"Wow, what a Great Way to see Chicago. We experienced seeing landmarks - United Center, Soldier Field, downtown skyline, Wrigley Field, and could go on. We would recommend A M Air Service highly. They made our experience memorable. If you go, take the doors off to experience the whole city -- we did not but wish we did. "
"I'm glad we went on the helicopter ride. I guess we didn't realize there would be no doors on it. That was very scary!!! A good adrenaline rush. I'm glad we did it."
"We had a awesome time. Our pilot Fritz was very friendly and made us feel very relaxed. It was our first time in a helicopter and we look forward to doing it again one day."
