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.
Commercial Tire sports multiple staffs of ASE-certified auto experts that keep vehicles in road-worthy condition through a variety of automotive services. Keep air in comfortable circulation with the air-conditioning tune-up, which preps A/C units for hot weather by making sure they blow air as cool as an igloo stocked with Ray-Bans. Cars that pull too much to one side can best benefit from the four-wheel alignment, which straightens out rides for vehicles with adjustable rear suspension. During the alignment, Commercial Tire's specialists take precise angle readings at all four wheels, calibrating the true and parallel position of a car's asphalt-kissing cylinders. They then set each car's rear thrust line to manufacturer specifications and center the steering wheel, leaving you free to drive home on a straight path without getting trapped in an endless circle inside a cul-de-sac.

After an unlucky coin-flip forced him to sell control of his own tire business, Frank Bruneel had no choice but to start anew. The initial loss turned out to be fortuitous in the long run, however. Now, after affiliating with a vast tire-supply network, his Bruneel Tire Factory boasts 10 locations with ready access to an expansive selection of rubber circles. Frank has leveraged expansion to diversify the company's services, with each location staffed by ASE-certified technicians who perform routine maintenance, align tires, replace worn shocks and struts, and service AC systems by rigging them to vent the prom king's breath.
Locally owned since 1928, Peterson's Stampede'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 7 quarts of nonsynthetic oil and a brand-new filter that leaves a car purring as smoothly as a kitten napping in a garbage disposal. 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 for their cars to be coddled 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.
