What you can expect

This unique experience starts at Linden Municipal Airport, in Linden, NJ in one of Helicopter Flight Services’ 6-passenger Bell 407 helicopters or 7-passenger high-visibility Airbus EC130T2 helicopters.

The journey begins by flying past Newark International Airport towards Manhattan. En route to the New York Harbour, views of the illuminated Statue of Liberty will awe before viewing the skyscrapers of the Financial District. Flying north along the Hudson River, you will catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building, as well as Madison Square Garden, Hudson Yards, Chelsea, The West Village, SOHO and TRIBECA. The 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Centre are also in view.

There are great photo opportunities while crossing over Central Park, flying directly over New York City. From Central Park, Rockefeller Centre and the bright lights of Times Square can be seen! After passing over the Metropolitan Museum of Art the helicopter will turn around just north of Roosevelt Island returning along the same path, offering all passengers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.
