What is the best time to fly?

Any time of day is good to fly depending on the weather. We usually recommend booking around your schedule because the weather is unpredictable. Keep in mind that during the winter months the sun sets earlier and can affect the tour.

Is there a time of day my flight won’t be crowded?

The flights are almost always fully booked. The only way to guarantee a private tour is to reserve all 6 seats in the helicopter.

What happens if the weather is bad?

If there is light rain that doesn’t affect visibility, then Heli NY may still be able to fly. In the case of bad rain or fog they may need to cancel flights. Heli NY will do their best to notify you as soon as they know your flight will be canceled; the weather in New York can change quickly so this may be last minute. They will always try to reschedule your flight.

How bad does the weather have to be before flights are canceled?

Flights may be canceled in dense fog, low clouds, poor visibility, lightning, extremely gusty winds and heavy rain or snow. The temperature outside has no effect on flight conditions as the helicopters are equipped with both heat and air conditioning.

Is there parking at the Heliport?

There is no parking at the heliport but there is a parking garage at the intersection of South Street & Whitehall Street, South St. & Old Slip Rd or at the South Street Seaport (Pier 17).

Can I pick my seat?

The final seating in the helicopter is determined by the weights of all passengers in the flight. You can request a seat but Heli NY is unable to guarantee your seat in advance.

What can I take in the helicopter?

Only cameras, cell phones and sunglasses may be taken on the helicopter. All bags, hats and scarves may be left in a locker available to you at no charge. For more information on what cannot be brought on board your flight please click here.
