While visiting NYC for the second time, we decided to reach out to Boris (apparently the owner of NYC Air Service) to check availability for some airplane sightseeing over New York City.

Boris was very friendly and helpful in arranging our sightseeing flight. The flight itself was a fabulous experience and I can highly recommend it for everyone interested in the birds-eyes perspective of NYC. Charles, our pilot, was a passionate flying professional and a wonderful guide as well.

Even though we appeared to be the only airplane in the NYC airspace, there is absolutely no disadvantage in doing sightseeing in an airplane compared to the (very expensive) helicopter offerings. Plus, we got almost an hour of sightseeing for the price of a 10-minutes helicopter flight.

I purchased Daytime Manhattan Sightseeing Tour for my boyfriend's Birthday. It was such a memorable  experience! The tour lasted for an hour and we were able to see Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn. The pilot, Charles, was absoulutely great: professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
I would highly recommend this service!

I booked a 1 hour sight seeing flight around Manhattan for my parents, and they thought it was one of the best experiences they ever had!
The communication with Boris, their pilot, was easy while arranging all, and also during the flight.
You get a 1 hour flight not only over the river, but also over Central Park, returning on the other side. So much better than an expensive, crowded helicopter ride that just flies up and down the river for at best 15 minutes. The plane is less bumpy than the heli and a lot more personal. Boris is an excellent pilot and made my parents (who were really afraid to fly in a small plane) feel very comfortable. Never saw a bigger smile on their face than when they landed (and that was not because they were finally on the ground again).
The only downside is that the airport is located in Linden next to Newark and only reachable by car (in a decent time, i.e. bit less than an hour from central Manhattan).
Still, it was totally worth it! If you have the chance, don't doubt.
The whole experience was awesome, and my parents would absolutely recommend it!

Excellent experience today flying with Boris, arranged by Sergei, both high class professionals. The views over NYC were incredible and give a new experience of this dynamic city. Boris pointed out main landmarks and we were able to identify many places that we saw from the ground (not the same). We felt safe at all times and this has been a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend it.

The tour of the city was amazing. I loved seeing the city from a new perspecitive. Our Pilot, Boris Yusupov was also incredibly friendly and made the entire experience fun and memorable. A great activity for a date or just fun family time.
