Lose yourself in the skyline

Flying over New York is a magical experience. You'll get some perspective on what all the ruckus really looks like from so far away. Enjoy the tranquility of the sky while looking at all the lights below.

Get a bird's eye view

New York on street level can be intimidating. When you're darting around the sky, checking out landmarks from above, you get a new angle on the Big Apple.

Riding a helicopter is fun

You'll feel a little bit like a spy when you strap yourself into the seat and put on your headset - not to mention the stunning views of the city you'll get from the top.

Skip the lines

When you're on a helicopter tour in New York, you can bet you won't need to wait in line to see the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty. You'll fly past and get up close.

Get engaged!

A New York helicopter tour is a spectacular place to pop the question. When you're booking your tour, ask about it. Most tour companies are more than happy to help you ask your beloved if they want to marry you.

Planning Your Visit

When is the best time to go?

The city's colors are at their most beautiful in fall, and the winter brings postcard charm to the gridded streets. We recommend taking a helicopter tour in the fall or the spring. The weather is turning and you'll see lots of beautiful foliage from all angles.
