Light Cessna planes soar over the rolling green fields surrounding Freeway Airport before making their landing at the FAA-approved repair-and-maintenance facility. Staffed by FAA technicians and certified flight instructors, the aviation center services professional pilots with 24-hour fuel access, charts and plates, and other pilot supplies, and also educates budding aviators in the art of flight. For almost 50 years, the training center has supported pilots in their quests for sport, recreational, private, and instrument licenses as well as advanced commercial flight certificates. Staff instruct pupils with toolssuch as a Redbird FMX with a 200-degree wraparound visual cockpit displayand up-to-10-week ground classes teach flight principles and the best jokes to tell during passenger-safety briefings. Alternatively, during hands-on discovery flights, they let students take the helm of light aircraft to experience basic flight under their watchful instruction.
The Auto Spa lavishes ordinary rides with the careful attention normally reserved for celebrity coupes and supermodel Ts. Your Ultimate Works Wash begins with a thorough, environmentally friendly wash, applied with soft cloths to prevent scratches, while an underbody flush rinses dirt and debris from your car’s sensitive underbelly. Wheels will be left looking shiny and new after a wheel blaster service and tire dressing, while a triple foam polish, spot-free rinse, and towel drying rid besmirched auto bodies of dirt and water spots, and also protect against unjust road-pirate mutiny. After locking in your car’s newfound radiance with a protective layer of sealer wax, the careful technician will then move inside, wiping down the dashboard, door jambs, and glass, before vacuuming all floor carpets, floor mats, and upholstery to rid them of dirt, dust, and hibernating marmots.
The automotive MDs at Tint Doctor hand-cut tinted films to fit snugly on windows and windshields. Drivers can choose from tint levels that range from 5% to 50% and leave their car in the trusted hands of the technicians, who will then cover the glass with high-performance films. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, tinted film blocks harmful UV rays and prevents interior upholsteries from fading, drivers from burning, and bobble-heads from stripping down to their skivvies. The docs can also remove unwanted tints and glue without risk of damaging or scratching the glass.
The nautical-themed Pirates Car Wash substitutes the rough seas for delicate wash tunnels whose ebb and flow of soft cloths, eco-friendly cleaning solutions, and microfiber towels bring land vessels to a pampered state of cleanliness. The long reaches of brushless towels and sheets of soap leave underbodies flushed of harmful residue, windows gilded by Rain-X repellants, and chrome as polished as a card shark's lucky cheat mirror. For cars that require more attentive grooming, detailers stand at the ready to dip into the latticework of grills, vents, and panels with waxes and steam cleaners. Pirates Car Wash also offers unlimited wash plans and runs fundraising referral programs that send proceeds to nonprofit organizations.
