Arrived early and so had quite a wait, but the staff were attentive. The day was perfect for flying, and the flight was everything I'd hoped it would be. As I was flying as a solo passenger, I had the opportunity to sit at the front with the pilot. Whilst this was good, it meant I had a slightly restricted view over the instrument panel. Would definitely recommend.

We boarded the Helicopter as the assistant took some pictures of us by the Copter. We flew over the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan and along the Hudson River for about 20 minutes. The seats were comfortable, the narrative was informative and the view was spectacular. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Safe, organized and fun!
