I had the perfect wedding proposal planned until I injured my knee two days before our trip to NYC. We flew out of Toronto at 6pm Friday and i found myself on the phone with numerous helicopter tour providers around 1pm as i was running out of time to book something. Then I reached Bronwyn Howell with HeliNy. She was... More

Nice and smooth ride with great views of NYC. Great and new equipment with big windows for everyone to see. Copters are huge so they put up to 7 people in one ride. Go early as it gets more crowded as the day goes plus the flight path is restricted if the Yankees are playing or some other sporting event... More

Visited for valentines day this year, and got the best of both worlds. Snow the day we arrived, and then piercingly clear skies and sun the morning of the helicopter ride. We chose this company due to the floor to ceiling windows in the helicopters, and a good thing too as the views were breathtaking. What an experience, money well... More

This is the best way to see New York City from above. We had a great view and our cameras went hot during this trip. Our son, age 13 was put in the front seat, and he loved every minut of the trip. We will do it again, next time we come to NYC. Than for a longer trip. Great... More

We had pre booked the short flight through the hotel and were booked in to fly at 10.30am. The operator called the hotel on the morning to let us know that due to the haziness they were moving us forward to 12noon which was fine by us. As we were already up and about we decided to go down to... More

My partner surprised me with a helicopter ride over NYC. The whole process went very smoothly - watch the video, put on life belt, put belongings in the locker, get on helicopter. The view from the helicopter was amazing! There's not much else like it. The pilot was informative, telling us what landmarks we were passing and any interesting info... More

It was a rather cramped helicopter (rode with 4 strangers) and the guiding from the pilot was a little unclear, but this was an amazing way to see New York City. The preparations and instructions given beforehand made us feel safe and relaxed. The 20 minutes we were in the air flew by in no time. If expecting an adrenaline... More

This is a rather expensive but exclusive way to see the whole of NY from the air. We booked the best of 3 available packages which goes as far south as colney island and as far north as the Bronx & the Yankee stadium . The tour takes about 30 minutes and you get a running commentary from your pilot.... More

Easy to book on line, easy to find, easy and quick to get in a helicopter. Really quick ride for a lot of dollars. A small disappointment was not riding over central park.
