Helicopter Tours: An Innovative Brand of New York City Tours

There are many tours you can take while in New York City.  Between double decker buses, ferries, and walking tours, how can you choose?  You may hear stories of the long elevator ride to the top of the Empire State Building and the long-winded ferry ride that shows the Statue of Liberty from a distance, but why not create your own unforgettable memories?  Why not see the sights from the comfort and closeness that comes with a helicopter ride.

A helicopter ride around NYC is special and personal.  These New York City tours are great for families, friends, photographers, tourists, couples, and even first-time dates.  From the height of a helicopter flight, you can see the expanse that is the city of New York, with its beautiful lights and distinctive destinations.  Riders can experience the sights from an exclusive perspective that not many people get to enjoy, all while seated comfortably within a luxury helicopter.  Want to get cozy during the ride?  Want to have alone time with your children to offer your own educational insights?  You can make your tour private for an additional cost.

Different helicopter companies offer different routes, but you can expect different options of tours because of NYC’s size.  You can see most, if not all, of the same sights that you would see on other New York City tours (with the advantage of a different viewpoint).  Tours can include any of the following: the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, Chrysler Building, Central Park, Coney Island, Ground Zero, Financial District, and more.

Any great tour of NYC will include a great tour guide.  When searching for a knowledgeable helicopter tour guide, you must take two factors into consideration: a) New York City smarts, and b) helicopter smarts.  Such a guide will most likely come from an award-winning and seasoned company with state-of-the-art helicopters and well-trained aviation experts.  You want to be safe and comfortable as well as in the know.  Oftentimes, helicopter tour guides offer unique information on buildings and other NYC spots of which other tour guides are not aware.  This results from the special role that helicopter pilots take up in the tall city of New York City.  You, too, can be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
