But before we delve into what is in store for the remaining Focus Flights of 2017, let’s take a look at some blasts from the past, FlyNyon style!
Earlier this Year:
Sunrise Focus Flight; March 25th
This one was for the early birds! There is nothing like the beauty of the sun rising over the Big Apple. This year’s flight was simply stupendous, with the palette of warm hues softly hugging the tallest of skyscrapers as fliers hurriedly captured what they could. The result? One-of-a-kind shots.
Light it Up RED; May 21st
RED is a movement that is making strides toward raising awareness of AIDS/HIV. This year, they really went all out, illuminating the city's most monumental buildings in red.
Fleet Week; May 24th
Our hats go off to all the men and women who valiantly serve in the armed forces. Fleet week is a nationwide homage to them and to their service. Fliers got to see our nation's sevicemen and women from the air, a real treat.
Coney Island; June 24th
Sweet ol’ Coney Island, one of America's most iconic amusement parks. Fliers got up close and personal with classic rollar coasters and screaming joyriders. You just had to be there.
July 4th Fireworks; July 4th
The quintessential American holiday, and for good reason. Hordes of fliers showed up to tour the skies and be hypnotized by the fireworks display. Don’t miss out on next year’s!
High Altitude Day & Night; August 26th & 27th
This one is for the thrill seekers out there! We rose high above what we normally would, so high that the stars might have well been an arm’s reach away. With New York below their feet and a camera in their hands, fliers walked away having fallen in love with the Big Apple all over again.
Tribute in Light; September 11th
A homage to the Twin Towers, the Tribute in Light consists of 88 spotlights shining in unity against the night sky. This year, fliers got to meet the columns high in the air, a bewitching sight. The contrast of the lights against the night sky for an unforgettable experience.
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; November 23rd A favorite of families everywhere, this beloved tradition fills the air with colossal balloons and the streets with colorful parade floats. Avoid the crowdedness below and take to the skies with FlyNYON. This event is sure to fill every single passenger’s heart with childlike glee.
Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting; November 29th If you thought the Lighting was spectacular at ground level, then you’ve seen nothing yet! Soar above the landscape and take amazing aerial shots of this signature staple, and admire the city and all its vibrant lights, all the while enjoying the festivities!
Supermoon; December 3rd A natural phenomenon that occurs about once a year, the Supermoon is truly a sight to see; see it as it should be seen with FlyNYON. With us, you’ll get so close you can almost grasp the moon with your hands. See for yourself why natural wonders are the best wonders of them all.
New Year’s Eve; December 31st Celebrate New Year’s Eve all the way up, flying across New York in style. Lovers of fireworks, this Focus Flight is for you! Whether embarking by yourself, or with loved ones, there is truly no better way to welcome the New Year.
