Chopper Checkpoints are side missions in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City only accessible after the mission Rub Out. They are time trials missions and are started by entering parked Sparrows around the city. There are a total of four different chopper checkpoints, all of them have similar objectives. The player must fly the Sparrow through a series of checkpoints. There are no time limits and all four are required for 100% completion. The player is rewarded $100 for completing the course.
- Vice Point - Across the street east of Links View Apartment on an open grassy area, 17 checkpoints
- Little Haiti - On top of a roof behind the Kaufman Cabs, 22 checkpoints
- Downtown - At the building east of the VCPD headquarters, only available after the mission G-Spotlight is completed, 29 checkpoints
- The Downtown Chopper Checkpoint can be made before the mission "G-Spotlight". You can get a Sparrow (from another Chopper Checkpoint) and park it in the position where the helicopter would spawn in the future. Try it more times, until you get it. Finally, the mission will start a few seconds after entering the chopper.
