Classic (adj) – judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.What a great way to describe our all encompassing city of New York.

Picture this. Walk into the hangar to be greeted by our customer experience team. Don’t worry. We won’t judge if you can’t help but stare in awe at our amazing fleet of helicopters.

You’re then taken to the pre-flight area to meet your pilot and fellow flyers. Here you’ll make a flight plan to make sure we hit all those bucket list #goals, creating a truly unique experience every single time.

Personalize your flight with either: uptown, midtown, downtown and/or everything in between. The sky’s the limit!

After suiting up, our team will take you out to the helipad…and the real fun begins.

Because our heliport is just 2 minutes from the city, you’ll get amazing Manhattan skyline views seconds after takeoff. And it’s just up from there.

The Classic is our Crown Jewel. And like any proud parent, we love showing it off. Let us know if you want to make a second pass and prepare for multiple angles, increased precision, and unique shots!

You’ll be riding an Airbus AS350B3 Helicopter known as the A-Star:

  • Cruise Speed 60 knots (while in doors off operation);
  • TurboMeca Engines (the most reliable in the industry);
  • State-of-the-Art tiered drop airframe design

Your Safety is Important to Us!

Using our proprietary 8 Point Safety Harness System (SHS), we go beyond industry safety standards for each person on each flight. Our customer experience professionals, outfit you with safety equipment according to our SHS guidelines. A final review is then performed by the Pilot in Command, assuring your personal safety and the safety of your equipment.

One Step Further

We take your experience further than anyone else in the industry. Which means taking your safety to a whole new level as well. That’s why we’ve established Over The City Procedures (OTCP) to ensure the safety of both passengers onboard our flights and individuals below.

Breathtaking! This sky adventure took "touring" to a whole new level. Soaring over NYC adds to the grandeur of the city! The open door ride coupled with the spectacular views of the city is a bucket list item for sure! I went late in the day- next time will try the evening ride to see the lights of the city that never sleeps! Staff was professional and I felt very secure with all aspects of this adventure! Thank you FlyNYON!

Amazing experience! Everyone at FlyNYON in NYC was incredibly professional, helpful, and fun! My flight had to be slightly rescheduled to earlier in the day and the staff reached out to me via text and email, and i thought that was great! They cared enough about my time with them to make sure they got in touch with me. Some of the friendliest and coolest people from the moment I arrived until I left. And even afterwards, they have been in touch via email thanking me and wanting to see pictures. You really feel appreciated and can tell that they want you to have the safest and most memorable time in the air possible. Highly recommend this experience to anyone with an adventurous side visiting NYC

FlyNYON takes professional aerial photography and takes to new heights by making it accessible to anyone with a passion for photography and seeing the city in a new way. As a local professional photographer I've used them for work, and I've gifted it to my dad who's just an enthusiast. Whether you're a pro, or shoot with your iPhone, there's no better way to see the city than with a doors off helicopter.

Great experience and everyone was super helpful! Very unique opportunity to see NYC from above, I would definitely recommend. It can be a little tricky to find to make sure to leave ample time before your takeoff

This was the coolest experience EVER! The staff was amazing to work with from start to finish, and I seriously cannot wait to fly with them again - this time in a different city! I never felt unsafe, in large because they took the proper precautions on all accounts, made sure we watched a safety video, and explained everything again once we were inside the helicopter. The view over the city was unbeatable. You absolutely MUST do this!
