We recently visited New York from Australia and wanted to see the Statue of Liberty whilst we were there, however werent interested in doing a Helicopter flight. As you get off the Subway you are surrounded by people wanting you to take different tours, all of whom we said NO too. We had a few questions about the Ferry to Straton Island and asked Andre who it runs out works for Zip Aviation. He was a fantastic young guy....was more than happy to answer our questions to help us out................I then asked him about the Helicopter tours which seemed appealing as we were NOT pushed into it or had it forced on us.....so we did it. Andre was fantastic he deserves to be looked after so look him up when next in New York.

We chose zip aviation because it had such good reviews and it lived up to our expectation!
Our flight was awesome the safety briefing was good and informative
The staff where very very professional .it was so cool flying close to the staue of liberty and seeing governors island was so cool too we flew up the Hudson River and the city just looked amazing on a sunny day !
Take off and landing were very smooth our pilot Andrew made us feel very special on our trip !

Enjoyed spectacular trip over New York yesterday with our pilot Andrew who made it a magical experience. Unforgettable images of the Statue of Liberty Yankee stadium and the iconic manhattan skyline. You've just got to do it!!

Wonderful competent crew, great sights, didn't want to get off! The waiting room is clean and comfortable, the safety video is in English and brief and to the point. We had a perfect day, my niece got to ride shot gun next to the pilot! The view of Governors Island, and the guided tour on the headsets was very informative. (also in English). My tummy would have liked all forward facing seats.
Nice they take reservations! Would love to do it again, seeing a different part of the city!

Having done a bit of homework in the UK before we left for USA - Zip Aviation appeared the best NYC helicopter tour that guaranteed a private tour for the 3 of us - we were not disappointed. The arrival staff were welcoming and fun - our pilot (sorry missed his name) was excellent and the combination of his commentary and the recorded information provided a good guide for the 'new to New York' tourist. Manhatten from the sky is a "must see".
