Excellent trip, friendly pilot and very accommodating staff, bit of a wait between flight n boat trip, but excellent bar nearby!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We missed our flight due to an oversight on the booking receipt. When you copy and paste the address on the email and create an event in the iPhone calendar, it creates a hyperlink to the GPS map, but the part that says Downtown Heliport is not highlighted. If you are unfamiliar with NYC piers and you follow the link, it takes you to Pier 92, on the Hudson River. We showed up on time, but on the complete opposite side of town. Fortunately, Our flight was cancelled due to weather and we were issued a refund but it was our last night in NY and we were unable to rebook for the next night. We definitely want to rebook the next time we are in NY, but in the meantime, I thought I would send in this information to help other future travelers that use iPhones (after all, we are such a small sub-set of the population!:) I am giving a 5 star rating because I can only imagine how amazing this trip will be once we are able to- Merry Christmas and we hope to fly with you soon!
