When choosing an airline to fly with, passengers can bypass airports’ long security lines and inflexible schedules by taking to the skies with Siegel Aviation, LLC. As an FAA-certified air-charter company, Siegel can access more than 1,500 airports nationwide—three times as many airports as traditional airlines—with their charter aircraft, a compact Cessna 421 with seating for up to six. Alternatively, aviation students can earn credentials ranging from a Private Pilot Certificate to an Air Transport Pilot Rating with the company’s flight lessons, which instructors can tailor to students’ personal flight goals. For clients seeking their own airborne adventures, or hoping to upgrade their houseboat to a houseplane, the company doubles as an aircraft brokerage, with a location at David Wayne Hooks Airport.
BlueWave Express' car-wash system delicately transforms automobiles from dingy to dazzling through meticulous cleansings. During the Ultimate Wave road warriors get a soapy wash with a soft cloth, a spot-free rinse, and a moisture-zapping dry. A double-bond sealant with teflon protects paint for up to 30 days, and a tire dressing makes wheels more appealing to picky eaters. A coat of Simoniz triple polish leaves car exoskeletons shinier than a penny fresh from the Abe Lincoln face-shrinking factory. Guests can rid car interiors of dirt and dust free of charge with BlueWave Express’s powerful vacuums.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
