The Big Apple Helicopter Tour in New York

<p>The Big Apple Helicopter Tour in New York</p>

See why New York is called the "Big Apple". This very popular 12 to 15 minute tour provides awe-inspiring views of the Big Apple's most iconic landmarks.

As you soar above the famous Hudson River you will fly right by the magnificent Statue of Liberty in all of her glory. You will view Governors and Ellis Island, as well as Manhattan's Financial District and the new One World Trade Center. As you cruise past the cavernous landscape of the NYC skyline, including the Empire State Building, Chrysler, Woolworth and MetLife buildings, you'll get so close you can almost touch them.

Other sights include the USS Intrepid, Governors and Ellis islands before heading back to the heliport.

Please Note: Upon arrival at the heliport, all passengers must pay per-person Security and Facility fees totaling $40.00 each. These fees are required and NOT included in your ticket price. Fees subject to change.

The helicopters used are primarily American Eurocopter products. The state-of-the-art Single and Twin Engine Jet Helicopters are climate controlled, providing heat and air conditioning, along with an expanded cabin, comfortably seating up to seven. Those aboard enjoy spectacular sights and photo opportunities unique to helicopter sightseeing.

Since their introduction in 1978, the AS350 has become the aircraft of choice for the single-engine operator because of its capability to travel farther and faster than any comparable ship in its class. The AS350 also has the largest cabin volume of any production single-engine helicopter. With its proven endurance, long range performance, and features, such as forward-facing seats, extensive window area and generous cargo storage, the AS350 is ideal for sightseeing.
