Im sure I'm not the first to do this, but a quick search didnt reveal any posts about this, but you can take your dates out drinking in a helicopter. I decided to call Kate and ask her to go drinking with me and I happened to be flying in a helicopter. I landed it in the park outside her house, she followed me inside and then we went to the bar, got drunk, and I stumbled my way back to the helicopter and flew her home. It wasnt that hard to fly drunk either, maybe easier than driving drunk since there arent tons of cars in your way.

Also, I have a helicopter saved in my parking spot. I half assed landed in my parking spot, saved my game, and came back out tl see that the helicopter was now perfecly parked outside my Alderney apartment.

aaah thanks. I tried "parking" the chopper on the balcony but it had dissappeared when I woke up the next day.

Lies.

When you try to get into the helicopter drunk you just fall around it.

Not a lie at all. I had no problem getting in.

Your falling around it is probably because you are drunk and stumbling.

Maybe I can try to make a vid with my phone and upload it when I get home from work. I was able to do it. I only tried once and it worked once. Maybe it was a glitch that I got in. I hope I can do it again cause it was fun.

I have a 360 and I wouldnt think it would make a difference but has anyone with a 360 tried this and failed?

i've taken helis out to bars and flown back in them too.

you can't get in a car drunk either you nitwits. you have to stumble around outside the bar for a minute or two before you can get in any vehicle, car, taxi, or helicopter. you probably couldn't ride the subway the first 20 seconds you come out of a bar either.. of course you'd be sobered up enough by the time you stumbled to it tho.

Thank you voyager and mechcb. I knew I wasnt lying yet people seem to jump to conclusions very quickly just because they dont know what they are doing in the game. I mean, if you can drive drunk, it makes no sense that you wouldnt be able to fly drunk.

I don't know where you guys are getting your information from but you can drink and drive in gta4, you go drink, and walk to a car, press Triangle...thats all silly!

But helicopters, haven't tried yet...

I will post back later to see if you can fly drunk...

I don't see why you can't

Hmm could this be an unrecognized featured that Rockstar added only for the 360 or Is It just a coincidence that PS3 people can't get In? No Fanboy.

I love the rudeness on these forums. Actually, I've never thought of driving drunk in a helicopter. lol.gif I never really drive drunk...cops are too annoying. I just love hearing Niko say, "Yellow car!"

I never thought of it either, until I was actually drunk and flying a helicopter and thought it would be cool to try, not just to get drunk, but to also see if the date would get in the helicopter and if she would say anything. There was actually no dialogue, which was wierd.

This has been talked about alot, many people say you can't do it, some say you can, i know you CAN fly drunk as i did it, but apparently only after you have waited a little while to sober up, when i flew the heli it was at least 60 seconds after i left the pub, as it took ages to get to my heli that was parked in a safe locaion (basket ball court opposite the irish pub in Dukes).

Also it depends on who you get drunk with, some friends get you more drunk that others do, when i did it, it was with Kate.

There was a thread a while back, where someone took a video of his 360.. He was right outside his heli drunk, and you could hear him tapping Y trying to get in the heli.. But to no avail, and he just never got in it.

I think it has to do with who you get drunk with, with jacob I get really drunk, but with brucie I dont, with roman also you get very drunk, but I can enter a car or a heli while drunk I tested it on my ps3...you need to wait until after you regain your balance and not so woosy...it worked for me

but I do notice its hard for Niko to open any vehicle while drunk, even taxi's are hard to get into sometimes...maybe theres a Triangle button glitch?

I also love when Niko goes YELLOW CAAAARRR!

I just giggle so hard, he sounds so cute doing that

I did this thing today with Brucie and Roman.At first Niko didn't get in, but after few tries, he got in. It isn't that hard to fly drunken, because the cops wont stop you, and it's not too hard to dodge the buildings. Landing is a whole other thing...

Btw, I have X360. In case it only works on X360, not PS3 or something...

So, essentially, wait until you're NOT drunk.

This is EXACTLY what I did, I got drunk with Kate and parked the heli on the basketball court so maybe it is the case that you have to wait a minute cause it took about that long to stumble my way to the heli. And I was still drunk, not sober, when I flew the heli.

I took a helicopter to pick Kate up for a date the other day and the heli was gone when I got out to meet her at work.

I was gonna fly it drunk too.. Pissed me off! I had to steal some boojie ass ride and I figured the date was burned, so I just started killing people.

(Didn't save of course.)

But as for the little debate going on here... I bet you can fly drunk. I'll do it tonight.

You can get in after drinking, but not until you've sobered up a bit. I've tried it dozens of times, all with the same result.

To all the people claiming 'you can do it, you just have to wait a bit':

Does the time depend on the vehicle type?

I've never tried to do it in a heli, but I tried to drive Packie home on a motorcycle after drinking, and it wouldn't let me get on. Not stumbling dramatically, just swaying, right next to the bike, tapping Y over and over to no avail. So, I walked five feet and got in a car no problem.
