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.

Amazing way to take in The City! We went on the Deluxe Tour, 30 mins. Brooklyn, New Jersey, Statue of Liberty, Washington Bridge, all of Manhattan. So beautiful! The quality of the customer service from the ground crew was lacking, although the pilot was fine....More

Absolutely brilliant way to see New York, amazing views and the pilot points out all the areas he's flying over, if you get the chance to do this you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I enjoyed the helicopter flight over the city, but I thought it was very expensive for such a short flight. The views were great and the pilot was very friendly and pointed out different landmarks and offered some commentary along the way....More

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
