Night life when in the air!!
Moned_T, May 2022
To see how beautiful the city lights are as the helicopter flys around it. Looking down and seeing everything you can’t see when driving.
Amazing Time
Ebony_M, Apr 2022
Looking down on the city all lit up was amazing! Watching flights take off and land from Newark Airport was interesting to see!! We were two and flew with a family of 4, I wish there was a way for the two parties to be on separate channels when speaking to each other.
Fabulous Trip
Mark_W, Apr 2022
The staff were excellent, the helicopter was new and clean and the pilot was very informative. Great views of NYC. The airport is in NJ so its a bit of a trek via train and taxi to the airport, it then takes time to fly to NYC... However, the trip itself was great.
It was Awesome

Good and bad
Anjum_A, Mar 2022
Personally I did not enjoy it I was sat in the middle the seat is tiny you can’t move your head to see the views because of the head sets they don’t sit right pull your head back waste of my money however the kids were sat by the windows they enjoy it . It was all rushed to get on the helicopter and to get out of the helicopter they don’t let you take any pic of yourself inside the helicopter because we did a night time trip and the phone flashes they don’t let you take any pic outside in front of the helicopter either with your family .
Worth every penny
