Had an amazing time here, we chose a 15min flight and the lady pilot was incredibly knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed her job (who could blame her!!) There's something very special flying around Manhattan in a helicopter and something everyone should try once!

Once in a lifetime adventure (twice if you're a lucky girl). Lovely, friendly service and staff. Pilot was knowledgeable of the area and put us at ease. Definitely recommend this helicopter company.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
