Chicago Helicopter Express
Chicago Helicopter Express’s certified pilots eschew wings when they take to the sky. Instead, they depend on the whirling rotors of their Robinson R66 turbine-powered helicopters. The crafts comfortably seat up to four passengers and one pilot in a climate-controlled cabin. They soar over the city, conveniently transporting guests and their luggage from one location to another or providing bird's-eye views of Chicago’s skyline and some of its most famous landmarks.
