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.

I purchased Groupons for the Ultimate Tour as a highlight of our pre-wedding week in NYC. Our experience was worth every penny! Our pilot, Alex, did a great job of providing a well-narrated tour of the whole of Manhattan and the adjacent islands, and also ensured our safety throughout, in a very congested area of NYC airspace.

We were so impressed with the helicopter tour in NY! Everything was amazing. Our pilot was great and it was a once in a lifetime experience. We felt safe the whole time and it was a lot of fun. I highly recommend these guys!

I was so impressed with the service. Everything was professionally done and the Helicopters were new with huge windows so you could take in all the views. We were a group of five and unfortunately the one taxi went to the wrong drop off area so we were late - no problem they just fitted us into a later slot... More

Pre-booked in the UK before we left but ended up at the helipad a lot earlier than our scheduled flight but this was no issue, we were able to get on an earlier flight and it was superb! Very professional service and felt very safe, highlight of our trip and would definitely recommend to others, best way to see NYC!

This has been on my bucket list for years! So this trip I pre-booked to make sure that it really happened. We arrived earlier than our booked slot but we were welcomed in and took our trip early which freed up time to do something else. The staff were very well organised and the entire experience was first class. I... More

I bought this trip as a birthday present for my girlfriend. Location was great at only 5 mins walk from the subway if you want to avoid Manhattan traffic! On arrival the friendly staff had us organised into our helicopter group. Once on board there was plenty of room and views were no problem. The pilot was informative and joyful.... More

I booked this as a surprise for my mom and sister during our weekend trip to NYC last weekend in February 2015. Great service! Everyone was very nice!
