royal Blue coaches followed a locomotive 98 for the first 10-mile journey on the track in nearly four years.

These days, Wilmington & Western Railroad's locomotives continue to follow Red Clay Creek on leisurely round-trip jaunts, romantic rides, and themed excursions. After their ride, youngsters can learn about railroading heritage with a series of online games, and individuals or groups can charter a train for subsequent travels to any destination along the line.

Whenever a customer at Payless Parking calls for a shuttle, it's guaranteed that the company's sleek, silver van will arrive to pick them up within 10 minutes. The parking service shuttles its customers to and from Philadelphia International Airport and ensures this prompt arrival whether the customer is waiting at the garage counter or just woke up from a power nap on the baggage-claim carousel. While their owners are away, cars are kept locked in a secure, gated area. During this time, staff technicians can keep each vehicle in top condition with hand washes, oil changes, and tire rotations. To aid those who have arrived in Philadelphia but haven't brought a car, Payless Parking also operates a rental service. The service oversees eight vehicle makes and models, each of which are primed for pickup with a hand wash.
