Sir, Your Private Chopper Is Outside
Chopper tours from the city's first private heliport
Chicago by helicopter: strong first date.
Or second date. Or fiftieth.
The drive out to the suburbs to get to the choppa: unnecessarily long.
At least according to these guys: Chicago Helicopter Experience, the heli service that just opened the city’s first and only private heliport, taking reservations now.
CHE used to operate an hour out, in Wheeling — a drive longer than the flight itself.
Once you get there, it’s just a few minutes till your bird’s-eye to the city — taking a loop-the-loop from McCormick Place past Wrigley Field to Montrose Harbor and back again.
That’s a whole lot of ground and a whole lot of views.
In short, it’s a summer to-do. So, give ‘em a ring to book your journey. Daytime, sunset and nighttime flights are available.
Also worth noting: firework flights.
How’s that for a first date?
