TOURS: See New York City from a different perspective. Our 4 helicopter sightseeing tours, one of which is combined with a boat cruise, provide you with a bird's eye view of Manhattan and the surrounding area in comfort and style. Our helicopters are equipped with heat and air conditioning as well as a Bose stereo system to help you relax and enjoy the ride. Marvel at the splendid architecture of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and more as you travel down the Hudson River to the New York Harbor and the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum. See the George Washington and Verrazano bridge that keep Manhattan connected. Reflect on New York's historic landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village, South Street Seaport and the 120 year old Brooklyn Bridge. Baseball fans can even cheer for the Yankees above the stadium! CHARTERS: Whether you are taking a quick trip to the airport or heading to the Hamptons for the weekend, a helicopter charter offers a quick, easy, and comfortable alternative for travel in and out of the metro area. A helicopter charter is faster than a car service and able to travel farther into New York City than an airplane. Airport Transfers by helicopter can significantly reduce your travel time to and from New York City airports. Driving between Manhattan and airport areas could take more than an hour in unpredictable and aggravating traffic. Airport Transfers by helicopter typically take less than 10 minutes, giving you more time in the day for everything else. Airport Transfers are available between Manhattan and the Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, and Teterboro Airport as well as between the airports. Complimentary ground transportation is provided between the airline terminal and the helicopter landing area to get you to your destination quickly.

Me and three others chose to go for the 15 minute package. It was over $150 each. If you manage to sit it the front seat then your in for a good time. Still good by the windows though. Pilot was really great and we felt safe at all times.

I wanted to make my partner's 40th birthday a special occasion. My colleague is one of the Walton Sextuplets, and as part of a recent documentary they had visited New York and flown with Helicopter Flight Sevices, or HeliNy.com. It came highly recommended, so I checked out the website and booked the tour which seemed very good value for money.... More

I was incredibly lucky to be forced into this tour. My friends all wanted to do it and I got "dragged along". For my reluctance I was rewarded with the best seat...up front with the pilot. The experience was amazing and the professionalism of the staff also amazing. I may not have taken as many photos as I should have... More

I was hesitant to fly on a helicopter. The employees inside the waiting room were extremely friendly and courteous. The trip itself was very relaxing as the pilot was a seasoned veteran and very informative. I would definitely go back again for another ride. J. K. Brooklyn ny

What a truly great experience. The staff was incredibly professional and friendly. The Helicopters are comfortable and have the biggest passenger windows of all the other helicopters we saw taking off from the heliport. During the flight, the pilot gave us a detailed description of everything we were passing and explained the jargoon we were hearing over the radio. We... More

The helicopter tour was amazing! It is my #1 pick of things to do in NYC especially if you are time poor. We chose HFS as they appeared to have the largest windows and found them to be very efficient, friendly and we felt safe the entire time. Our pilot was friendly and very informative - headsets allow you to... More
