This 15-minute helicopter ride over the big apple is an exhilarating once-in-a-lifetime sightseeing and photo opportunity. After watching a brief safety video, crew members will help passengers with disabilities get on and off board through manual transfers. They will fly over Central Park, the Hudson River, the New York Harbor and re-discover the city’s world-famous skyline. They will see the Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler, the Met Life buildings, and the World Financial Center from an entirely new perspective. This tour is also a learning opportunity, as their guide will explain the city’s rich history and world-famous landmarks. The tour includes breathtaking views of the iconic Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village, and the historic Brooklyn Bridge. Their helicopter will then take them further North, where they will see the George Washington Bridge, the New Jersey Palisades, Columbia University, and on non-game days, the state-of-the-art Yankee Stadium. The helicopter will also explore New York’s southernmost border, and pass over the longest suspension bridge in the United States: the Verrazano.
