Where To Get Helicopters in GTA Vice City? Locations and Areas

Here’s how to get your hands on one of Grand Theft Auto Vice City’s rare helicopters!

GTA Vice City is one of the cult classic games by Rockstar that really paved the way for the series.

The game is more than a decade old yet its popularity among players has not died. 

GTA Vice City has introduced players to a pure sandbox experience where players can do anything and go anywhere they want.

And to go around a vast map, there are tons of vehicles on offer. Rockstar even has managed to pack legit helicopters in the game that players can fly around.

While Rockstar hadn’t perfected the flying formula until GTA San Andreas, the developers still included helicopters and a Dodo (seaplane). 

In GTA Vice City, helicopters are referred to as choppers. There are a couple of ways you can get yourself a helicopter. 

The first is stealing. There are Helipads in the game from which you can steal a helicopter in GTA Vice City.

There’s a property called Hyman Condo that you can purchase. The property will provide you access to a Helipad, along with a helicopter that is usually stationed there.

The condo is located on the northwestern corner of Downtown Vice City and can be purchased for $14,000 after unlocking mainland Vice City following Phnom Penh ’86 mission.

Another way to get a helicopter in GTA Vice City is by visiting the other island.

Grabbing a helicopter is an excellent way to quickly track down all of the Hidden Packages in Vice City!

After making your way to the island, you can find the helicopter parked on the helipad on the roof of the Downtown Police Station.

The helicopter is known as Police Maverick. Here is a video that will help you get to the location.

There’s another helicopter named Sea Sparrow, an improved version of a regular Sparrow. It can even land on water.

To get this helicopter, players need to collect 80 hidden packages, as until then, it can’t be located anywhere else. 

Once unlocked, it will spawn behind the Vercetti Estate, regardless of the mission Rub Out is completed or not.

Lastly, if you don’t want any nuisance and are looking to have a great time, cheat codes have got you covered.

Players can use this Vice City helicopter cheat code in the game that will spawn a Hunter (Attack Helicopter) right where they are standing.

However, be mindful not to use the cheat in the middle of a narrow street. Narrower streets will cause the helicopter to explode, which won’t be a good sight.

Speaking of explosions, you can also steal this tank for a joyride in Vice City – provided you have enough skill to do so!
