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. Then marvel at the large green sprawl of Central Park before heading back to the heliport in lower Manhattan.

Super recomendable. Volvería a ir nuevamente. Un detalle, si quieren ir adelante con el piloto, tienen que ser de bajo peso. Yo peso 89 kg y me tocó ir atrás :

I booked this as a birthday surprise for my partner and he loved it! You fly up and down the Hudson river with views over Manhattan, Liberty and Ellis islands and Jersey. The pilot was great and gave some commentary over various landmarks.
Seems like a very professional company, the staff in the reception area were very friendly and so was the pilot. Some of the ground staff were a little rude though to be honest.
Please note that you have to pay an additional tax on the day, around 70.

Fantastic, the company were very friendly and helpful at the heliport and the pilot and the flight were brilliant. Next time I will book a longer flight but would still recommend this as a superb experience.

Had to put back a day due to bad weather, but when we got up in the air, all I can say is that it was over too soon, always the way when you are enjoying yourself. Pilot was very good with his commentary, also very funny. Great trip.

This was our favorite activity whilst in NYC for 10 days. Don't waste your trying to get to every corner of Manhattan, take the 15 min flight and see the entire island. Our pilot was fantastic, view unbelievable. Highly recommended.
