Where are you located?

We are located at 2420 s Halsted Chicago, IL  just minutes from the heart of the city and steps from the “EL”. Once you are checked in you can explore and learn about Chicago’s rich history in our 6,000 sqft Customer Experience Center.

What do I need to fly?

Safety is always our #1 priority. Because of that, there are a few things you will need to know before booking your trip.

  1. Weights of all members of your party – Helicopters require even weight distribution so, in order to ensure safety make sure you have those handy when booking.
  2. When you fly you will need a valid ID at check-in and will need to store all your personal possessions in one of our secure lockers

How long is the tour?

We require all passengers to be here 30 minutes prior to flight time to get through the check-in and safety briefing process.  Tours are roughly 15 minutes of flight time.  All in, you should budget about an hour to spend with us and we promise it will be well worth your while.

What if there's bad weather?

The old saying is if you don’t like the weather in Chicago wait for 5 minutes. We use state of the art atmospheric monitoring tools to ensure that every ride is as safe and of the best quality possible here are a few things to remember…

  1. We will do everything we can to notify you before your flight time if we are expecting delays or cancellations
  2. You will not be charged any fees for weather based cancellations or reschedulings
  3. We will do everything within our power to get you rescheduled and flown the same day
  4. If we can’t fly you and you can’t reschedule a full refund will be granted

If you are here and the weather unexpectedly takes a turn for the worse in the short term, we are located on the cusp of 3 of Chicago’s most exciting neighborhoods, Bridgeport, Pilsen, and Chinatown. There is so much to do within 5 minutes of the heliport so ask the terminal staff for suggestions.
