KBUR & KVNY are two around here that come to mind.

Try KBDL or KHFD; there's a flight school in the area so you hear student pilots in R-22s sometimes.  Those are the two main airports they use to practice their controlled airspace skills.

KCLT handles several news choppers daily.
Charlotte Ground - "Cactus 1441, hold short of mike and give way to the RJ..."

US Airways 1441 - "We have priority here, this same thing happened last time..."

Charlotte Ground - "You have priority when I give it to you, now hold short Cactus 1441..

KDCA (Washington National) has a large variety of primarily military helicopter traffic, complete with a seperate tower frequency and controller during much of the day (not a shameless plug for my feed  :wink: )

KOAK has helicopter traffic on a fairly regular basis.  Especially early evening and weekends.

KLAS as well.

Tons of helicopter tours to the Strip, and out to Lake Mead/Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon from McCarran.

 KVNY/KWHP will have lots of helos, and all of the Los Angeles media ships are based at these 2 airports.
