Andres Kerllenevich began flying helicopters as a hobby while making a living as a lawyer. As time passed, he earned his license and left to fly tours over Alaska and New York City. He eventually settled in St. Augustine, the historical city where his wife fondly remembered vacationing as a child. Now, seven other FAA-certified pilots join him in leading tours over the coastal castles, historic lighthouses and colleges, and vibrant downtown areas of St. Augustine, Tampa, and the Florida Keys.
At the helm of Robinson R44 helicopters, the pilots soar at heights of up to 1,500 feet past Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Porpoise Point, and the towering red cross at the Mission of Nombre de Dios. They also guide tours above Tampa Bay, the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and the Florida Aquarium, while granting passengers glimpses of coastline populated by bottlenose dolphins. Pilots have also orchestrated aerial marriage proposals, during which the groom-to-be points out his question written on the beach or on a rooftop sign. The tours grant a bird's-eye view for photography and videography sessions.

Inside of Clean Getaway Car Wash's all-cloth tunnel, blasts of water and hot lathers of foaming conditioner rescue cars from dirt's widening grip. After sauntering through a parade of side blasters, super-sealer waxes, and Armor All tire shine, cars emerge from the other end of the tunnel with glowing finishes and tires so shiny they make red traffic lights blush. Technicians also perform detailing and carpet-cleaning services for cars, SUVs, motorcycles, and boats that require extra soap and attention. While vehicles shake off dirt, customers can kick back in the waiting lounge with snacks and drinks, or peruse the onsite convenience store for automotive accessories and gift items.
