New York Helicopter Tour: City Skyline Experience
From US$244,00

Get a rare view of the Manhattan skyline from above on this 20- to 25-minute small group helicopter tour. Listen to the pilot’s live commentary from personal headsets, ensuring you don’t miss any landmarks along the way. Capture photos of the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, Brooklyn Bridge, and Central Park, and make memories to last a lifetime.

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.
