From the air, you have an amazing view of New York. It is a fantastic opportunity to get a bird’s-eye view of the skyscrapers, Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. This flight will show you all of the highlights of Manhattan. In addition, without the doors, there is nothing to obscure your view. It even gives you the opportunity to make a great ‘shoe selfie’ with the Statue of Liberty literally at your feet! It is possible to secure all cameras, telephones and other loose objects with a cable, so don’t worry about dropping anything.

Eric’s Tip: “I have experienced a few helicopter tours in New York, so was very curious about this one. I loved it! It’s a whole different experience than the other flights. Definitely an activity for the ‘daredevils’, photographers, or people who, just like me, have experienced the ‘normal’ helicopter flights and want to try something a bit different.”
