  • Personal headsets ensure you can hear the pilot’s commentary

What to Expect
Make your own way to Linden Municipal Airport in New Jersey (a 35-minute train ride from New York Penn Station). On arrival, receive a safety briefing and overview of the trip itinerary. After takeoff, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island come into view. Keep your camera at the ready for a bird’s-eye view of the Manhattan skyline from above. As you fly over Williamsburg and the Brooklyn bridges, you spot the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and United Nations. The pilot’s live commentary ensures you never miss a landmark. Next fly over Central Park—this is a rare opportunity that many helicopter tours do not include. You also get a look at Times Square and Rockefeller Center from above before continuing along the Hudson River. End the tour on a high note by soaring past the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial, before returning to the departure point.

What an amazing opportunity! This is so worth the money. It was easy to schedule. The company contacted me the day of to confirm and make sure we had correct directions. Biggest bonus we took off in NJ and the fees were much more affordable than the NYC counterpart.
