    You just have not seen the world we live in until you have seen it from a helicopter. If it is to see the fall colors, the long island sound or even NYC by helicopter then we can help. Please have a look at some of the photographs taken by us! If it’s just something you always wanted to do why not take just yourself or a group of friends for an aerial tour? We recommend a trip along the southern CT shoreline. Some of the sights to be seen along the long island sound are the Thimble Islands, Yale University in New Haven, the submarine base at Groton, New London and many others. For a real treat NOTHING compares to the NYC skyline. Take a flight along the long island sound, down the Hudson River past the George Washington Bridge, past the Empire State Building, overhead Central Park and around Ellis Island and Lady Liberty herself. We promise there are few trips to match this one. You can pay hundreds of dollars for a few minute flight from NYC which is over before you know it or you can let us take you on a 1hr 45 minute adventure. The cost for 4 people is $450 per person. We’ll even stop for coffee on the way back at one of a number of helicopter friendly hotels.
