FAQ’s New York


• What is FlyNYON?

The Ultimate Aerial Photo Experience. Fly like the pros and harness into our helicopter with open doors, giving you visual access to the world below. Use your creative eye to capture the images that inspire you and challenge your photographic skills. Don’t be fooled, it is not as easy as it looks, but it sure is fun and will encourage you to come back for more.

With our crowd sourced model, you’re able to book a single seat or fly with your friends/other passengers. We take up to 5 passengers per helicopter.

• What route do these flights take?

Where do YOU want to go? We tailor the flight to the sites and views you and your copter-mates want to see. We do not have set routes. You’ll be able to discuss your image requests with the pilot during your safety briefing. The NYC Experience is focused on lower Manhattan and the harbor area. With double the time in the air, The NYC Classic can cover most of NYC’s iconic landmarks in one flight, from the Statue up to Central Park. The Manhattan Premium departs from the Blade Lounge East at E34TH Street and has immediate views of the Chrysler and Empire State Building. This 15 minute flight allows enough time to focus on either downtown or uptown views.

• What if my flight does not meet its minimum required to fly?

If your flight does not meet the minimum number of passengers required to fly, we may have to adjust your departure time to combine you with other passengers. We’ll always do everything we can to accommodate your original reservation.

• When is the best time to fly?

For first time aerial photographers, we recommend a flight midday or morning where there is plenty of light to capture the iconic sights from the air. For the more experienced shooter who is looking for a bit of a challenge, a flight at sunset or later is a great option.
