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.

At Icon Aviation Group, flying instructors put four kinds of light sport aircraft to good use training future pilots of all ages, young and old, for private pilot's licenses, instrument ratings, commercial flight instructor ratings, and airline transport ratings. Pilots-in-training log hours in the cockpits of a Piper Warrior, Beechcraft Baron B-55, Mooney M20E, and Aeronca 7AC, with access to all the instruments and gauges needed for eventual solo flying. The aviation school couples its in-air instruction with classroom learning back on solid ground, where pupils can safely build confidence under the guidance and command of experienced pilots and work on honing their cabin-announcements voice.
