From the sidewalks of New York City, it can be difficult to gain perspective. So to take in the entire city, you’ll need to conquer that fear of heights! With the New Yorker Helicopter Tour, you will have the unique experience of marveling at New York’s finest sights with a bird’s eye view.

There are traditional sightseeing tours, and then there’s the New Yorker Helicopter Tour. With this spectacular, unique touring experience, you’ll have the paramount view of America’s largest city. Soar over dozens of infamous landmarks, including the gleaming Chrysler Building, the ominous Empire State Building, and the iconic Statue of Liberty. Glide over historical structures such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, and much more!

Helicopter Flight Services operate five Bell 407 helicopters – a safe, fast, and powerful helicopter known as the sports car of the air. The spacious, comfortable cabin will make your viewing experience delightful and memorable. Manhattan’s skyline is one of its most extraordinary traits, with over 570 skyscrapers over 468.9 square miles. The 1920s brought a large economic boom that boasted a developing skyline of unparalleled skyscrapers. Despite the effects of the Great Depression in the 1930s, New York showed resiliency in constructing some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers of the era, developing Art-Deco marvels still intact today. So many astounding, historical buildings reign tall and proud in New York. Do not pass up the opportunity to admire them from your cozy helicopter vantage point!
