About Vertiport Chicago
Vertiport Chicago marks the return of a dedicated commercial helicopter facility to Chicago. Vertiport Chicago launched in April 2015 and is North America’s largest and Chicago’s only vertical helicopter landing facility. The company’s expansive facility serves as a Fixed Base Operation (FBO) for helicopter owners and operators and is located on ten acres of land boasting 30,000 square feet of hangar space, 11,700 square feet of office space, a 24-hour refueling station, a single take off and landing spot and eight helicopter parking spots. Vertiport’s location in the Illinois Medical District has made the FBO an ideal hub for EMS services, handling emergency-medical flights for nearby hospitals.
Vertiport Chicago offers helicopter charter flight services and sightseeing tours. Charter services enable executives quick and convenient access in and out of the city and to suburban airports and other Midwest destinations within a couple hundred miles. Helicopter Tours provide premier day, night and private helicopter tours of Chicago’s magnificent sights and landmarks to residents and tourists. Vertiport Chicago’s best in class facility includes a VIP tour area, conference center, business center, pilot lounge and VIP concierge support for ground transport, hotel bookings, event tickets and restaurants.
