Awesome is definitely the first word that comes to mind when I describe the helicopter flight I took over, literally over New York City. This 45 minute experience was definitely one of a kind. New York City skyline is fascinating. How much more so, when viewing it from above. We even got to see the tail end of sunset on the first part of our trip (There is no extra charge for sunset flights).
The tour leaves from the Westchester County Airport. There is no city traffic and the pace is extremely relaxed.
Safety is top priority with Wing Air. Our pilot Brian was extremely professional and friendly, with his 40 years of experience piloting both helicopters and airplanes, we felt safe in his chopper. His narrations and explanations made the trip all the more fascinating.
This trip is by no means an inexpensive one, but given the high cost of operation Wing Air tours are competitively priced for what you receive. You definitely get a lot for you money.
Wing Air offers tours every day including Sundays, weather permitting. They don’t only offer NYC tours. They offer New England Tours, charter services. All the options are listed on their website.
Wing Air Helicopters was the first helicopter charter company to be based out of Westchester Airport. The company was started by Javier Diaz in 2002. As an experience pilot, he left his job as an investment banker to share his passion for airborne travel. He set the trend of quality and extremely enjoyable helicopter rides which begin at an excellent location taking you on a flight to remember!
