We only had a couple of days in Chicago and the helicopter flight was a gift from our children for their father's 70th birthday. The helipad is fairly new, located downtown in the medical area, but our cab driver found it OK. Lovely reception area. Ryan our pilot was a lovely, friendly man and put us at our ease despite the helicopter being the smallest we'd ever seen!. It was an amazing experience flying around all the main areas of the city with Ryan pointing out places of interest and giving some background to many of them. Even though the day was overcast it didn't spoil the trip. The view from on high complemented the view from the lower level via a hop-on-hop-off bus trip. Would highly recommend the experience.

How fun and unusual, to fly OVER the city you are visiting. Even if you are from Chicago, as I am, it was great to take my Godson up and give him an experience he'll always remember. From the date of booking until the departure the team was helpful, organized and exuded confidence. Our pilot very personable and professional. I recommend this to most anyone who wants to 'do' the unusual.

1st day was overcast sky, but the customer service was excellent and so understanding. They asked us to come back any day any time during our trip and they would accommodate us. The staff was really friendly and the place was beautiful, really well managed and run. This is one of the largest helipads in the country - right in the heart of Chicago!
Our next day we got into the helicopter right away. Our pilot, Eric was awesome! He is a caring person, our kids loved him! The ride in itself is totally worth it - magnificent views over Chicago, Lake Mich, the Chicago river, all over downtown, the towers, Soldier Park - just breathtaking...it was for 15 mins but when you are up there and cruising it seems like a long ride. Happy landings in the end :
After the ride we went into the garage, saw the operations, took pictures...best thing we did in Chi town.
Kudos to the team there...highly recommend!
