Private New York Helicopter Tour: City Skyline Experience

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 1,464.00

    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Linden, New Jersey train station. Meet a shuttle service at the Linden train station for the trip to Linden Municipal Airport, where this helicopter tour begins.

    Meet your private pilot and board the helicopter, then don a pair of headsets so you can hear the pilot’s commentary. Lift off and bank towards Manhattan, flying directly over Newark International Airport. If you’re flying at night, you’ll see the Statue of Liberty lit up on the skyline, then turn along the East River to pass over the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges; the pilot will help point out landmarks on the ground.

    Take in downtown skyscrapers, and keep your camera ready as you cross Central Park, with lines of sight to the Rockefeller Center and Times Square. Turn back down the Hudson River to get views of Madison Square Garden, the 9/11 Memorial, and the Freedom Tower, and catch one more glimpse of the Statue of Liberty before returning to Linden Airport, where this helicopter tour concludes.
