Helicopter Ride in DUMBO

Select Local Merchants

Manhattan Helicopters' staff zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.

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.
