VIP Transport from Manhattan to Westchester

With comfortable round-trip transportation included from Manhattan, your experience begins in style! Your private driver will pick you up from your New York accommodation, and from there it’s around a 45-minute drive north to Westchester County Airport.

You’ll be greeted by the team and your experienced private pilot, and soon you’ll be strapping in as the blades start to whirl on your two-passenger R44 helicopter.

Private Helicopter Tour over New York City!

After taking off, your pilot will head south and soon you’ll be entering NYC airspace with the iconic Manhattan skyline coming into view. Many of the sites you’ll see on the flight will be instantly recognizable, but you’ll never have seen them like this before. With only you and your loved one (or maybe your best friend!) on board, it’s an experience that feels incredibly special.

Your 45-minute helicopter tour of NYC will give you a spectacular birds-eye view of Midtown, Central Park, the Empire State Building, Harlem, Yankee Stadium, and the George Washington Bridge. Afterwards, you’ll continue south to the Financial District where you’ll see Freedom Tower, Battery Park, Ellis Island, and of course, the iconic Statue of Liberty!

It’s a New York experience that’ll take your breath away. After returning to Westchester, you can reminisce about the flight while your private driver takes you back to your hotel.
