(CNN) —  

The Iowa State Fair won’t allow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to give kids free rides on his helicopter on fairgrounds, but the real estate developer has secured a nearby location.

The helicopter will take off from a parking lot outside the fair in Des Moines, campaign state chairman Chuck Laudner told CNN on Friday, adding that Trump may hop on a few rides as well.

CNN previously reported that the Sikorsky is one of three that he owns, seats 12 people comfortably, including the pilot.

Trump will arrive in the $7 million helicopter before holding a press event. Despite Trump’s previous public announcement, his campaign expressed safety concerns about the event becoming so well attended that landing the aircraft could be a challenge.

The helicopter has already arrived in the area. It took three refueling stops to get it here and flew at an altitude of 2400 feet across the county, according to a source familiar with the travel plans.
