See New York City’s amazing skyline lit up in a perspective normally reserved for private charters! 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.


  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views

The helicopter experience was a complete surprise for my girlfriend. Suffice it to say, knocked it out of the park. The city lights at night from a helicopter! How cool is that? As a retired military helicopter pilot I was completely impressed with the company. Real professionals and part of the great experience. The aircraft itself was totally plush, a very comfortable, smooth and quiet ride! Well, compared to Army helicopters. Seriously would do this again. Highly recommend.

The staff was friendly, funny and eased any anxiety immediately. From the second we were picked up to dropped back off. The pilot was hilarious with his commentary while noting facts while navigating the breathtaking views. Would recommend 100%
