  • Core Helicopters
    Core Helicopters launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated or open cockpits at Linden Airport, only 14 miles from New York City. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 30 minutes of in-depth training in flight controls and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, pupils take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back as the instructor pilot takes the helm. Each trainee leaves the lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. The flight time also counts toward a future pilot's license, should the student choose to pursue it. Additional options including extended flight times, flight instructors demonstrating high-performing, advanced maneuvers, and flight-of-two flights where two helicopters will fly side-by-side together, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.

  • 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.

  • Liberty Helicopter Tours
    With more than 8 million people in New York City—and probably close to that many famous landmarks—the best way to see everything is from the sky. Liberty Helicopter Tours invites you to do just that as it soar over the Hudson River and right past the Statue of Liberty (as long as she isn't on her lunch break). Those sights are incredible, but they're just two of many available from Liberty's helicopters. Here are some key things to know about the company: Background: Liberty actually took flight as a charter business in 1986, transporting professionals to and from New York. In 1990, it added its sightseeing division. Fleet: The company's fleet currently includes 15 state-of-the-art Airbus Helicopters, which are renowned for their large cabins and reliability. Liberty's helicopters are serviced on a daily basis at their 24/7 maintenance facility. Pilots: There are more than 25 factory-trained pilots at Liberty with an average of 10 years of experience each. Plus, many of them are former US Military or police officers. Awards: Liberty boasts an award-winning staff, and it's a regular recipient of the Annual Safety Award from the Helicopter Association International. The company has also earned the Five Star Diamond award multiple times. Press: Featured on season 11 of The Bachelorette.

  • Manhattan Helicopters
    Manhattan Helicopters' flight crew zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.
