VERTIPORT CHICAGO Chicago's Premier Helicopter Tour Company
Located in the Illinois Medical District, Vertiport Chicago is Chicago’s only and North America’s largest vertical helicopter landing facility. Chicago has not had this type of utility since Meigs Field unexpectedly closed in 2003 and we’re excited to have it back. They offer picturesque tours of the city, as well as executive charters, all located downtown in a state of the art facility. Leave the ground and soar over Chicago’s famous landmarks in luxury aircraft that is sure to have that iPhone camera roll filled in no time. Learn more about Vertiport at the Chicago Helicopter Show on August 10 and then get out and see the city like you’ve never seen it before.

Corporate helicopter use disappeared in Chicago almost immediately after Meigs Field’s closure in 2003 but it makes sense once again. Vertiport Chicago’s proximity to the city creates an unparalleled convenience from a logistical standpoint. You can be downtown in 10 minutes after a short commute by air from some of the area’s major outlying business parks like Deerfield, Oakbrook, or Schaumburg. Being mere minutes by air from all of Chicago’s major airports means that current business aircraft users should consider the use of helicopters again and Vertiport Chicago is an integral part of this equation.
Alright, we’ve already established that helicopters are cool but if you’re like the majority of us and can’t afford to have your own, you can charter and Vertiport Chicago is the place to do just that. Vertiport works with regional and national leaders in the charter and fractional helicopter ownership space including Helimotion and HeliFlite. So, next time you want to treat the squad or impress that date, you can charter from an all turbine powered fleet owned and operated by consummate professionals to take you to that concert in style or land trackside for a race event at Autobahn. Not to mention, the impeccable facilities at Vertiport Chicago will ensure an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
