A great entry-level doors-off helicopter flight for those who want to get a taste of aerial photography. This 16-minute helicopter flight offers signature downtown skyline views from a distinct vantage point that gets you up close and personal with Lady Liberty like no one else! Your experience starts at the NYON Terminal, an amazing 10,000 square foot space that features helicopter fuselage with an interactive floor, and relaxing lounge areas featuring spectacular flight footage from around the country and local food and drinks. Next, your group meets with your designated pilot to preview your flight path and hear expert tips and advice so that you have the best experience possible. Within just a short two minutes after takeoff, NYC will be in your sightline so have your camera ready to capture amazing downtown landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governor’s Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Battery Park, and NYC’s Financial District. New to the scene, but popular with locals and visitors alike, are the new Freedom Tower, the 9/11 Memorial, the nearby Oculus and the impressive “Jenga building” on Tribeca’s Leonard Street. It is an amazing and efficient way to capture the best of downtown. There is no doubt that you will want to do it all over again and book a longer flight next time!
I served as an Infantry Officer in the 101st Airborne. Following my service, I moved to Bend, Oregon to attend flight school where I worked diligently to become a Flight Instructor. I began my career as a Flight Instructor teaching on Long Island, NY. After a year of instructing, I was invited to join the FlyNYON team. I worked tirelessly to embed myself within the organization leading to me becoming the Check Airman where I ensure both new and old Pilots receive the highest levels of training. Our highly trained team will make sure every passenger feels secure and comfortable before, after and during their flight. Here at FlyNYON, we are the proud recipient of the Eastern Region Helicopter Council (ERHC) Safety Award for our unwavering commitment to ground safety & flight safety.
