During the 30-minute introductory lesson, beginners take the reins as they fly 500 feet above the ground. As passengers, they can snap photos of the sweeping panorama below. Students will receive one-on-one instruction and will be able to quiz the FAA Certified Pilot on proper landing procedures and whether the Navy Pier ferris wheel could, hypothetically, work as the blade on a giant homemade, totally hypothetical, helicopter.

Bachman Aero

Bachman Aero's FAA-certified pilots take to the sky inside choppers for flight services such as aerial photography, sightseeing, or lessons in helicopter certification. They provide beginning pilots a chance to log hours in their helicopters, helping students prepare for commercial pilot flight exams or their oral exam on pig Latin pilot jargon. The in-house instructors also groom accomplished pilots for a career in teaching with instructor lessons.
