For our last hooray in NYC the girls and I decided to take a helicopter ride over NYC. During Black Friday FlyNyon was having a crazy deal with rides up to 40% off. As soon as I saw it pop up on Facebook, I sent it straight to Ashley, Priscilla and Amanda. With my last day in New York approaching I figured a NYC Helicopter Ride with FlyNYON would be a good end to my chapter in NYC. It ended up being the perfect way to kiss New York goodbye.

To start off we headed to NJ where our flight would be taking off. As soon as I arrived at the FlyNYON office I was impressed. Their offices were industrial chic. We got to look over some waivers and then had all non essential items stored away for us. Phones and cameras were attached to holsters and then connected to us for our flight.
This insured everything stayed in place for the flight.
After a safety lesson we went off to meet with our pilot and discuss more safety. I cannot stress enough how calm and reassuring the whole crew was from the check in to the flight. They answered any and all of our questions. They were damn nice. Our pilot made sure we were all comfortable, especially those of us with fear of flying.
Everything from take off to landing went smoothly. We focused our time on downtown Manhattan. The view was simply unreal. I thought seeing the city from above would make it seem smaller. Instead it amplified how impressive the skyline is.
It was the perfect goodbye to my city.
I wanna acknowledging the elephant in the room. A week before we our ride, a Helicopter made a crash landing into the hudson river killing all but the pilot. This is important to point out because one I am scared of flying. Two because the crew at FlyNYON have taken many steps to ensure everyones is safe. While I am scared of flying I also know that freak accidents do occur. Everyone at FlyNYON was professional and made us feel very comfortable. We are planning on doing another ride once we are back in the USA.
I would highly recommend a NYC Helicopter Ride with FlyNYON
The helicopter ride was the perfect way to close this chapter on New York. Beyond stunning it was so inspiring to see NYC a place I have called home from above. For visitors and New Yorkers, a NYC Helicopter Ride with FlyNYON is a bucket list item worth every penny.
