What You Can Expect

Manhattan Sky Tour: New York Helicopter Flight

Manhattan Sky Tour: New York Helicopter Flight

Take to the New York City skies for a 12-15-minute helicopter flight above the landmarks of the Big Apple.

Head to the downtown Manhattan Heliport on Pier 6 for your flight. Your exact takeoff will depend upon the option selected, with morning, midday, afternoon and late afternoon time frames available. Once you’re strapped in to your state-of-the-art helicopter, it’s time to begin your ride.

Glide into the air as the ground recedes below you, watching as some of the city’s most famous parks, buildings and landmarks come into view. Near downtown Manhattan you’ll be able to see Governor’s Island, Ground Zero, the Statue of Liberty and greater New York Harbor. Continue up the edge of the island, admiring the majestic views of skyscrapers along the way, before reaching the USS Intrepid, a World War II-era aircraft carrier that now houses a museum. 

Head back down the Hudson River, taking in sweeping views of the city and well-known landmarks like the Chrysler Building, Met Life Building and Empire State Building as you fly. Back down near the city’s harbor you’ll be able to spy historic Ellis Island, once the entry point for millions of immigrants in search of a better life in the United States, along with other New York attractions like Battery Park, the Federal Reserve Bank and the New York Stock Exchange. 

Whether you’re a seen-it-all New Yorker or visiting the city for the first time, this aerial ride is a trip to remember.

Please note: The listed price does not include a US $40 per person heliport/security fee, payable at the time of tour check-in.
