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!

Upon arrival I noticed the staff was helpful and professional. The training session was conducted with patience and all questions were answered in detail. Each step in the process of getting suited up and boarded was reviewed in detail. I have been on a number of helicopters but this flight was the winner in so many way. The excitement of hanging outside was a real thrill. Our pilot, Dave, was very professional and you could tell our safety was of utmost importance. I highly recommend a flight with FlyNYON.
