CHICAGO HE­LI­COPTER EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

One too many traf­fic jams prompted Trevor Hef­fer­nan to

get his he­li­copter-pi­lot li­cense. A few amaz­ing aerial im­ages later, and friends were clam­or­ing to hitch a ride. This, in turn, led him to launch Chicago He­li­copter Ex­pe­ri­ence and the first pri­vate down­town he­li­port. From this spot, vis­i­tors lif t up into the wild blue yon­der for a flight along the lake­front, over Lake Michi­gan north to Wrigley Field and then south back down to the he­li­port. Plus, these aren’t any ol’ copters; they’re cli­mate-con­trolled with leather seats and bub­ble win­dows. Be­sides your en­vi­able In­sta­gram pho­tos, you can pur­chase an 8x10 of you and your group in front of the he­li­copter. Check web­site for sched­ule. $148-$228. www. che­tours.com. 2420 S. Hal­sted St., 773.840.9280. El: Orange to Hal­sted
