We only had a couple of days in Chicago and the helicopter flight was a gift from our children for their father's 70th birthday. The helipad is fairly new, located downtown in the medical area, but our cab driver found it OK. Lovely reception area. Ryan our pilot was a lovely, friendly man and put us at our ease despite the helicopter being the smallest we'd ever seen!. It was an amazing experience flying around all the main areas of the city with Ryan pointing out places of interest and giving some background to many of them. Even though the day was overcast it didn't spoil the trip. The view from on high complemented the view from the lower level via a hop-on-hop-off bus trip. Would highly recommend the experience.
