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.

The helicopter flight up the Hudson river was the icing on the cake for our trip to NYC. The flight took us from pier 6 on the east river downtown Manhattan, we flew out past the statue of liberty and up the Hudson river all the way to the George Washington bridge and back. We took in all the sights... More

Our family loved the Ultimate tour that took us up almost the length of Manhattan with the pilot pointing out highlights along the way. It is not an inexpensive thing to do, but we booked it as a birthday gift for my husband, and he loved it.The staff took photos before we got in the helicopter, which was great. We... More

We booked the Ulitmate Tour and it was brilliant. We flew on a nice sunny day and could see for miles. The pilot was very informative and smooth. The helicopter appeared new and was very comfortable. I looked at reviews for the helicopter tour providers based at this heliport and thought HeliNY looked the best...... they certainly were!

Such a fun activity to do! The staff at HeliNY were so helpful. I was originally meant to sit in the front of the plane as I would have been the lightest person on the plane, but after explaining that I would like to sit with my husband they quickly adjusted the seating to accommodate my seating request. We took... More

It was a surprise for my wife when I treated her to a New Year eve flight. The moment I reach the Pier, it was kinda being treated like a VIP. The host was able to identify me without me showing my ticket confirmation and I was also ushered to the front of the queue and into the waiting area... More

The helicopter tour was fantastic just like every other reviewer says. What impressed me more was the service, we were due to fly on the morning after the snow storm so I was concerned about what to do and who to call etc. The company called me @8pm on the night before to let me know what was going on...

if you want to see NYC this is the way to do it, if you were to add up the cost to do all the attractions it would be more cost effective to fly. The staff are friendly and professional and the helicopters are pretty cool. A great fun experience.
