TOURS: See New York City from a different perspective. Our 4 helicopter sightseeing tours, one of which is combined with a boat cruise, provide you with a bird's eye view of Manhattan and the surrounding area in comfort and style. Our helicopters are equipped with heat and air conditioning as well as a Bose stereo system to help you relax and enjoy the ride. Marvel at the splendid architecture of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and more as you travel down the Hudson River to the New York Harbor and the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum. See the George Washington and Verrazano bridge that keep Manhattan connected. Reflect on New York's historic landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village, South Street Seaport and the 120 year old Brooklyn Bridge. Baseball fans can even cheer for the Yankees above the stadium! CHARTERS: Whether you are taking a quick trip to the airport or heading to the Hamptons for the weekend, a helicopter charter offers a quick, easy, and comfortable alternative for travel in and out of the metro area. A helicopter charter is faster than a car service and able to travel farther into New York City than an airplane. Airport Transfers by helicopter can significantly reduce your travel time to and from New York City airports. Driving between Manhattan and airport areas could take more than an hour in unpredictable and aggravating traffic. Airport Transfers by helicopter typically take less than 10 minutes, giving you more time in the day for everything else. Airport Transfers are available between Manhattan and the Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, and Teterboro Airport as well as between the airports. Complimentary ground transportation is provided between the airline terminal and the helicopter landing area to get you to your destination quickly.

This is nothing short of amazing. It's worth every penny even though you may think it's expensive. My partner had never been in a helicopter and was a bit worried as he is not a fan of flying but he loved every minute of it....More
