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!

It was sensational! The pilot Nic (an Englishman) was more than friendly and explained the skyline great. The procedure at the airfield was completely straightforward. Only the way there was a surprise. Contrary to other providers that start in Jersey, Ross Aviation is located in White Plains. By train and then by taxi, that's not a problem. All in all - great!

I was in New York with my daughter on December 18th and we booked this flight! What can I say, shit expensive but still worth every penny! The planned date was December 17th, but we received a call that the weather did not allow it. So plan in time for a replacement day. We were picked up at the hotel on time by a very nice driver, who also explained and showed us a lot! The drive to the small airport somewhere in the pampas takes a good hour, depending on the traffic, longer! But when you're new in town, that's more nice than annoying. As soon as we arrived at the airport, the small helicopter was rolled onto the runway, brief instruction, the pilot took photos of us at the helicopter (with our cameras) so we shouldn't buy anything later, and off we went! Indescribably beautiful, nice pilot who explains everything. The flight lasted almost an hour! If it's in your budget, don't think twice!
