About
The near-perfect symmetry of Manhattan can really only be appreciated from the air. Soaring above New York City in an open-door helicopter is a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience for all those interested in aerial photography, including amateur photographers or pros looking to add aerials to their portfolio. No prior experience is required. Helicopters lift off from Westchester Airport in White Plains, NY and reach New York City airspace in just a few minutes. The flight path includes major landmarks such as Midtown, Central Park, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and many others on the way. Fliers wear seatbelts for safety. Camera straps are a must. Legs and feet must be kept inside the aircraft at all times. Shared flights require minimum 2 passengers to operate. Maximum weight 250 lbs per person and 500 lbs per helicopter.

FLYNYON Doors off experience
The best thing we did on our trip to NY was to do a 30 min doors off (feet out) helicopter ride over NY.
It was simply amazing!!! You have to be lucky with the weather as we were as day before and after all flights were cancelled and you can only rebook a flight on another date(not good if only staying 6 nights)
We were lucky and I can not recommend this experience highly enough.
FLYNYON were really professional, lovely staff, safety was well covered.

Hello, Your review is for the wrong company. We are Wings Air Helicopters, not FlyNYON. Although we do offer open-door flights as well, we do not allow feet outside the helicopter.
