The attendants at Park2Fly at Newark Airport know that figuring out what to do with your car when heading out of town can be a source of frustration. Most public parking is short-term, tow trucks are always on the prowl for illegally parked cars, and daycares generally only accept cars that have been potty trained. The Park2Fly lot presents a solution to this conundrum of car ownership. Attendants keep watch over their flock of vehicles 24 hours a day while owners fly in and out of Newark Airport. Travelers simply pull into the lot and select an outdoor or indoor space on their own—or let a valet do it for no extra charge—and then wait a few minutes for the airport shuttle to arrive and whisk them off to the airport curb.
Park2Go.com’s friendly, uniformed staffers stand guard at their parking-lot posts 24 hours per day, keeping a safe watch over cars while their owners jet off to their destinations via Newark Liberty International Airport. Free shuttle vans arrive every 10 minutes to whisk travelers on the four-minute ride to the airport, picking them up and dropping them off right at their cars rather than making them search for a bus stop or hitch rides on another traveler’s rolling suitcase. While owners are away, cars remain secure throughout their stay, protected by surveillance cameras and a fence that surrounds the lot.
Located less than 1 mile from Newark Liberty International Airport's terminals, Park Plus Airport Parking shelters autos as their jet-powered brethren ferry passengers into and out of town. Drivers drop off their vehicles with sure-handed valet attendants, who carefully guide the steely steeds to secure parking spots with ample room for asphalt grazing. A complimentary 24-hour shuttle arrives at the lot regularly to transport flight-bound passengers and their luggage to the terminal in about two minutes. Upon return, customers can reclaim their rides by calling the phone number printed on their claim checks or warbling in tones that correspond to their cars' particular honks. Customers may also opt for Park Plus’s exclusive DropUp service, which features chauffeured rides to and from the airport in the comfort of their own cars. For an additional cost, a car-wash service primps and pampers vehicles while their owners are away.

Parking is based on 24-hour intervals, and long-term parking is available for extended trips. Frequent fliers may wish to take advantage of the frequent parkers program.
Core Helicopters launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated or open cockpits at Linden Airport, only 14 miles from New York City. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 30 minutes of in-depth training in flight controls and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, pupils take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back as the instructor pilot takes the helm. Each trainee leaves the lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. The flight time also counts toward a future pilot's license, should the student choose to pursue it.
Additional options including extended flight times, flight instructors demonstrating high-performing, advanced maneuvers, and flight-of-two flights where two helicopters will fly side-by-side together, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.
