The airport is a bit out of the way, but is easy to reach with a Lyft driver or a rental car. Unlike other providers, you do not pay any additional fees for this. The organization was great and the pilot was very nice. During the flight he tells a little something and flies to the points in such a way that everyone in the heli can enjoy the view and take photos. A total of six people fly in one heli. One sits next to the pilot, four each at the window and one in the middle. The crew decides who sits where, so that the weight is balanced.

Very nice experience with our 7 year old daughter and our friends. We were 6 on board. One of us climbs to the pilot's left. The instructions are simple. The facades of the helicopter are glazed, we could see very well. Only small problem: the place of support is not very well indicated. We had 2 kids 6 and 7 on board so they were talking into their headphones spontaneously which you can't help but they were so enthusiastic. As a result, we did not hear the pilot's explanations. Next time, we'll lower their microphone to them. LOL. Central park is not lit at night, so we couldn't see anything there.

It was a unique, breathtaking experience that you really should have done. We were a little early at Lindon Airport and got an early flight with no problems. The rule here is first come, first served. But you have to know beforehand: the airport is in New Jersey, so really a bit outside of Manhattan and it can be a little adventure to get there. Usually not possible without Lyft or Uber if you don't want to walk another 1 hour. If you are aware of this, nothing stands in the way of the whole thing ☺️
