Royal Glass, a 40-year veteran of quality glass repair, employs skilled technicians and follows an in-house policy to return every vehicle to its pre-purchased Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Handy staffers stabilize up to three dings in the glass surface, securing the damage caused by rocks, debris, or vengeful lawnmowers. The service stabilizes the damage before it can grow into large, untreatable cracks, and restores visibility for the driver. A headlight restoration yields lucid illumination after technicians tend to soiled lenses and remove light-obstructing films, residues, and cynical philosophies. Clear lenses allow bulbs to project their brightest rays forward, keeping roads properly lit so drivers can safely navigate dark streets.
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.

Glass technicians mend up to three small chips in automotive windows, restoring the glass's optical clarity by up to 95% while preventing spidering and further damage.

Though the cost of a full window replacement varies by the make and model of each vehicle, Prestige Auto Glass charges $370 for mid-level full replacements.
