Second, a private helicopter charter gives you the flexibility to come and go as you please. If you want to stay for a week or just a weekend, you can make the trip work for your schedule.

Third, chartering a private helicopter is an experience you’ll never forget. Soaring over the ocean and getting a bird’s eye view of the island is an unforgettable way to travel.

Nantucket is a beautiful island located off the coast of Massachusetts. Known for its stunning beaches, charming shops, lively arts scene, and delicious seafood Nantucket has plenty to offer for a week’s vacation or a long weekend. But for all its charm, Nantucket can be very difficult to get to when traveling by ferry or commercial flight. Preserve your time and experience more of what Nantucket has to offer with a private helicopter charter from HeliFlite.

Traveling from metro New York to Nantucket can be exhausting and very frustrating. You could take a ferry from Cape Cod or catch a commercial flight, but in both cases, you will be waiting for hours at the airport or aboard the ferry. Once you arrive, you’ll have to fight the crowd off the plane or ship and through the airport or ferry terminal before getting to enjoy the island. Let HeliFlite alleviate the frustration of travel planning.

If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable summer vacation, chartering a private helicopter to experience Nantucket is the way to go. You’ll avoid the crowds, enjoy flexibility and convenience, and experience the thrill of flying in helicopter. Contact us when you’re ready to book your charter.
