Silverhawk Aviation’s owner, Catherine Rad Weber, built a school not only to teach people how to fly, but to learn to love their wings as well. Her comprehensive curriculum challenges students to fly at high altitudes, in different weather conditions, and over diverse terrain, training helicopter pilots who will be comfortable in the cockpit anywhere in the world. The program includes hands-on experience in caring for the rides, moving them in and out of hangars, and safely washing them without getting soap in their eyes.
Whether training or touring, visitors receive eyefuls of southern Idaho’s diverse geological features. The helicopters surmount rugged mountains, speed over mesas and high deserts, and ride air currents above rivers that wend their way into deep canyons. Apart from stunning the brain’s beauty receptors, this splendor provides a natural obstacle course against which more experienced pilots test their skill, zipping around rock spires or hopping the feet of their craft neatly through pristine fields of tire plants.
Metro Express Car Wash's drive-thru shower quickly and effectively cleanses chariots of grime, from exterior to undercarriage and tires. The five-minute sudsing treats road warriors to a triple-foam polish and full-body protectant, restoring the fresh-faced glow cars had when their owners first brought them home from the nursery. The speedy but thorough buggy bath also includes a two-step wheel cleaning and tire-gloss treatment, which buffs lackluster rims until they sparkle. Further, an undercarriage rinse and rust inhibitor eliminate underbody dirt build-up and rinse away hitchhikers clinging to the undercarriage. Free vacuum services allow owners to maintain their autos' inner beauty. Metro Express Car Wash is open seven days a week despite adverse weather conditions or unforeseen robot uprisings.
Stampede Quicklube's trained auto up-keepers have been resuscitating steel horses of most makes and models for more than 80 years. Quench your vehicle's thirst with up to 5 quarts of nonsynthetic oil and a brand-new filter that leaves cars running as smoothly as a curling stone gliding over a greased-up weasel's back. During the 30-minute service, dissipating fluids are topped off and system functions are scrutinized by experienced car-keepers to ensure optimal operations. Sloppy jalopies then bask in a cleansing car wash, shedding the road-collected remnants of dust, dirt, and grime. After the wash, vacuums scour the interiors of the vehicle, gobbling up crumbs and debris. Customers waiting during their car's pampering can lounge in the clean facility while using complimentary WiFi to catch up on emails or subdue separation anxiety by scrolling through their car's Flickr account.

Service concludes with a topping-off of all fluids and a brief bath.
