How Early Should You Book a Helicopter Tour?

February 25, 2016

helicopter ride nyA helicopter tour will allow you to experience many popular New York City landmarks from a unique vantage point. By flying over the City in a helicopter, you can avoid the frustration of dealing with the traffic and congestion below and make the most of your sightseeing trip.

Helicopter Flight Services offers several tour packages that will take you by many of New York’s most iconic landmarks. You can soar above the Brooklyn, George Washington, and Verrazano Bridges; the Empire State Building; the Statue of Liberty: the Chrysler Building; Ground Zero; Yankee Stadium (on non-game days); Central Park; and many other sites. Call to ask about our tour packages.

Before you book your tour, you should consider how long you and your guests are comfortable being in the air. Our tours range from 12 to 30 minutes. The length of your tour will influence the price.

Another important factor is the number of people who will be accompanying you on your tour. The number in your group will determine the size and model of helicopter that will be used for your tour.

Reservations are not required but are highly recommended, especially for large groups. The sooner you make your reservation, the better the likelihood that you will be able to get the package and helicopter you desire on the day and time of your choice.

If you arrive at the heliport and have not made a reservation, you may have to wait a long time for available space on one of our tour helicopters. There is also a $5.00 per person “walk-in” fee.

If your tour is canceled due to dense fog, low clouds, poor visibility, lightning, extremely gusty winds, or heavy rain or snow, you can receive a full refund or reschedule your flight for another day at no additional cost. If you need to cancel your tour, simply call by 8:00 a.m. on the day of your flight, and you can reschedule your tour or receive a full refund.
