Take to the skies on our most popular tour and experience the island of Manhattan in its full glory!
Our 17-20 minute Ultimate Tour is our most popular way to see all the sights that Manhattan has to offer. This tour will take you all the way from the Battery, passing face-to-face with the Statue of Liberty to the northern tip of Manhattan to fly above the George Washington Bridge! As you journey above the Hudson River you’ll pass all the icons of New York City – the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Yankee Stadium, and Central Park, as well as see the new kids on the block – Little Island, the Vessel, and Summit One Vanderbilt. Photo opportunities abound, including the all-important selfie with Lady Liberty!

Taking off from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, you will head straight to the Statue of Liberty. In addition to the One World Trade Center, you will have great views of Hudson Yards, where you can see the Edge, the Highline and the Vessel all at once. Ask our pilots to point out Billionaires Row – these tall, thin apartment buildings are where some of the wealthiest people in the world call home. This tour is the best way to appreciate the greenery of Central Park flying the whole length of this world-famous urban greenspace! Continuing to the northern tip of Manhattan you will fly over the George Washington Bridge, one of the worlds busiest bridges where you will see the natural beauty of the New Jersey’s Palisades Cliffs before returning south.
