Though the human mind longs for flight, the human body craves the soothing foot massages of gravel driveways. Get your feet off the ground with today's Groupon to Zip Aviation. Choose between two options:

  • For $149, you get an 18- to 20-minute Big City helicopter tour for one (a $245 value).
  • For $249, you get an 18- to 20-minute Big City helicopter tour for two (a $490 value).

Zip Aviation's professional celestial chauffeurs whisk patrons across the New York skyline upon the cushy seats of state-of-the-art Bell helicopters. Patrons soar above the five boroughs during an 18- to 20-minute Big City tour, while knowledgeable guides regale them with information in their choice of English, Spanish, French, German, or select dialects of Pig Latin. Marvel at the Hot Wheel–size cars lining the George Washington Bridge, and pay respects as the vessel troupes past the General Grant National Memorial tomb. Tours end with a jaunt to the Yankee Stadium, where passengers can wave to fanatical off-season crowds and savor the lingering scent of tragically out-of-reach sausages. Zip Aviation is often particularly busy during holidays, so reservations are recommended well in advance and holiday tours are subject to availability.

Zip Aviation

Typically, you can only see Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and Yankee Stadium in less than an hour while leafing through a stack of New York postcards. However, Zip Aviation confounds expectations, whisking tourists over those landmarks and more on one of three helicopter tours in 12–30 minutes. Helmed by a team of pilots with an impeccable safety record, the tours grant passengers a bird’s-eye view of the city aboard their Bell helicopters. The aviation company complements its sightseeing excursions with an array of other transit services, including private charters and special-event transportation options.


The views were awesome and you get to fly up and back down the Hudson river.
