Things to know before booking a New York helicopter tour 

Is it going to be your first time on a helicopter? Don’t fret! We’ve got you covered. Just go through this list of things to keep in mind before your first helicopter tour in the New York skies.

  • Take a minute to consider how long you’d like to spend in the sky. From 15 minute-rides to 30 minutes of in air time, we’ve got options for everyone depending on your budget and time constraints.
  • Would you like to go on a night ride or a day-time ride? While day tours give you unobstructed views of New York’s iconic landmarks, the night tour gives you the opportunity to see the city sparkle in all its glory.
  • Since it is bound to be windy up in the sky on your helicopter ride, we suggest you wear a jacket and carry a hair tie or cap to enjoy the tour comfortably. Don’t forget your sunglasses if you’re going on a day tour!
  • Keep in mind that the weight limit for the tour is 275 lbs per passenger. Since each tour accommodates 6 passengers per flight within the mentioned weight limit, you might have to wait for the next tour for safety reasons if you are above the weight limit. Because the number of passengers per trip will be altered depending on the total weight of all members flying, you might be required to pay an additional fee if you are above 275 lbs.
  • Children under 2 don’t require tickets, but they must sit on the lap of an adult. Adults need to make sure you keep your seatbelts on at all times. ​​In some tours, your parent or guardian must be present to sign a consent form if you are under 18.
  • While pregnant women are allowed to fly, check with your healthcare-providers before booking your tickets to ensure a safe helicopter tour.
  • There will be a security screening before the flight. So head over to the heliport at least 30 minutes before departure for a hassle-free experience. Last-minute arrivals may not be allowed to fly.
  • Travel light and carry only necessary items when you go on the tour. Depending on the total weight of all passengers and available space, you may be asked to check in your hand luggage.
  • The helicopter tour is weather-sensitive. In case of bad weather conditions, the flight may be rescheduled or canceled without notice to ensure the safety of all guests. Rides may also be canceled or rescheduled during games at Yankee Stadium, or during Presidential visits.
  • A mandatory heliport fee is applicable for each individual. You can check if this fee is included in the price of your ticket while booking.
