There is a holiday vibe on Marathon Sunday as New Yorkers take to the street to cheer on the thousands of runners who embark upon the exciting 26-mile jaunt of the five boroughs. And, while there are many popular corners and cheer zones to experience the adrenaline rush, FlyNYON just scored you the best seat in the city.

This thirty-minute Marathon Focus Flight will take you 3,000 feet above the crowds for amazing views of midtown Manhattan including Central Park where the runners cross the finish line. The flight takes off from the NYON Terminal in nearby Kearny, NJ where you will meet your dedicated pilot that will have you hovering over Manhattan in minutes to deliver a unique doors-off, unobstructed view. Amazing photo ops of iconic landmarks like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building will be waiting for you. And, then get ready to capture the ultimate #shoeselfie as your own running sneakers float above the final lap of the Marathon course. It’s a new kind of running high only available this Sunday from FlyNYON

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!

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!

An incredible experience like no other we have done on holiday. Safety and fun were top of the priority list for the team at FlyNYON so we were happy all round. We were asked exactly what we wanted to see during our flight (30 minutes) so a custom experience worth every penny. Can't wait to do it again in NY and/or in another city!

This was absolutely one of the best experiences. I gave this as a gift for my boyfriend's birthday. He was so surprised when we got there and saw what we were doing. Everything was amazing from booking to flight. The whole staff was incredible. They helped change my flight since it was suppose to storm the original day I was going to go, and once we got there everyone was so nice. The pilot was amazing and let us get the best shot. I would recommend FlyNYON to everyone and anyone who would listen. 100% something I recommend and absolutely will be doing again!

There are many tourist observation decks in NYC, but none comparable like if you fly with FlyNYON. It is truly the best experience you will ever have. You can see all Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty from a different point of view. And all FlyNYON team at NJ headquarters are simply the best! They make you feel comfortable at all times! Thank you so much for making possible one of the best experience in my life!
