Highlights
Take a thrilling helicopter ride to see New York City from above
Enjoy unrivaled aerial views of Manhattan’s most spectacular sites
Avoid surprises with all fees and surcharges included in the tour price
Enjoy panoramic views of the city skyline and landmarks like Central Park
What to expect
Embark on your tour at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, near the southern tip of New York City’s most striking borough. Begin with a jaunt around its soaring skyscrapers—the Freedom Tower, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center. Cruise over the harbor and take in views of France’s famous gift to the United States, the Statue of Liberty, the tiny island where your great grandparents may have entered America, and the world’s first steel suspension bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge. Extend your tour and head north up the Hudson River, checking out America’s first public park (Central Park), one of the country’s oldest universities (Columbia) and the jarringly beautiful Palisades, the sheer cliffs rising just west of Manhattan, and America's longest suspension bridge, the Verrazano Bridge.

I'm really happy that on my second visit to USA I've finally take a flight with this company! All the people were so friendly, good jokes, great attention to all details, and our pilot made the flight a really fantastic experience - his story about bridges, islands, skyskrapers etc were amazing!!! If you can afford it, please, buy 30-minutes deluxe tour, because it's worth it. Thanks to everybody at HeliNY!!!

Amazing Flight!
Booked this flight as a team incentive, and very glad we did! Our first booking was delayed due to the weather so we took our flight a few weeks later than planned. Whole team was amazing, very thoughtful, excellent attention to detail, and really looked after us. Would highly recommend.
