The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to finally move out of gravity's basement. Claim your own airspace with today's Groupon: for $399, you get a 30-minute helicopter ride over New York City for two (a $996 value), plus a video of the flight (a $20 value) from NJ Chopper in Fairfield (a $1,016 total value).
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.
