Planning Your Visit

When is the best time to go?

The city's colors are at their most beautiful in fall, and the winter brings postcard charm to the gridded streets. We recommend taking a helicopter tour in the fall or the spring. The weather is turning and you'll see lots of beautiful foliage from all angles.

What people are saying about New York City

30 minute flight will cover mid to upper Manhattan. If you want the full experience including Brooklyn Bridge and the statue then I suggest the 45 min package. Nevertheless, it IS a must when coming the NY. The scenery is great and it's an experience of a lifetime. Kevin was our pilot and he was very informative and polite. We actually got a little more time than we booked for and we appreciate that!

As we didn’t have a fixed time slot the ground hosts looked after us very well and we where fitted on the next flight , we had a great experience and the pilot was very knowledgeable about the city ,the whole flight was brilliant.

This is by far the best Helicopter Ride we was on. The views are Amazing!!! They staff is sooo nice. we ended up riding alone, best trip ever. We highly recommend this & for the price you can’t beat it.

It was spectacular! Take the extra time to take train to White Plains and get a first class private tour of New York City. Our pilot, Lance, was phenomenal!

It was a great experience! The staff at the airport were friendly and professional and the pilot made it great flying experience.
