Covid Safety not followed
Aman
, Oct 2020
Hated the entire experience. They had too many people on one flight. They separated me from my boyfriend!!!! It was supposed to be something romantic and they seriously made us sit away from each other. Worst experience ever. Customer service was also terrible! Please beware before booking with them. Total waste of my money.

Hi Aman, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience flying with us. Our tours are currently flown as shared flights, the seating in the helicopter is arranged by the weights of all passengers as we need to safely balance the helicopter. Our helicopters have 1 seat next to the pilot, which is generally considered the best seat. If we receive a request for a couple not to be split up during a flight our team will always do their best to make sure that group is seated in the cabin if it is safe to do so. We have a a Covid-19 health and safety plan in place involving all passengers requiring masks, our headset microphones are pulled up to discourage talking in the helicopter and there is regular sanitation of all high touch points. Our safety plan is sent to all passengers before the flight to advise them that the helicopter is shared and to keep everyone informed about what we are doing. We work hard to be as transparent as possible to ensure that there are no surprises at check-in. If passengers do not feel comfortable sharing with other people we do offer private tours.

Well, at the begining we felt a bit nervous; no doubt about the security protocols before taking the helicopter. We both liked the experience and would repeat it, but as a private tour for the Two.

Thank you for sharing us as a must do in New York City! We are working hard to ensure the safety of our passengers during shared flights and trying to make our passengers feel as comfortable as possible. We understand sharing a space with other passengers isn't for everyone at the moment. We look forward to seeing you again on a private tour next time!

Everyone was professional and extremely nice. Our pilot was so sweet. It was a pleasure having him. The views were magical! It’s so much better seeing the city from above.

Wonderful experience. 20 min ride from the downtown to uptown Manhattan. Totally worth it! A shared ride will be better than a private ride. If you are going with a couple, the other passengers will help you to take pictures of you guys and you do the same for them

During the booking stage I was not so sure if I had made the right choice helicopter flight. There are many offers, would this be the right one?? But let me reassure you: from welcoming us, giving safety instruction to the flight itself, all was organized in a personal and very efficient way. The 18 to 20 minute fight we booked was worth every dollar. Of course we were extremely lucky with the weather. The pilot gave us some useful information about all the mayor sights down below. From every seat we had a excellent view. I can recommend this tour.

This was the most amazing thing we’ve ever had done. The staff was great! Friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing I think I was bummed out about is the photo before we got on to the helicopter. That is something I really wanted to buy after but they only took one picture and my hair was flying all around. I think that they need to have one on stand by for prior to flight or don’t take it at all.
