Andrew took us on our flight over the city on the 20/11/2012 and omg words can not describe how amazing it was. We chose to book the manhatten sky tour ans seen the statue of liberty, the river, central park, empire state, wall street and so much more. We had booked a slot for 10:30 but turned up almost 90 mins late as we managed to get ourselves lost in Brooklyn somehow. However this wasn't a problem for any of the staff and we were rebooked straight away. We were briefed and took to the helicopter efficiently. I was sat in the front and had the most amazing view. Andrew the pilot was brilliant. He was fun and friendly. Especially wen he found out we were From liverpool! and made the experience magical. He got us the best views of the skyline. Everyone who goes to New York should book a helicopter trip with zip aviation!!! It's not a recommendation, its an absolute necessity!! Zip are great value fun and professional. If you're gunna do anythin in New York do this. Thanks zip - Kelly x

We all loved our helicopter tour in October. The whole process from booking online at home in UK, to arranging flight time, to arriving at heliport and taking the tour was simple and easy. All the staff were extremely courteous and friendly. Our flight was our 30th wedding anniversary gift and we will remember it always......special thanks to our pilot Andrew and Leyia in the office.

Took my boy on the 12-minute tour for his birthday. So memorable, and lasted between 15 to 20 minutes. Things were all efficiently organised by the staff on the ground. You can't take bags on, but you use a locker for your stuff. Andrew, our pilot, enhanced the tour with his descriptions and banter.

If I were to book another helicopter tour, or had to recommend one to anyone, I wouldn't choose any other company than zip aviation. I had a big issue and needed to reschedule my trip; customer service representative Tara personally handled all the steps needed to reschedule without me losing the money I spent on the trip. Tara herself called manhattan helicopters and made sure I would get another opportunity to go. I currently work as a consultant for a service operations management company, and I have personally never experienced such great customer service. I will certainly never forget what Tara has done for me, and I will always book with Zip aviation because of Tara and her hard work.
