Zip Aviation’s professional celestial chauffeurs whisk patrons across the New York skyline upon the cushy seats of state-of-the-art Bell helicopters. Patrons soar above the five boroughs during an 18- to 20-minute Big City tour, while knowledgeable guides regale them with information in their choice of English, Spanish, French, German, or select dialects of Pig Latin. Marvel at the Hot Wheel–size cars lining the George Washington Bridge, and pay respects as the vessel troupes past the General Grant National Memorial tomb. Tours end with a jaunt to the Yankee Stadium, where passengers can wave to fanatical off-season crowds and savor the lingering scent of tragically out-of-reach sausages. Zip Aviation is often particularly busy during holidays, so reservations are recommended well in advance and holiday tours are subject to availability.

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.
