Best money we spent on our trip. I can not recommend Zip Aviation enough. From Emma on the front desk to our Pilot Andrew the whole experience was brilliant. Nothing is going to top the view you get while flying high over the Statue of Liberty or the Manhattan skyline as you fly up the Hudson! A must for any... More

My fiancé and I had the great pleasure of taking a helicopter tour for his birthday. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it. I appreciate Santiago and all the staff at zip aviation for making his birthday ride special. Thank you all.

Paid $240 - 22hrs before our ride I requested to reschedule because the weather would be -14 and they issued a frostbite warning and I'd be dragging my 8yr old from queens for this just to sit in a "heated helicopter" as Maria said.. For 12 minutes and then travel all the way back where we came from. Was told... More

Decided to film this tour as something people can try while visiting NYC. I had a front seat next to the pilot and it was such an adrenaline rush! The views were phenomenal and I was able to capture a lot of great video footage and photos that I can't wait to share with my YouTube subscribers!

Possibly the Christmas gift of a lifetime, we had a January helicopter tour of Manhattan in early January. We awoke that morning to blizzard like conditions and trepidation of what would happen to the tour. We called and were advised they were still flying, which we thought meant a tour with no view, but on arrival were pleased that this... More

This was the best thing I have ever done. The pilot was wonderful and I was lucky enough to sit in the front. This made our last freezing cold day in New York the best.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
