Overview
On a daytime helicopter tour over Chicago, enjoy views of the city's famed architecture and other sights from the air. You'll fly over Willis Tower (the old Sears Tower), Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park, and more while a pilot provides commentary about the city as you go.
What to Expect

This once-in-a-lifetime experience takes you on an epic journey through Chicago’s amazing cityscape and rich history. You’ll depart from our downtown heliport, just minutes from the “Loop.”  Before your flight, enjoy fun facts on the history of Chicago and “pilot an aircraft” from the interactive flight simulator in our 6,000 square-foot guest center.

Then, take off!  Aboard one of our state-of-the-art helicopters you’ll experience unparalleled views of the world’s best skyline from the optimal vantage point in the sky. Capture one-of-a-kind photos from a unique perspective among Chicago's soaring skyscrapers and spectacular lakefront.

Day tours showcase the most popular city sites including Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, Wrigley Field--home of the Chicago Cubs--and many more. As you glide across the city your pilot will share facts and folklore that bring Chicago to life.

Not just for tourists!

I've been a Chicago resident for 10 years, and this tour was great! The pilot was informative and entertaining, and the helicopter was pleasantly cool on a scalding hot summer day. It was great to see my hometown from this new perspective. Thank you!

Was fun but overpriced

Everything was great but for 15 minutes up in the air and the price, not sure if I would recommend or say it was worth it. Especially as there are a lot of places in the city to see views of the city. I liked...More
