We have been to NYC three times so we were looking to do something different. In short it was brilliant. We did the 30 minute tour and it was a great way to see a view of Manhattan and the Bronx that you can never see from any building. That and the fact that they use music to add to... More

We stopped in New York for 3 days on our way home from Mexico - it was fab - especially the helicopter ride over the city, breathtaking! Only wish I could remember the songs that were played in the helicopter as well as 'New York' as they would be great to put to my wee video of photos. Thanks Zip... More

We were introduced to Zip aviation at the Seaport area pier / east river by sales rep Carlo Torres who discussed our flight options with us. He was not pushy by any means and super friendly. His approach was genuine, and made you feel like you were on the flight before you were actually there. Thank you Carlo for approaching... More

My Mum and I went on a helicopter ride whilst visiting New York. We weren't planning to do this until we came across the sales rep Devine. He was very friendly and reassuring as I am nervous fligher but have no regrets. It was a fantastic experience and something everyone should do.

Having just spent 7 weeks travelling around the world, friends often ask me for the high-lite of the trip. Without a doubt it would have to be the Zip Heli tour over the Hudson River and seeing NYC from a birds eye view. The whole team at Zip were so friendly and our charming pilot Andrew not only took great... More

My best friend and I took the Zip Heli tour the end of June, 2014. (I've done it a number of times before in my life having grown up in New Jersey), but this time, what a TREAT. Thanks to the amazing crew at ZIP (especially Santiago), our trip became the most memorable New York City tour in my life.... More

I was fortunate enough to take the Zip Aviation helicopter tour and WOW! What a great way to see the city! James (our pilot) was friendly, knowledgeable, and immediately put this nervous flyer at ease. Walking out onto the heliport is a majestic experience, with the helicopters landing and departing seemingly nonstop. The staff is all very professional and positive.... More
