The Deal

  • $149 for a helicopter tour for one (a $299 value)
  • $289 for a helicopter tour for two (a $599 value)<p>

In the course of a 45-minute aerial tour, helicopter pilots grant passengers scenic bird’s-eye views of the gothic and modern architecture of downtown Chicago, the expanse of Lake Geneva, the cityscape of Milwaukee, or the verdant fields and small lakes of rural southeast Wisconsin. Passengers perch in the cockpit of a Robinson R-22 helicopter during solo flights, or sit strapped beside an additional passenger in an R-44.<p>

Midwestern Helicopter

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.
