I bought the 60 minute helicopter piloting experience for my boyfriend as a birthday present. Keep your eyes open for deals on sites like amazon local or groupon. I bought a discounted voucher at an awesome price. I think it's very respectable they offer discounted flights. Purchasing was easy I bought a voucher off of groupon. Booking was a pleasure.... More

One of the coolest experiences I have ever had! From the time of planning the flight to the end... Anna was wonderful to work with, and pilot was and staff were the best! NYC never looked as beautiful as it did from this vantage point! An experience not to be missed... JM

There is nothing like seeing the sky line of New York City by helicopter or general aviation aircraft. Just a short flight from Westchester County Airport, you fly along at less than 1500 feet and the buildings tower over you. Bring your camera.

I really enjoyed the helicopter ride. The pilot, Anthony was really great and m(100 character minimum) ade me feel very comfortable. His enthusiasm for flying made it even more exciting. It took a while to get the reservations but once it was made, there were no issues. I you want to have a really good experience and you're a little... More

Like several other reviewers here, I bought a flight experience Groupon for Wings Air. Also like several reviewers here, my initial appointment was cancelled due to "routine maintenance". UNlike other reviewers here, I was given ample advance notice of the cancellation — at least one full month, possibly more. Also unlike other reviewers, I was able to take my flight... More

Awesome experience. I rushed to schedule an appointment before our Groupon expired, and not only was it very easy to do, I was also told that the Groupon would be honored even if we had to book something within the next month or so after the expiration date. The experience itself felt very safe. The staff and pilot were well... More

We have planned Helicopter tour from westchester county to NY city on our son's sixth birthday. We did not want to travel all the way to city and go through parking and other hassles. This was completely personal experience and we are happy about the same. The tour started with safety demonstration, safety declaration sign up and after that we... More

First time was for weather so no biggie, out of their control... the last 2 cancellations were for "routine maintenance" My flights were each scheduled months in advance. Wouldn't "routine maintenance" be scheduled at a different time than on... More

I bought a Groupon for a private helicopter lesson from WingsAir in March 2013 as a surprise gift for my husband for Father's Day. After calling to schedule the appointment for June and then confirming the appointment, I was told the day before Father's Day that the helicopter was down for routine maintenance and they wanted to reschedule. I asked... More
