Overview
Soar above the city lights of Chicago on a 15-minute nighttime helicopter ride with live narration by experienced pilots. Enjoy birds-eye views of downtown landmarks, then bank past Navy Pier to Lincoln Park and Uptown. Hear about the history of the city as you take in unforgettable views of downtown’s bristling skyscrapers, and see Willis Tower, Millennium Park and Soldier Field. This unique experience offers a once in a lifetime view of the Second City at its most stunning.
What to Expect

Chicago’s beauty is legendary. At night it’s positively magical. You'll remember our Night Tour’s stunning views of the glowing cityscape for years to come.

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! Marvel at the sparkling lights adorning the city as you glide through the night sky aboard one of our state-of-the-art helicopters. Catch Buckingham Fountain’s glimmering light show in the summer or Michigan Avenue ablaze at holiday time.Take in the majestic sight of glittering buildings along the lakefront.

You’ll see Navy Pier, luminous along the shoreline, colorful lights from magnificent skyscrapers reflecting onto the Chicago River, sparkling Millennium Park and Soldier Field. Fly along the coastline to view Chicago's famous Lincoln Park Zoo Lights festival, Lakeview, and historic Wrigley Field--home of the champion Chicago Cubs. As you glide across the city your pilot will share facts and folklore that bring Chicago to life.

You schedule a private flight, thus it will just be 2 people. But if you take the less expensive experience, there will be 6 people plus the pilot.
