Takin' it to new heights!
As the new year approaches are you ready to take it to new heights? I had the opportunity to collaborate with Chicago Helicopter Experience and let's just say my expectation was HIGHtened to a new level.
The entire experience is so cool. The building is nestled in a remote area of Chicago and is like a small little oasis beyond the city. While you wait you can view some of the helicopters in the back soar into the sky. They also have bags that you can play to pass the time.
You receive a little buzzer and when it's your time to board it will go off. Once you walk towards the take off location you will be prompted to watch an informative video. For all my fearful and strategic followers this one is for you. It calmed my husband's nerves a bit to see all the precautions that the pilot takes.
Once the video is over we were so excited to board the helicopter. They take you out and luckily you have a wonderful videographer and photographer who can capture that special moment for you. You are able to purchase those images at the end of the tour. Image framing that lovely picture of you and your significant other, or family member, with a glorious helicopter in the background.
The helicopter is even cooler in the inside. We were lucky to get front row access so we could sit right next to the pilot, whose name was Matt. All the seats in the helicopter are amazing allowing you to soak up all the stunning views that Chicago has to offer. You can talk to the pilot along with the people on board through your mic set. However, silence is what I experienced because it seemed like everyone wanted to revel in the stunning views. It was nice, however, to hear Matt our pilot, speak about some of the interesting facts as we flew over different landmarks.
If you are wondering what you could see on the flight check out the destinations below copied from the website.
Overall, it was such a beautiful experience and it will surely be one that my husband and I will remember. If you are looking for amazing new year's eve plans I think this would be the perfect one. Also, the beauty of this experience is that it isn't strictly for couples but can be for families, friends, and anyone you want to experience stunning views with.
Huge shout out to the lovely Akira for dressing me for this amazing shoot. If you are looking for the perfect New Years Eve outfit I recommend you to check out their website. I am linking the dress and shoes in case you want to purchase it.
