Chicago Helicopter Experience was established in October 2011 in Wheeling, Illinois. They moved to Chicago’s downtown in January 2015. The young 30 year old owner of the company, Trevor Heffernan, is a helicopter pilot himself although he does not operate the tours. He enjoys the rides so much that he wanted to make it available for everyone to experience. CHE is the only privately owned heliport in the Chicago downtown area providing helicopter tours and transportation.

Their helicopter tour offers remarkable views of Chicago’s skyline and shoreline from the air highlighting many of the city’s iconic landmarks with their history. Tours available Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 9:00pm. The Call Center is open 7 days a week from 8:00am -7:00pm. Chicago Helicopter Experience also offers charter services and is available to fly and land anywhere outside of the city limits as long as permission is granted from land owners and the area is approved. Their helicopters are equipped with spacious leather seats, floor to ceiling bubble windows, climate controlled cabins, and noise canceling headsets. All flights take off from the C.H.E. Chicago Heliport located at 2420 S. Halsted Street, which is easily accessible by car, bus, “L”, or CHE shuttle bus.

As a member of the Chicago Chinatown Chamber of Commerce, Chicago Helicopter Experience wants to be more involved in the Chinatown community and develop relationships with locals and other members.
