The ultimate photo experience

Professional aerial photography services accessible to everyone.

FlyNYON was founded by aviation experts with a combined 101 years of flight experience in the helicopter industry.

We make professional aerial photography services accessible to everyone by providing a crowdsourced aerial experience. Whether you want to snap a signature shoe selfie on your iPhone, or you want to capture incredible aerial content for your portfolio: we’ve got a variety of options for you.

No two flights are the same.

Variables in time of day, seasons, weather, and a custom flight plan have photographers flying with us time and time again. Each photo flight is tailored to what you would like to see. Want to go high or low? Want to focus on a specific building or landmark? Take your photography to new heights with FlyNYON.

Your only worry should be what shot to capture next.

We take the thrill of shooting images from an open door helicopter, and makes it accessible by offering crowdsourced seats, without compromising on safety. Our New York City flights are conducted in rigorously maintained jet-engine helicopters featuring redundancies in seat belts, harnesses, floatation devices, and/or dual engines. All flights are piloted by experienced crew with thousands of hours logged. The doors are taken off and you along with your photo equipment are securely tethered in for the ride. We combined this knowledge of aviation with our passion for photography.

Sky’s not the limit; it’s our office.

We’ve flown thousands of passengers since we’ve opened our doors in 2012, and now offer photo flights in NYC, Las Vegas, Miami, Los Angeles & San Francisco.
