Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to maneuver in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was “a pretty cool prom goin’ down.” Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

Choose from Two Options

  • $119 for a 12- to 15-minute New Yorker helicopter tour for one with photo (a $174 value)
  • $164 for an 18- to 20-minute Ultimate helicopter tour for one with photo (a $224 value)

During the New Yorker tour, copters take sightseers over New York Harbor and get so close to the Statue of Liberty that passengers can see her perfectly sculpted nose hairs. The chopper then takes in views of famous locations such as the Empire State Building, Central Park, and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The Ultimate tour extends the sightseeing as it cruises up the Hudson River toward the George Washington Bridge and over landmarks such as Columbia University and Harlem. See more information on each tour here.

Helicopter Flight Services, Inc.

Once the chopper lifts off from the Downtown Manhattan 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 fleet of 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. They also have a newly purchased EC130 Airbus Helicopter. The helicopter pilots also charter their aircraft on trips to cities including Boston and Atlantic City.

Customer Reviews

The company will share with you when you make your reservation that there is an Airport Fee of $40.00/per flight (that was for the 2 of us, I don't know what that would be with a group or with your children) So just be prepared for that cost, and $20.00 if you want to purchase a pic of you in front of the helicopter! We had an excellent time and they all were very professional about safety and protection, and the pilot did an awesome job! Very smooth ride as well :)
