From downtown skyscrapers to the Statue of Liberty, New York City is larger than life, with an iconic skyline. This helicopter flight across Manhattan and the Hudson River gives you panoramic views of the city that you can’t get from street level. Spot One World Trade Center, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building, and snap memorable photographs from above during this flight.

What to Expect

Make your way to a heliport at Pier 6 and the East River in downtown Manhattan to meet the pilot and climb into a state-of-the-art helicopter.

Lift off above Manhattan as the view opens up to include city parks, buildings, and landmarks. On your trip, you’ll spot Governor’s Island, Ground Zero, the Statue of Liberty, and New York Harbor, and get an amazing perspective on the skyline.

When you reach the WWII-era USS Intrepid, bank back along the Hudson River, watching for the Chrysler Building, MetLife Building, and Empire State Building.

Keep your camera ready, as the top-down photo opportunities are unmatched from beginning to end. When your flight concludes, touch down at the Manhattan heliport, close to public transit and top Manhattan attractions.
