Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $84 for a 12- to 15-minute New Yorker helicopter tour (a $139 value)
  • $110 for an 18- to 20-minute ultimate helicopter tour (a $184 value)
  • $167 for a 25- to 30-minute deluxe helicopter tour (a $279 value)

During the New Yorker tour, copters take sightseers over New York Harbor and get so close to the Statue of Liberty that passengers can see her perfectly sculpted nose hairs. The chopper then takes in views of famous locations such as the Empire State Building, Central Park, and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The ultimate tour extends the sightseeing as it cruises up the Hudson River toward the George Washington Bridge and over landmarks such as Columbia University and Yankee Stadium (on non-game days). The deluxe tour incorporates everything in the New Yorker and ultimate tours as well as destinations such as Coney Island and the manmade Hoffman Island. See more information on each tour here.

Helicopter Flight Services, Inc.

Once the chopper lifts off from the Hook Pier Heliport and rises above New York Harbor, the Big Apple's sprawling metropolis fills passengers' sightlines. Rotors spinning, the copter flies past the Statue of Liberty and toward the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and other looming examples of urban architecture. During these tours, sightseers sit comfortably within one of the company's five Bell 407 helicopters, which boast giant windows and enough legroom to roundhouse kick roving bands of skydivers looking to freeload their way onto the aircraft. The helicopter pilots also charter their aircraft on trips to cities including Boston and Atlantic City.
