This unique experience starts at Linden Municipal Airport, in Linden, NJ in one of Helicopter Flight Services’ 6-passenger Bell407 helicopters or 7-passenger high-visibility Airbus EC130T2 helicopters.

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

Guests will fly the length of Central Park, glimpsing Yankee Stadium before turning around at the top of Manhattan! They will fly above the George Washington Bridge, one of the busiest bridges in the world.

First off I can’t thank the staff of the helicopter ride enough! After planning the trip to linden airport with no hiccups we arrived at linden station to find we could not get a cab and arrived at the airport 5 mins late to find we had missed our flight by 5 mins. The staff were very helpfull friendly and most of all ensured we didn’t miss out on this fantastic experience! We was up in the air within 30 mins of arrival and so glad we were! Great flight great knowledge and a really fun and enjoyable experience with fantastic views. Bit of a treck to get there however no problems getting back to Manhattan. Definitely recommend.
