Your Experience

Once you hop into your luxury helicopter at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, you will set off on your stunning, 15 minute aerial tour of the city. Soar above New York and get up close to the landmarks that form the city's enchanting skyline. Your route will first take you past the Governer's Island, right adjacent to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, which has been a welcoming beacon to visitors to the New World for over a century! Head south to see the suspended bridge that is the gateway between Staten Island and New York, the Verazzano Narrows Bridge. Look out upon the bays that make up Staten Island before heading to a very different island indeed. Every summer, Coney Island turns into the amusement park, fever dream of every kid in New York and there's no better way to admire it's intricacies than from the air!

Cruise up the length of Manhattan until you get to the impressive George Washington Bridge before making your way back and, while doing so, getting a closer look at iconic parts of the city. Marvel at the architecture of the United Palace Cathedral and Trinity Church as well gazing in awe at the arena that can hold up to 50,000 screaming fans, Yankee Stadium. Hover past the Grant National Memorial and the signature turquoise roofs of Columbia University's buildings. Enjoy an intimate view of the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and Times Square, practically synonymous with New York itself. Get a closer look at the U.S.S. Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and admire the organized chaos that is Chelsea Piers. Soar past the West Village and Tribeca before you can examine Ground Zero and see the 9/11 Memorial, in remembrance of the day that changed the city forever.

You will then make your way back to the heliport, having experienced New York in a way that most people never get to!

The prices are a little steep, you may have to shell out a little more than you've expected but you're going to see the city in a whole new light!
