An absolute must
Nov 2021
Breathtaking. An absolute must for anyone visiting NYC if you can stretch to it. Views are genuinely outstanding and there's no way you'll get anything close to them elsewhere. Helicopters look brand new, are incredibly comfortable and the pilots give great information. Couldn't recommend more.

Time Flies above the Hudson River!
Nov 2021
One Note: As I arrived, I could not present proof of purchase via email. I was emailed a flight reservation but I could not simply download this to my phone. I copied the email to MS-Word & converted it to a .pdf. It would be helpful if the staff simply verified the passengers Last Name via proof of a driver's license, etc. No staff member gave me a problem- but this is a suggestion.
There are no COVID Vaccinations to present to the staff; however, you need to sign a waiver.

The entire flight was supreme! A few weeks prior, I was hesitant; yet, I am glad I changed my mind! The staff/crew/pilot were all very courteous. As the passengers enter the Downtown Manhattan Heliport- they may store their bags/belongings in a locker & watch a 3-1/2-minute safety video.

No pun intended, after takeoff, this 20-25 minute voyage flies by! Time elapses quickly above the Hudson River. I went when the winds were close to 30-mph. It was awesome to see One World Observatory, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, the Hudson Piers, the New Jersey Side, & Yankee Stadium. This was money well-spent! Do It!

Safe, professional, clean and of course amazing tour /views of Manhattan!
Sep 2021
Trip was amazing from start to finish. Security, safety, professionalism, and of course amazing tour / views of Manhattan! Greeted at the front door, security checked, seamless check in, watched a safety video, escorted to the beautiful and clean aircraft. Assigned seats were given based on weights and then you're in the air! Windows were abundant and clean easy to get great photos. Up and down the Hudson River for us and my two kids (13 & 10) couldn't stop smiling and taking videos and photos. Highly recommend taking this adventure with HeilNY and getting this wonderful experience you and your friends/family will never forget!
