College sports are exciting and carry a fandom unmatched in team spirit and enthusiasm. Watching your Alma mater team can take you back in time to your college days in your campus auditorium, doing “the wave” and screaming until your voice faded away. Or intently following your son or daughter’s new college team may make you feel connected to their experiences away from home, wearing their colors and texting them play-by-play to carry on the conversation as if you were at the game together. The reasons vary, but there is a common thread that seems to connect college sports fans as they root their team to victory. And though in Chicago, we are fortunate to have Champion winning baseball, hockey, basketball and football teams, we are also lucky to be in a region where we have access to amazing college athletics.
As college football season winds down, with the highly anticipated bowl games remaining, college basketball is in full swing. Both men’s and women’s basketball kicked off in November and will play through the next several months, as fans speculate where their team will land in March for the NCAA March Madness playoffs. With just a little over 2 months until Selection Sunday, where are you rooting for your favorite team? Are you in your living room, screaming at the live broadcast on tv? Or in a local sports bar with other fans watching your game on one of several big screens, while others cheer on their own favorites in what may seem like a parallel universe? Why not head to the game and immerse yourself in a full game day experience and watch in an arena full of others, like you, anticipating every move on the court and holding your breath momentarily at each play? With time at a premium for many these days, distance or traffic seem to make this an impossibility. Don’t let that become a barrier to seeing your favorite team play up close on campus.
Why sit in traffic, when a helicopter charter can whisk you out of the city and to your favorite college campus in a fraction of the time? Taking off from Vertiport Chicago can have you arrive in Madison to cheer on Wisconsin’s Badgers in Kohl Center on UW Madison campus in less than an hour. Or be in South Bend ready to watch Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish in less than half an hour. The teams quickly accessible by a convenient, luxurious helicopter charter are many – Marquette University’s Golden Eagles, U of I’s Fighting Illini, Northwestern’s Wildcats, Purdue’s Boilermakers and the list goes on.
Take a look at the schedule and find a game or games that you would love to see in person, but don’t want to sit in traffic to get to. Then call Vertiport Chicago at 877-902-9292, and select option 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
