Garden State Helicopter Tour & Photo Flight Details

New York City Tour

The NYC Tour departs Lincoln Park airport and flies over MetLife Stadium (home of the Giants and Jets) on its way into NYC. We enter the Hudson River corridor south of the George Washington Bridge and head south along the NJ coastline, providing views of Hoboken, Colgate Clock, downtown Jersey City and Ellis Island. We then loop the Statue of Liberty and fly northbound up the Hudson seeing downtown NYC including Freedom Tower, Battery Park, 9/11 Memorial, Chelsea Piers and the Intrepid before heading back to Lincoln Park.

Highlands Tour

The Highlands Tour provides stunning aerial views of the mountains and lakes of the NJ Highlands as well as Montclair University, Great Falls of Paterson, Meadowlands sports complex and Montclair Country Club. Passengers will see the NYC skyline, but the tour does not reach Manhattan.

Westchester Helicopter Tours

We will operate our New York City tours out of the Westchester County Airport on a limited basis, with limited availability. Please contact us for details.

Aerial Photography

When you are looking for an aerial photography platform, you have many possible vendors to choose from, but you rarely have the opportunity to work with professional photographers as a pilot. An educated professional photographer understands your language, and knows what shot you are trying to get. Sometimes getting the shot you need from a helicopter is difficult, but having a pilot that speaks your language can make everything that much more seamless. We fly in New York City every day, and all of our photo flights are custom tailored to the photographers needs.  Please contact us for details.
