Umm. Wait until you are in the second city and get one from there.

You can try to obtain the Maverick at San Fierro Easter Bay Airport, but be prepared to face roadblocks and 4-star police.

See rubregg's 4-star guide for more info.

As above.
Take a DoDo from SA airport.
Fly into SF Airport ... aquiring 4 star want status.
If you survive
you can grab a maverick and fly back.
If you survive
Save as quick as you can.
And you will have your 'copter for a while.

Jump the guard house.
Fly the Dodo for 1/2 an hour RT. (real time) to get a access to airports.
Fly the Shemal (jet) for 20 min RT
Stay in the SA air space, fly in circles don't head out to sea off the map.

I dunno, beat the game. Stop worrying about a heli until you really need one. Helicopters aren't that great anyway, go with the hydra icon14.gif

You can obtain a Maverick or a Seasparrow at the beginning of the game, while most of the game is still locked off, and not obtain any Wanted Level, at all.

Thereís a small section of the game that doesnít trigger any Wanted Level even though itís north of San Fierro, itís called Bayside Marina, where Boat School is located.

You can fly a plane around the outskirts of the map, then soft-land it in the ocean west of the Gant Bridge, from there you can swim to it.
Or, if you want, you can swim the entire distance from Los Santos to Bayside Marina.

Thereís a Helipad in Bayside Marina where either a Maverick or Seasparrow will spawn; they alternate.

You can fly the helicopter back to Los Santos and not get any Wanted Level as long as you stay over the water and not the land.

You can store the helicopter in one of your garages; a Maverick will barely fit inside the Santa Maria Beach Safe house garage.
You can also use the garage trick at the Mulholland Safe house to store a Seasparrow very easily, but not a Maverick.

Hereís a video demonstration, courtesy of GTA Phreak:
