The length of a Chicago aerial tour depends on the type of aerial tour package the customer chooses. We offer both 30 minute, and 1 hour aerial tour packages. For helicopter tours, we offer a 30 minute, and a 1 hour aerial tour package. For airplane tours, only a 1 hour package is available.
24 hours before the customers scheduled aerial tour, a representative will contact the customer with a weather outlook. If an aerial tour is cancelled due to weather, customers have the option to reschedule for a later date, or cancel their reservation completely. Customers will be not be charged any fees for aerial tours rescheduled or cancelled due to weather.
Customers may cancel their aerial tour reservation for any reason 12 hours prior to their scheduled tour time. Customers that cancel an aerial tour with less than 12 hours noticed will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee. No shows will be charged the full aerial tour amount, and will not be permitted to reschedule for a later date.
Many of our customers choose aerial tours as a means to celebrate a special occasion or event. Unfortunately, Federal Aviation Regulations prohibit alcoholic beverages onboard aerial tour flights. Customers suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be denied boarding, and will not receive a refund.
There are no regulations requiring a minimum age or height for children to fly. However, the recommended age for children to fly on an aerial tour is 5 years or older. Incase of an emergency, children should be able to exit the aircraft unassisted if required.
