Full description
Soar above Manhattan’s towering skyscrapers on an amazing 20-minute helicopter ride over the beautiful Big Apple. You'll see some of the most iconic sights, sailing past Wall Street, over historic Governor's Island, and coming face-to-face with Lady Liberty herself!

You’ll head up the Hudson river, continuing up the west side, and cruising past the piers in Chelsea, past the USS Intrepid and its awesome array of military planes, and then up to Central Park, the playground for New Yorkers.

On the way down the other side of the island, you'll have a jaw-dropping view of the Empire State Building and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. You’ll fly over Ground Zero where you can have a birds-eye view of the awesome construction taking place, with a tower now over 80 stories tall!

You’ll make a sweep over all 5 New York boroughs, and see all the major bridges and sights the Big Apple has to offer. In addition, you’ll pass over Yankee Stadium and Grant's Tomb before safely flying back to the heliport!
