TOURS:

See New York City from a different perspective. Our 4 helicopter sightseeing tours, one of which is combined with a boat cruise, provide you with a bird's eye view of Manhattan and the surrounding area in comfort and style. Our helicopters are equipped with heat and air conditioning as well as a Bose stereo system to help you relax and enjoy the ride.

Marvel at the splendid architecture of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and more as you travel down the Hudson River to the New York Harbor and the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum. See the George Washington and Verrazano bridge that keep Manhattan connected. Reflect on New York's historic landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village, South Street Seaport and the 120 year old Brooklyn Bridge. Baseball fans can even cheer for the Yankees above the stadium!

CHARTERS:

Whether you are taking a quick trip to the airport or heading to the Hamptons for the weekend, a helicopter charter offers a quick, easy, and comfortable alternative for travel in and out of the metro area. A helicopter charter is faster than a car service and able to travel farther into New York City than an airplane.

Airport Transfers by helicopter can significantly reduce your travel time to and from New York City airports. Driving between Manhattan and airport areas could take more than an hour in unpredictable and aggravating traffic. Airport Transfers by helicopter typically take less than 10 minutes, giving you more time in the day for everything else. Airport Transfers are available between Manhattan and the Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, and Teterboro Airport as well as between the airports. Complimentary ground transportation is provided between the airline terminal and the helicopter landing area to get you to your destination quickly.

Thank you to all the guys at Helicopter Services for giving us an unforgettable experience. We booked the VIP trip (30-35 minutes) and it did not disappoint. Helicopter Services were amazing as we were booked to fly on the Tuesday and then the heavens opened. We telephoned and were placed to fly the following day, at no extra cost. Excellent... More

Booked this through Thompson Ticket services as part of my 50th birthday visit to New York. First the good bits :- Helicopter flight was amazing, over Manhattan just after sunset the city looked beautiful. My son was in a wheelchair and they were very patient getting him in. I can thoroughly recommend it. The Sea Tour was also excellent, going... More

Definitely one of the best things about the trip. The city looks so beautiful from the helicopter and the whole experience was positive and only positive. Words can't describe how worth the money this helicopter flight is. Highly recommended.

This experience was well worth the money! My family and I booked this trip for my 18th birthday, and it was the best experience ever! The staff there were so friendly and helpful, and as a person who doesn't like flying, i felt so at ease with the pilot and in the helicopter itself. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

I can't describe how amazing it was, I had never been in a helicopter before and the views of NYC were breathtaking. It cost us about £140 each and was worth every penny. WOW
