What to Expect
This New York City helicopter tour takes flight from the Linden Municipal Airport in New Jersey.

There’s a shuttle that will take you from the train station in Linden to the airport. Once you arrive at the airport, board your helicopter for your flight tour, and soar above the city. See NYC lit up at night, and listen as your guide tells you fun facts while passing the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, and Chrysler Building, as well as passing by the Brooklyn Bridge and NYC neighborhoods. After your helicopter flight, you can take the shuttle back to the train station to catch a train back to NYC (own expense) or continue to your next destination on your own.
