Choose from Two Options

  • $349 for a 30-minute sunset helicopter tour over New York City for two (a $672 value)
  • $149 for a 60-minute piloting experience for one (a $288 value)

During the private-pilot experience, a piloting instructor first teaches the student basic flight controls, flying techniques, and safety procedures in a training session that takes place on the ground. After taking off, the instructor hands over control of the helicopter, letting students soar over Westchester County, the Hudson River, and the coastlines of New York and Connecticut, all the while enjoying views of the Manhattan skyline in the distance. Private lessons are one-on-one, with no additional passengers permitted. Sixty-minute experiences consist of 30 minutes of flight training and approximately 30 minutes in the air. For an additional fee customers may purchase a DVD of their flight footage, filmed by an on-craft Go Pro camera.

Sightseers start their tour at Westchester County Airport, where their whirlybird will take off before swooping over to New York City. The tour, which Westchester Magazine recently highlighted as a creative date idea, grants passengers stunning aerial views of Central Park, Yankee Stadium, the Manhattan skyline, and the East River bridges, all of which are all the more striking set against a colorful sunset. The tour also highlights Westchester landmarks, including the nearby Rockefeller Estate of Kykuit and the Hudson Palisades. Wings Air’s helicopters seat up to six passengers. Children younger than 2 years old may fly at no cost if they can safely fit on one of their parent’s laps. A minimum of four passengers per tour is required, and singles or couples will be seated with other passengers.
