Q:

i see the helo has a 3 passenger limit - does that include the pilot ? i'm considering this for myself, my wife, AND my mother. that's 3 of us. but, of course, i'd like to leave room for a "qualified" person to FLY the machine ! so the question is, can three of us go up, or only 2 ?

greg g.  asked on  May 21, 2012

A:

Greg, you are correct. The helicopter seats a maximum of 4 people. A pilot and 3 passengers. So you would be able to have your group go at the same time. Remember though, you will all need your own groupon.

Q:

I am wondering how best to get to your airport from Chicago (downtown). Can you suggest an (inexpensive) route to take please? How long would it take and how much would it cost? Would you refund if the weather is bad?

Howard M.  asked on  May 20, 2012

A:

Howard, there are a few options to your transportation question. Please give us a call at (708) 895-8958 and we will be happy to discuss them with you. When it comes to bad weather, we do not refund the groupon, but will try and reschedule you to another date. You have a year to use the groupon, so I'm sure there will be one good day in there. If you are in town for only a certain day, you can request a refund from Groupon themselves.
