There is a new way to enjoy New York City. Not just panoramic terraces, yellow taxis, and famous shopping streets, the Big Apple also offers breathtaking views to its visitors from another unusual perspective: from above. And more precisely, the cockpit of a helicopter. One of the most important and well-known companies in New York, that provides these kinds of unique tours, is HeliNY.
Established in 1985, they specialize in sightseeing charters with locations at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport (NYC) and Linden Municipal Airport (NJ). Their main goal is to guarantee customers safe and exciting helicopter tours. To accompany you on your dream tour are Lesley Taylor and John Kjekstad who have over 60 combined years of experience in the aviation industry.
HeliNY offers personalized service that meets the needs of each client. In addition to safety, integrity, attentive services, and professionalism, both in flight and on the ground, the company uses Bell 407GX and Airbus EC130-T2 aircrafts, which are among the most silent helicopters in their category and, thanks to the Fly Neighborly program, fly with minimal acoustic impact.
If you decide to depart from Downtown Manhattan Heliport, you will have the option to see the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, Central Park, and many other NYC attractions, including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Chrysler Building, South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge. If instead, you decide to depart from New Jersey, you can fly past the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building, above Central Park and Times Square, and much more.
HeliNY is registered with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) and is recognized as a Wyvern Wingman Certified Operator and as an Argus Gold. They are also members of the Eastern Region Helicopter Council and of Helicopter Association International.
