Chicago Helicopter Experience provides the most spectacular and unique views of the world’s best skyline. Amazing panoramas of the city, scenic waterfront, and historic landmarks await you from the optimal vantage point in the sky.

You’ll glide through the air in one of our luxurious, state-of-the-art aircraft. Our experienced pilots are well versed in the lore of the city, which they’ll share throughout your 24-mile journey. You’ll marvel at breathtaking vistas of the skyline, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, Willis (Sears) Tower, John Hancock Center, Wrigley Field and so much more. Bring your camera for the optimal photo ops or get our GoPro to record your exhilarating adventure. Once you land, don’t forget to pick up the photo of you and your helicopter as a souvenir of your amazing event.
