We just turned up and bought the $200 trip which included flying all the way up to the Yankees stadium and back. It was the highlight of our holiday, sensational views and such a fun experience. The staff were very friendly and efficient - we were in the air within 10 minutes of entering the building. I can't believe some... More

Took the Manhattan Flight of 15 minutes and did not make a reservation. If you show up alone or maybe just the two of you without reservation they just might get you on one of the first flights out. In my case I was up and going in 5 minutes without standing in line.. How awesome it was!! Big Apple... More

A couple of days later, they emailed me and cancelled our flight. I've emailed them back several time from the UK to try an arrange another flight or get a... More

My Surprise Gift in NYC! I absolutely loved it and I cannot express how much this helicopter ride is worth trying. I was extremely shocked that we were going on this ride around NYC. I had never been on a helicopter ride before. We were an hour early and we were so anxious to get on that we asked if... More

My company had to host a dozen important guests from out of state and we decided to go with with NY Helicopter. As these were important guests and we were on a tight time line we requested and pay additional money to NY Helicopter as a warranty that they would fly the all of our guests in a timely manner....

However - they kindly rebooked us for the next day and we have blue skies & sunshine - perfect. Everything went very smoothly and the... More

Well hundreds of feet in the air with a view of NYC cant get any better. Helicopter pilot was great with his informative narration. If you can try and get the seat next to the pilot as you have a 180 ° view, can't get any better. Took the 20 minute tour and would not suggest the shorter flight. Worst... More

There a several different Helicopter operators there. I chose New York Helicopter I liked the information given without seeming pushy for a sale. They are super friendly. I would recommend these by my experience. The pilot was very informative all the way through the flight. Pick a sunny day if you are going to do this. Money well spent!
