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 completion. The player is rewarded $100 for completing the course.
