I took a flight from 5 pm in December, and the night view was very beautiful and really moving. The heliport is just a short walk from the ferry terminal, so it was easy to access. All the staff were kind and talked to me a lot when I was traveling alone, and the time in the waiting room was a good memory. If I can come to NY again, I would like to ride a helicopter again.

Fantastic flight with a clear blue sky, the pilot Keenan was very informative and friendly, 4 of my family had never flown in a helicopter before and the came off overwhelmed by it. Well worth it and it ticked all our boxes thank you. The ground crew were also very friendly and good fun too.
