Helicopter Charters to
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Get to the track first!
When the races come to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, you can bet the city overfills with traffic and of course race fans from all walks of life. But for those true fans, getting to the track means more than just seeing the race and not just for the Indy 500, it means being there for nearly every race including the pre-race concerts and driver introductions on time and ready to see the green flag and checkered flags take their turn to wave.
But what happens when the traffic is so bad on W. 16th that you arrive late? Or the parking spots run out? What happens when you can’t leave your house until later and you know you are facing a huge delay? You could miss an event like the incredible win of Dan Wheldon in 2011.

The Famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway
IMS was originally envisioned by an Indianapolis businessman, Carl G. Fisher following his experience with racing in Europe, specifically France. Mr.Fisher wanted the United States to hold more of a stake in the racing design and craftsmanship he had seen overseas. The track began construction in March of 1909 and was initially planned to be a 3 mile oval with a 2-mile road course. However, after much speculation, Fisher decided to downsize that plan to leave room for the track’s grandstand.
The first event held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was a helium gas-filled hot air balloon competition that took place on June 5, 1909, a full two months prior to the oval’s completion. As far as the first motorsport competition is concerned, motorcycles raced the track first as part of an event supported by the Federation of American Motorcyclists (FAM). Although the race was slotted for two days, it was called off early due to a concern for the suitability of the track surface for motorcycle use. The next big event took place on August 19th of that same year when 15 car-makers teams arrived to utilize the track for practice runs.
The first day saw four finishes and two land speed records but concerns over safety led the AAA to consider canceling the rest of the event. Fisher responded by promising the track repairs to be done by the following day. 20,000 spectators showed up for that next day’s race, no major incidents were reported and additional records were broken. The grand finale was held on day three which thirty-five thousand fans showed up for.
Racing events increased after Tony George inherited the track after 1993. Initially, the track only held the Indy 500. However, in August of '94, the NASCAR Brickyard 400 made it’s debut at the track offering the largest cash prize in NASCAR history in front of the largest crowd in the history as well.
Today, the track features enough room to hold over 200,000 race fans and is considered the home of racing as we currently know it.

Why take a helicopter charter to Indianapolis Motor Speedway?
We could go on and on about the benefits. Famous drivers have had their own helicopters and NASCAR provides helicopters for use by drivers and VIPs exclusively, do you know why? Because it is the fastest way to get you to the races. We like fast, so do you or you wouldn’t be a race fan. So do like the drivers do and get on a helicopter for your next travel to the track!
Maybe you like sitting in traffic or enjoy the time it takes to get to the raceway during race season. If that is the case then a helicopter would only serve as a cool way to get to the race and a fantastic view. However, if sitting in traffic isn’t your cup of tea, then taking a helicopter charter to Indianapolis Motor Speedway can serve as a convenient and stress-free way to get to the race without having to leave extremely early. Within a matter of minutes, our partnering pilot can pick you up and get you there in enough time to enjoy everything that IMS has to offer pre and post race!
Paid parking is offered as on a first come-first served basis and pre-reservation at the speedway. This means that even if you wait in traffic for hours and finally make it to the parking lot, you take a chance that space might not even be available for you. Then you will face having to pay inflated parking costs miles away or have to take one of the cramped shuttle buses to the gate. Skip all of that with a helicopter charter. Leave the parking up to your pilot and don’t pay extra again!
Stay Late / Arrive Early
Missing an important event at a race can mean missing a memorable moment, a newsworthy appearance and more. Don’t miss a thing when you charter a helicopter with FairLifts. Your itinerary will be planned according to the racing schedule to allow for you to have plenty of time before and after the race to see celebrations, participate in pit activities and more. You don’t want to have to hear about something amazing happening while you weren’t there and neither do we which is why all flights to and from the raceway happen before the race begins and after the race has concluded.
Group Pricing: Split the bill
The more the merrier is what helicopter charters are all about. Reserving a helicopter to take you to the race means that you can split the cost with friends or guests or even other race fans you have yet to meet! Conversely, if you want the whole helicopter to yourself we can also plan solo flights as well. Enjoy your time in the sky, FairLifts will schedule the right helicopter to take any size group!
One way and round trip flights
Do you need a helicopter to pick you up from the airport or deliver you to closer to your hotel? FairLifts can arrange that. With one way flights and round trip shuttles you pick and choose how you want your transport. If you have friends at the raceway you will be staying with schedule a one-way flight or if you want a helicopter charter to be available for the entire racing weekend, let us know! The options are nearly endless!
The checkered flag waits for no one.
