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.

We booked the flight three days in advance to be on the safe side with the weather and everything went very smoothly. A very professional organization of the whole experience with a very friendly ground team and pilot, very informative, and, for sure....with spectacular views.

I booked this tour for my son (11) and my nephew (24). It is easily located from the subway. Where you sit in the helicopter is dependant on your weight. My son loved his view from the front, my nephew was sat in between 2 people with Ipads held up to the windows, he said his view was not good... More

This was the highpoint of our visit to New York! Really professional and the pilot was really informative. It seemed much longer than 20 minutes and I enjoyed every second of it. We saw so much and the day was beautifully clear and sunny too.

So we spent the extra cash and took to the skies above New York. It was .... AMAZING. These guys were great, very friendly and efficient and the whole experience was one to savour. You will not regret it. Do it, you know you want to!

Selected this company from the many online and wasn't disappointed. Great service from very professional staff with a focus on both safety and enjoyment. The flight itself was STUNNING! If you are reading this and thinking about booking, just DO IT! Whilst it's not cheap, you get what you pay before and myself and my family will never forget this... More

Fantastic experience. Have been to NYC twice before but seeing this unbelievable city from the air was unforgettable and unique. So worth the cost. Safety procedures were good and ground staff very professional. No hard sell on the photo taken as you are boarding your flight.
