Best views of New York

Glorious day to be up in the air above this great city. Well organised and we were looked after. The pilot was so knowledgeable about all the places we flew over - so much so it was difficult to take it all in. Would we do it again ? Yes - of course.

Our pilots are some of the best and a great asset to us! We'd love to see you again next time you're in New York City!

Be careful because of backwards seats
Jeff_K
, Nov 2021
The experience had potential to be great but two seats in the helicopter are backwards facing the whole time so I was disappointed. They say it’s random based on weight and balancing the helicopter but it still doesn’t mean it’s fair. Nice views if I wouldn’t have to be turned around the whole time to see them. I have done 7 sightseeing helicopter rides in the various cities I have traveled and this was the only one with rear facing seats. For this level of money, everyone should be facing forward for maximum experience and the seats that are facing backwards should be less money because they are no where as desirable.

Thank you for your review! We fly Bell 407s and have 2 backward facing seats in the seating configuration. We fly many passengers in the backward facing seats and we feel that it still has an equal view of the city and all of its wonders!

Son wanted to go again as soon as we landed!

This was our first time to NY and what a way to start our trip! My son being the lightest of the people on board, got to sit next to the pilot in front. What a memorable trip for him, as well as me. Everyone at HeliNY was extremely friendly and professional. The pilot was great and explained what was what as we flew over the river. I’m jealous of the view my son had! All views were great and worth every penny! As soon as we landed, my son wanted to go back for another trip immediately!

Such a great experience. Took my Niece and Nephew from Washington state. My Nephew was able to sit in front with the pilot. Took tons of great pics and videos. Outstanding views of the city and Statue of Liberty. Definitely worth the money. An experience they will never forget.
