Overview

Get a bird's-eye view of New York City on a brief helicopter tour that soars over the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center, and Central Park. While helicopter tours can become expensive quickly, this flight is just long enough to see all the top sights without spending extra time in the air, making it ideal for budget-minded visitors who want to get a comprehensive view of the city.
  • Enjoy a whirlwind sightseeing tour of New York City by helicopter
  • Hear informative commentary from your pilot as you go
  • See more of the city than you can on foot or ground tours
  • Depart from New York's Downtown Heliport, with a choice of several flight times throughout the day

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This short-but-sweet NYC helicopter tour is more budget-friendly than comparable sightseeing flights.

Continue north along the island of Manhattan for a glimpse of the Brooklyn Bridge. Once you reach Midtown, enjoy a bird's eye view of the Empire State Building, the New York Times Building, and the Art Deco design of the Chrysler Building. See the large green sprawl of Central Park before heading back to the heliport in lower Manhattan.

Flight was brilliant, the only downside was that we were told it was running 20/30 minutes late but had to wait an hour and twenty minutes. But no drama

The pilot was a great guide! It was really fun, but very expensive. After we had thought we pre-paid everything, we were hit with a $40/person fee when we got there. Also, there were 6 passengers plus the pilot, so sightlines were limited at best. Other companies may have better visibility.

The prestations are much better than the rude welcome by the person in charge of security. This person wanted us waiting outside in freezing temperatures during the flight of our grandkids , arguing that the waiting room was small

Wait

Good afternoon. Our experience was great but I would have liked to have some kind of information (email, text or something) regarding longer than expected wait time. Since you guys didn’t fly Thanksgiving Day due to uncomfortable wind speed, that rolled over all customers from Thursday’s flights to Friday’s flights. Thank you
