Wings Air Helicopters' band of experienced pilots advocate the beauty of airborne travel through charter services, flight lessons, and an aerial film-production studio. Luxury jets, decked out with sectional couches, meeting tables, and bars, grant passengers and their mobile studio audiences safe travels with charter and cargo services. Within helicopter cockpits, Bose noise-canceling headsets block out the hum of spinning propellers to ensure clear communication during charters and tours. Wings Air Films offers a wide range of aerial production services, supplying movie helicopters and camera platforms to capture bird's-eye shots of famous landmarks or Waldo sightings for motion-picture and television industries.
NJ Chopper ferries passengers into New York City’s cloudscape to capture aerial views of its sprawling and iconic skyline. After loading guests into a fully equipped Bell helicopter, an ace pilot propels sight seekers on a 30-minute tour that begins with VIP views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island before rounding into lower Manhattan for panoramic peeks at the Brooklyn Bridge and Ground Zero. Passengers can admire a retina-grabbing array of the low-altitude landscapes peppering the Hudson River – including Midtown, Central Park, and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier – as the copter swoops over its historic shores. Return trips treat peepers to views of the Palisades’ craggy cliffs, and passengers can blow kisses and spitballs at their favorite players when flying over Giants Stadium and the Meadowlands Sports Complex. An included video of your voyage accompanies each flight, ensuring eternal commemoration of airborne vistas and alleged Woody Allen sightings.
Flight is a magical word. It can conjure images of blue sky, sounds of rushing wind, and the feelings of a freedom only known by breaking gravity's bounds with a combination of lift, thrust, and fairy dust. Flight is a word so magical, in fact, that it can even make a word like "school" seem cool. Unlike traditional schools, Louis Fly Academy doesn't lock its students up inside a brick-and-mortar building filled with chalk dust and outdated science books. Instead, its instructors guide them through aerial tutorials inside a fleet of Cessnas and Piper aircraft. Such tours begin with discovery flights for both airplane and helicopter pilots to give aspiring pilots tastes of high altitudes, allowing them to take a set of the controls and to log their time toward potential certification. A series of instructional packages prepares students for such certifications, with curricula that range from courses for a private pilot's license to a multiengine rating.
The thump of the rotors. The sound of the wind. The view of the landing pad receding into the distance below. With a versatile range of motion and wraparound windows that cast the surrounding skies in a stunning panorama, the helicopter isn't merely a vehicle: it's a window into unseen worlds. The flight instructors at Flying Helicopters Made Easy want everyone to experience the wonders of flight; that's why they spend their days teaching students how to become better and safer helicopter pilots. Inside Robinson Helicopter Company’s choppers, instructors lead flights that include introductory flights, private- and commercial-pilot certification flights, and training flights for licensing. They also operate scenic flights, which allow visitors to enjoy the skies surrounding New York City while drinking in 360-degree views of the metropolis and surrounding coastline.
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.
