  • Escape the city and soak in the natural beauty of Westchester and the Hudson Valley on this private Scenic Hudson Valley Helicopter Tour.

    Your tour will begin at the Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY where you will meet your FAA-Certified Pilot and guide. Before lift-off, your pilot will give you and your group a 15-minute ground safety briefing so everyone is safe and familiar with all of the protocols. Depending on the group size, you will load into either a 6-passenger turbine chopper or a smaller Robinson R-44 helicopter, both among the safest and most popular helicopters in existence. From there, you are ready to embark on your journey!

    Flying high above the Hudson Valley, some memorable sights on the 30-minute flight may include (and are subject to change):

    • Incomparable views of the Hudson River
    • Tappan Zee Bridge
    • Indian Point
    • Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park
    • West Point
    • Kykuit - The Rockefeller Estate
    For a real treat, book your tour during peak foliage season and see how the landscape transforms into a sea of reds, oranges and yellows!

    Whether you are a Manhattanite looking to broaden your horizons or a visitor looking for more than just the typical big city views, this private Hudson Valley Helicopter Tour is the answer for you!
