Dear All,
Soon, I will be visiting Chicago for a couple of days. Does anyone know a nearby GA airport and a flight school where I can rent with or without instructor a cessna 172 for a sightseeing flight?

Any recommandations are highly appreciated.

Thank you,

All of the below are within an hour of Chicago, I didn't mention Palwaukee, or some other northside airports.
