Description

Enjoy a breathtaking helicopter ride over Chicago for an incredible experience that will change your view of the city forever!

Upon arrival at the heliport, located just few minutes from the city center, you will be welcome for check in. Awaiting your flight, you will get the opportunity to explore and learn about Chicago's rich history at the 6,000sqft (557 sq meters) Customer Experience Center, featuring a great exhibit, a flight simulator, as well as interactive TVs and games for a fun, enjoyable atmosphere.

Finally, after safety and security checks and a pre-flight briefing, you will board the aircraft. While everyone else is roaming the city streets on foot, you will be flying high above in a comfort of a state-of-the-art helicopter with your expert pilot.

Discover the glistening Chicago skyline from above and get a bird's eye view of its soaring skyscrapers, iconic landmarks and beautiful lakefront.

Begin your adventure over Chicago's south shore, McCormick Place and along Lake Shore Drive. You will get the most unique perspective of Chicago's iconic architecture and famous sights, such as the Willis Tower, John Hancock Building, Navy Pier, Streeterville, Wrigley Field and so much more. Finally, you will fly along the picturesque beaches that line the shore before heading back to view the Magnificent Mile and returning back to the heliport.

Throughout the tour, your pilot will provide interesting facts about major Chicago landmarks and the city's centuries of history that even the locals probably don't know about.

Ideal for first-time visitors or locals renewing their love for the city, this is the perfect tour for discovering the grandeur of the Chicago skyline set against the blue expanse of Lake Michigan!
