These guys are an amazing outfit. For the money and experience that you get, there can't be a better value in NYC if you're looking for a helicopter tour. Very nice people. Knowledgable pilot. Next time we're back in the city, we're doing an NYC helicopter tour and are giving these guys a call for sure!

Big Apple Helicopter Tours of NYC

Take a helicopter tour in New York!

A helicopter tour of the city is just fabulous.  This is a great idea for your next trip to New York City!

Why is it crucial for you to fly in a helicopter while in New York?

YES, we insist, this is a MUST!

No joke... a trip in the sky above Manhattan will allow you to enjoy an incredible and magnificent view of the greatest city in the world. One piece of advice: If you have the budget, just do it!  This is a unique experience that you will never forget!

Which helicopter tour company should you choose?

Well, we're kind of biased, so we are going to say Big Apple Helicopter Tours!  You want an experience that will last a lifetime?  Don't go with one of those fly-by-night companies. 

When is the best time of the day to enjoy the helicopter tour?

A good tip is to try to book according to your schedule but unfortunately it’s not always possible.

However, the best tip is to book a flight in the afternoon around 2 or 3 pm to avoid the front sun exposure especially when taking pictures of New York or the Statue of Liberty.

What if it rains the day of your New York helicopter tour?

What you need to know once you’ve booked your New York City helicopter tour is that most companies will give you a day of flight but without a specific time.

Therefore, 2 days before the flight, you should give us a call in order to get a scheduled appointment for your NYC flight but most importantly, so we can tell you if the weather is ideal or not.

If the forecast announces “sunny” weather for your helicopter tour then you’re good to go.

If the forecast predicts “average” weather then you should call 24 hours prior.

And if “rain “is expected, we might need to reschedule a new appointment the following day or a few days later depending on availability. Usually, there’s always a way to make it work.
