booking a helicopter nyIf you are planning to take a helicopter tour or charter, you probably have questions. Here is some of the important information you need to know.
What areas does Helicopter Flight Services serve? We offer tours of the New York City area and transfers to all of the airports in the area. We also offer charters to the Hamptons, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Westchester, Teterboro, and Washington, DC.
Will the helicopter fly over New York City? We do not fly our helicopter tours over midtown Manhattan because of a “fly neighborly” agreement with the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Some of our tours fly over the Bronx and Yankee Stadium if LaGuardia Airport traffic permits.
Do I need a reservation? Reservations are not required but are recommended. If you don’t have a reservation, you might need to wait a long time for your flight.
Will you cancel the flight in bad weather? We might cancel your helicopter tour or charter if there is dense fog, low clouds, poor visibility, lightning, strong winds, or heavy rain or snow. You will be able to reschedule your flight or get a full refund.
Can I cancel my flight? If you need to cancel your helicopter tour or charter, call by 8:00 a.m. on the day of your flight. There is no charge for cancellations, and you can get a full refund if you pre-paid.
How should I dress for my helicopter flight? Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, a coat and gloves in the winter, and comfortable, secure shoes. Do not wear a hat, visor, scarf, bandana, sandals, or flip flops. Do not bring along a large bag or purse.
