The pilots at Sun Aero Helicopters Inc. have been training pupils in the autogiro arts and transporting clients through the skies since 1991. Inside their base at Lansing Municipal Airport, aviators maintain a 12,000-square-foot hangar area and 3,000 square feet of training offices and high-speed computerized flight-planning facilities. Expert pilots impart their knowledge to up-and-coming FBI agents, police officers, emergency medical technicians, and leisure pilots during one-on-one training sessions in Robinson and Bell copters. Pilots also give landlubbers a skyscraper's view of Chicago's landmarks, such as US Cellular Field, the John Hancock building, and the Sears/Willis Tower. When they aren't transporting rally drivers, golfers, and famous wiffle ball players with private charter services, Sun Aero serves national media companies with aerial photography and land surveys.

Nearby, craftspeople display beaded necklaces, seashell-laden earrings, and hand-painted animal figures for sale. As the crowds peruse works, live music and DJ tunes fill the room. Guests get their own chance to be creative too: patrons can create their own artwork or act as lookouts while Hugo Style paints live graffiti art.

Whether they run, walk, or hop aboard the closest CTA vehicle, the participants of the Chicago Urban Race for CHD Research 2013 tear across the city in search of the next scavenger hunt mission. After decoding clues to determine their next location, teams of two to four consult their list of 10 challenges, which span from physical tasks to perplexing puzzles. Teams are allowed to use transportation tools such as GPS systems, smartphones, and trails of breadcrumbs not yet eaten by pigeons. The first three teams to complete 9 out of the 10 challenges receive a prize and, most importantly, bragging rights.
