From downtown skyscrapers to the Statue of Liberty, New York City is larger than life, with an iconic skyline. This helicopter flight across Manhattan and the Hudson River gives you panoramic views of the city that you can’t get from street level. Spot One World Trade Center, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building, and snap memorable photographs from above during this flight.

What to Expect

Make your way to a heliport at Pier 6 and the East River in downtown Manhattan to meet the pilot and climb into a state-of-the-art helicopter.

Lift off above Manhattan as the view opens up to include city parks, buildings, and landmarks. On your trip, you’ll spot Governor’s Island, Ground Zero, the Statue of Liberty, and New York Harbor, and get an amazing perspective on the skyline.

When you reach the WWII-era USS Intrepid, bank back along the Hudson River, watching for the Chrysler Building, MetLife Building, and Empire State Building.

Keep your camera ready, as the top-down photo opportunities are unmatched from beginning to end. When your flight concludes, touch down at the Manhattan heliport, close to public transit and top Manhattan attractions.

Speechless and overwhelmed

I have just read some of the negative reviews and I mean... duh.. get over it!! There are plenty of windows for every one to see and take photos and the pilot ensures everyone gets to view the whole of the New York sky line....More

This was my first helicopter flight and it was a breathtaking experience. We were very lucky and had much more air time than expected but nevertheless, great help, great pilot and of course, fantastic surrounding in Manhattan. The only thing I would not recommend is...More

We had several pics taken.. about 6 in all and we paid $35.00 for all 6 on a memory stick. Well worth it as the pics were awesome.
