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.

Walk into the terminal 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 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 NYC Classic is the only flight to get you over Central Park. 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

Safety has always been our top priority and we are honored to be recognized by the Eastern Region Helicopter Council (ERHC) for our unwavering commitment to Ground and Flight Safety.

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.

These guys offer flights in many of the major cities - I did mine in Vegas. As many others before me have mentioned, this is definitely a once in a lifetime experience and offers a unique perspective of the city that no other method provides. The FlyNYON team in Las Vegas were fantastic - super friendly, provided all the details of what we'd be experiencing before hand and (for an amateur photographer like myself) provided some great insight into lens selection and settings to get the best photos. The safety portion (harnessing, etc) was straightforward and quick and we were able to get on our way fairly quickly. They had 2-3 people working with 5 of us so it wasn't rushed and you could certainly tell that safety was their #1 concern. Time flies when you're having fun, and before I knew it, our flight was over, but I'm itching to go on another in the near future. I'd definitely fly with FlyNYON again if I have the opportunity. Great job guys - keep it up!

Absolutely the best experience. FlyNYON is a lifetime experience well worth it. First, staff were very chill and friendly. This place is legit. Safety is a priority and you'll notice how the staff care about your safety. I'm definitely recommending it if you want a different look at NYC.

This was one of the coolest things I have ever done aside from sky diving. It was an amazing birthday gift, I enjoyed every second. The 15 minutes were over within a blink of an eye -- so I recommend the 30 minute session. My pilot, Scott, was amazing! He was so fun and made the flight that much more enjoyable. Will be doing it again!

Unbelievable experience. From the booking process till walking out of their amazing facility the whole experience was easy, fun, and enjoyable. The staff was extremely attentive and easy to talk to from our host to our pilot. I would definitely recommend these guys and I don't think it's possible to have a better experience elsewhere. Worth every penny.

This is one of the most incredible things we’ve ever been lucky enough to do! Booking was so easy and as soon as we arrived we were treated like the FlyNYON team knew us! We were asked what sights we wanted to see and we saw them all. Everyone was super friendly and approachable. The views we saw were second to none and it truly is on a different level. Would definitely recommend FlyNYON and we will definitely fly with them in another city!
