New York Helicopter Tour at Night

Take a seat in a helicopter and admire life in Manhattan below you. From the helicopter, you will see taxis driving, and people taking photos on observation decks such as Edge and Empire State Building and you’ll see the city from a completely different perspective. The Statue of Liberty is illuminated and you see the lights of the ferries navigating the East River. This night helicopter tour is more of a magnificent experience than a sightseeing tour.

Eric’s Tip: “Never taken a helicopter tour over Manhattan before, and unsure whether to book a day or an evening flight? Then take a flight during the day! This way, you will be able to see all the famous sights of New York properly. At night this can be a bit more difficult.”

Helicopter Night Tour from Manhattan

If you want to take a helicopter flight in the dark, this is no problem during the winter months. From early November to mid-January, you can also book a helicopter tour from Manhattan departing at 17:00. It gets dark in New York at this time. Between April and September, it gets dark later, so it is best to book the night-time helicopter ride from around 20:30. If you fly earlier, you will fly during sunset.
