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.

This is by far one of the best things I have ever done. The views of New York are breathtaking, the pilot so friendly and the flight was flawless. Please do yourself a favour, save up and take a helicopter ride with this company. They are the best! I will never forget this experience.

This was the best thing we did in NY. Very efficient service by HFS. President Obama decided to visit the city on the day we had booked but HFS contacted us and rearranged as best to suit us as possible. The flight organisation was very efficient and the time we spent in the air (15 mins) was plenty. When the... More

Absolutely brilliant. We were running late thanks to a slow taxi driver and heavy traffic, but we rang through and the staff kindly slotted us in anyway. The weather was superb, so the views were amazing.

Awesome experience! Nothing like seeing New York City from the air. Floyd, our pilot was great and gave us an awesome tour of the city! Sitting shotgun was an added bonus!

My partner and I were in NY for July 4th weekend, and to celebrate my 40th Birthday. We had booked the trip in advance back in the UK, and was a present from my Dad. I had searched many companies, but opted for HeliNY due to price (and because I like the colour of their helicopters!). Everything went smoothly, from... More

The teenage kids loved it! The staff in the heliport were very nice and helpful and our copter pilot gave a detailed... More

A helicopter flight around New York was our first planned excursion when we hit New York. I had already contacted the company to ask them a few questions and they had been very helpful. The whole pre-flight and flight was very professional and the views from the helicopter was fabulous, despite the day being some what hazy. We did expect... More

My husband was really keen to do a helicopter flight over NYC so we decided spur of the moment to head down to the heliport and see what we could do! We were greeted outside by a staff member who advised we could be up on a flight within the hour - great (I'm impatient!!). We were quickly organised, bags... More

A great way to get an overview over the entire Manhattan, Hudson river and George Washington Bridge. We got to see attractions like the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Central Park and the World Financial Centre from a perfect view. The staff were very nice and professional, and the pilot guided us and responded to questions throughout the tour.... More
