Zip Aviation’s professional celestial chauffeurs whisk patrons to and from the New York skyline upon the cushy seats of state-of-the-art Bell helicopters during zippy 15- to 18-minute commuter flights. Big Apple–bound visitors can begin a city vacation or workday by soaring above the Bronx and the sparkling skyline of Manhattan at 120 miles per hour. When not poring over last-minute presentation notes, passengers can capture pictures of landmarks such as Central Park, the Empire State Building, and Yankee Stadium, where they can wave to fanatical off-season crowds and savor the lingering scent of tragically out-of-reach sausages. Upon request, a souvenir photo can commemorate the jaunt through the clouds.

Zip Aviation

Typically, you can only see Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and One World Trade Center 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. Tours are also available in nine different languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. The aviation company complements its sightseeing excursions with an array of other transit services, including private charters and special-event transportation options.
