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.

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.
