your experience

Once you hop into your luxury helicopter at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, you will set off on your stunning, 17-20-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 north to see the George Washington Bridge, one of the busiest bridges in the world. Admire the best Manhattan tourist attractions from above including the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Empire State Building, and One World Trade Center.

Above midtown, admire the entire length of Central Park, spot Columbia University, or the historic Grant’s Tomb, the largest mausoleum in North America. Cruise past New Jersey’s beautiful palisade cliffs or northern Manhattan’s Inwood Hill Park, the last natural forest in this urban metropolis. While you're at it, you'll even get to catch a glimpse of the Yankee Stadium as you soar above the Hudson River. You will then make your way back to the heliport, having experienced New York in a way that most people never get to!
