After purchasing their first limo—a 1965 Cadillac Factory Formal—in 1978, the dedicated valets, chauffeurs, and technicians at Westwind began to build a fleet of stretch Jeeps, shuttles, and buses. Today, their shiny stretch vehicles tote passengers to and from the airport while customers’ cars rest safely in the comfort of a garage that’s heated to reduce potential cold-weather car troubles or strange sniffling noises from the engine. While lodging at Westwind, vehicles may be treated to life-extending maintenance or beautifying detail treatments as skilled technicians switch out old motor oil or buff and polish paint jobs. The garage’s luxurious lineup of shuttles, vans, and limos transports guests in style, whether carrying commuters to the airport in a limo or celebrating a wedding with a 14-passenger stretch SUV.
When you're on a tight schedule, the last thing you want to do is spend time trying to find a parking spot. This is especially true when you have a flight to catch, which is why the team members at Park-N-Go Airport Parking make getting to your terminal as easy as possible. They offer both valet and self-service parking in their well-lit lot, with gates open and monitored 24 hours a day so clients know they and their cars are safe at all hours. Once cars are parked, staff helps clients carry their bags to the shuttle, which delivers fliers safely to Dayton International Airport in four minutes. The staff also can complete optional services to keep cars in prime condition while clients are away, such as changing oil, washing exteriors, or fully detailing vehicles. Clients who opt for the valet service even have their car prepared for their arrival, with attendants ensuring their ride is free of morning breath and the perfect temperature for the ride home.
The certified flight instructors at Aviators Flight Academy have been helping fledgling pilots earn their wings for more than three decades. Students take off from Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport toward the earth’s giant blue tarp using the academy’s fleet of Cessna and Piper fixed-wing aircraft, performing basic maneuvers under a teacher’s expert supervision. Beyond introductory lessons, students can also enroll in the flight-training school to earn their license and finally be able to impersonate pilots at airport bars.
Motortoys’ fleet features fun extras such as colorful custom lighting, barware, and high-end audio systems. Capacities range from 4 people for a Rolls-Royce or a Lincoln Town Car to 25 for party buses with on-board restrooms. The drivers are employees, not independent contractors, and their service won The Knot’s Best of Weddings award in 2011. Motortoys also partners with area businesses to offer its passengers discounts on meals, waived cover charges, and lifetime supplies of velvet rope.
Despite the shop’s short menu–just frozen yogurt and yogurt-based treats–no two trips to Yagööt are alike. Every few months, the shop shakes up its frozen-yogurt lineup, swapping in two new seasonal flavors to complement the Original and Strawberry yogurts available year-round. So, while one visit may have yielded a sweet cup of fresh raspberries and Strawberry fro-yo, the next could treat taste buds to an entirely different experience, perhaps caramel-drizzled Italian Cocoa or Oreos crumbled over Pomegranate yogurt.
