Private Helicopter Travel for First Time Fliers

June 8, 2022

Flying thousands of feet in the air is an exhilarating experience for all, especially first-time fliers. Add in a stunning aerial view of the land below and the freedom to travel to where you need to be on your own schedule, a helicopter becomes the ideal way to travel. If you are tired of bumper-to-bumper traffic, cramped ride-sharing, or the delays of commercial airlines, it might be time to try private helicopter travel with HeliFlite.

We understand that while gearing up for your first helicopter flight can be exciting, you might have some questions. At HeliFlite, we are here for you every step of the way. Our flight coordinators will assist with the closest landing location to your final destination, arrange ground transportation, or handle special pet arrangements.

✓ Intro program for private helicopter travel

With HeliFlite, you can book a single private charter for you and up to 8 other passengers. We can depart from three of the most popular helipads in New York City and take you to your destination on your schedule. You can avoid the crowds of rideshare and the frustrations of traffic for as little as $2,300 plus taxes and fees from NYC to the local airports.

Once you’re hooked, our Introductory HeliCard Program will provide new clients with preferred pricing and guaranteed availability for your private helicopter travel. 

Whether you’re a regular commuter or an occasional flier, we have a program to suit you.
