Experts in aviary exploration, Blue Sky Taxi's pilots whisk lovers, families, or youth-soccer players away on tours that follow the flightpath of your choosing. The flight over Chicago, which is pushed by little flying cupids, can whiz over Wrigley Field, breeze by your home, or make the Willis Tower look like a loaf of french bread.

Towering inflatables shelter bounding, sliding, and climbing youngsters inside Party Fantasy's play facility. Staff supervisors strap adventurous tykes into the rock-climbing wall's safety equipment, then let them clamber up to the ceiling's lofty heights. Redeemable prizes await recipients in the arcade, featuring games such as air hockey, and the toddler area accommodates tots with toys and costumes to play dress-up.

Guardians enjoy comfortable seating throughout they play area and are entertained with high-definition televisions and free WiFi. In addition to open play for kids of all ages just dropping in, party packages sequester celebrations into one of two private rooms.

Having honed his aviation skills in helicopter cockpits for 45+ years, the head pilot at Midwestern Helicopter leads a team of FAA–certified pilots in performing helicopter tours, charters, and pilot instruction. They steer a fleet of three Robinson R-44s and two R-22s over cityscapes and country vistas with photographers, pollinators, surveyors, or sightseers onboard, continuing a crash- and speeding-ticket-free record begun with the company's inception four years ago. The flight team acquaints new flyers with immediate actual flight experience during introductory flights and helps students to achieve private, commercial, and flight-instructor certification during FAA courses. As authorized merchants of Robinson aircraft, they can also hawk helicopters or perform maintenance on various models inside heated hangars without having to first notify the aircraft's next of kin.
