Helicopter Tour

Vertiport Chicago - Private Heliport

A helicopter flight is an unique experience which can not be described in words.

The downtown helicopter is not always guaranteed private but can be made fully private on the reservation page.

The approximate flight time and path varies. You can see an approximate flight map of the path we take on the left.

A scenic flight around downtown Chicago in a HELICOPTER at 2000 feet and slow enough to observe the lights and details of our beautiful city. The flight will depart from the Vertiport Chicago heliport terminal. After takeoff the pilot will turn East toward the lake shore and within minutes you will be experiencing THE most unique view of the Chicago Skyline. Whether you are a Chicago native or a tourist visiting Chicago for the first time, this is an experience not to be missed.

Points of interest that your pilot will point out during the tour:

  • Northerly Island (formerly Meigs Field)
  • The Planetarium
  • The Field Museum
  • Soldier Field
  • Millennium Park
  • Navy Pier
  • The Sears Tower
  • The John Hancock building

Helicopters can accommodate more than two passengers, sometimes we will place more passengers on your flight. If you would like to make your flight private, and exclusive to you and your significant other you can select to make that flight private on the add to cart page.
