The Helitours Maverick is owned and run by Higgins Helitours, a company based in southern Algonquin, and is distinct only in that it is emblazoned with the company's logo. With this vehicle, the player has the option of either taking a guided tour of Liberty City for a fee, or simply stealing the helicopter for personal use.
A Helitours Maverick can be seen taking off at Firefly Beach, Broker or at the Helitours base at the border between Fishmarket South and Castle Gardens, Algonquin. Usually it can be heard or seen flying around parts of Liberty City, however if the player shoots it down with an RPG they will receive a 4 star wanted level. This is because all helicopters that spawn flying around Liberty City spawn with an LCPD officer as the pilot.
- Strangely, robbing a Helitours Maverick will not get you a wanted level, provided no police officers are looking.
- In GTA Chinatown Wars, you can occasionally spot a Helitours Maverick flying around the city.
