Give Mom the Gift of a Helicopter Ride for Mother’s Day

Looking for something special to give your Mom, wife, or grandmother but still stumped on authentic ideas? A luxurious helicopter tour over New York City is your answer!

Helicopter tour companies charge as low as $145 per seat, which may seem steep until you hear what they will get to see. Passengers are seated in a luxurious helicopter next to their loved ones with noise-cancelling aviation headsets so you can communicate your excitement to one another. Tours start near the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River then head south towards Governor’s Island and the Verrazano Bridge. Mom will be excited to see the Statue of Liberty up close as she takes pictures of the national monument. The helicopter then heads north past Ellis Island and towards the Freedom Tower for a breathtaking view of America’s tallest skyscraper. Continuing north up the Hudson, Mom will see ships, sailboats, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, the USS Intrepid, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, and much more Manhattan has to offer. She will see Grant’s Tomb and the fabled George Washington Bridge. If you decide to extend your tour, Mom will cross over the GWB and take in the Palisades Cliffs and Yankee Stadium. She will see the Upper side of Manhattan including the Upper West Side, Harlem, the Bronx, and White Plains. As the helicopter turns back south to go back down the Hudson River, Mom will view Weehawken, Hoboken, and Jersey City, New Jersey. Exchange Place, Liberty Park, MetLife Stadium, and the Colgate Clock are sure to impress. She will see all of New York City’s wonders again for the second time on her left-hand side. The flight crew will fly you and your family safely back to the Downtown Manhattan Heliport at Pier 6, and we promise smiles the whole way. Mom will be gleaming from ear-to-ear that you thought of her for this special experience.
