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.

Group of 4 went on this, good safety talk, fantastic weather and a great flight, only 20 mins but you got to see loads of landmarks and sights. Souvenir photo a reasonable price. Not cheap but a great way to see New York

3 of us took the Ultimate Tour and it was spectacular. Flying for 20 minutes above the iconic NY skyline on a beautiful May morning just cannot be beaten. The crew from start to finish were most professional and friendly. Even online queries were dealt with quickly and efficiently. One of the best trips I have ever taken. Just a... More

Went to NYC to celebrate husbands 50th birthday. After some research before our trip we knew this was a 'must do' although I was extremely nervous. There are a few companies to choose from and there were reps near the pier trying to get our business ( not in a pushy way though) We didn't book in advance as we... More

Definitely worth the money... well organised and professionally run. The views were amazing - our first time in a helicopter. This agency had good reviews and that helped us make up our minds to take the trip.

Absolutely amazing experience. Initially you might think it's a bit expensive but I assure you it's worth every penny. Professional, safe and informative, giving the best views of New York. My advice is save your money on Top of the Rock and Empire State Building and do this instead as the views and experience will live with you forever.

My friend and i were happy to deal with this agency : everything was well organized , staff were positive and attentive so did the tour itself . The pilot was a real guide by telling passengers about most famous spots and districts of NY and so on. A small tip : make a call first to book a seat... More

My wife and I were in NY for the first time and taking this helicopter trip was just an amazing experience that was the highlight of our holiday. It was a first for both of us. It was very well organised and the flight and the views were just a complete joy. Would recommend it to anyone.
