    On the advice of a friend, we took a helicopter tour around Manhattan, from the Liberty Helicopter's helipad pier in the East River, near the Staten Island Ferry dock on lower Manhattan (South Ferry subway station on the 1 train). Our pilot (Captain Kirk, and no I'm not kidding) was extremely polite and very professional. He ensured all passengers were safely buckled in, and briefed us on what we could expect, before actually moving. His care and concern was evident and genuine (he cannot be a native New Yorker). He let us know that we would...Read More

    A little pricey but well worth it. We took the 15 minute tour but it felt much longer. There were 6 people in the helicopter, 4 in the back and 2 in the front. Front seats were excellent and I definitly would not have been happy in the back middle. We had an 11:45 appointment but arrived early around 11 and was in the air around 11:30. Definitly reccomend to everyone as it will give a view of NYC and NJ you can only get from a helicopter. Pilot/Crew/Staff were all professional and kind.

    My name is Dilan Martin and I'm from England. I had a really good experience at Liberty. I am kind of suprised at some of the negative feedback because my experience was nothing but positive. When we arrived we stepped into the line and checked in. Once we checked in, it took maybe 10min before they called us up to go. We watch a security video and boarded the helicopter. They take pictures of you and your party before you board in front of the helicopter. Once the tour started it was very exciting. I took the tour that was called the Big Apple...Read More

    Liberty Helicopters is a GREAT company! Their pilots are professional and give the custom a good ride to see the sites. You can always find something wrong with a person or company, but the comments I have read here seem malicious and petty. The management at Liberty is focused on safety, employs qualified crewmembers, and provides the PROFESSIONAL oversight necessary to ensure their operations are above the standard! It is sorrowful that someone would slam this company as I have read here. I am former pilot of Liberty and a current Gulfstream IV...Read More

Our pilot (Captain Kirk, and no I'm not kidding) was extremely polite and very professional. He ensured all passengers were safely buckled in, and briefed us on what we could expect, before actually moving. His care and concern was evident and genuine (he cannot be a native New Yorker). He let us know that we would lift off and the back up over the East River just a bit, before banking and flying away for our tour--good info to know, as I wasn't expecting a back-and-go departure. The tour took us out around Governor's Island, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, up the Hudson River and across the George Washington Bridge, and then back down the Hudson along the NJ Palisades. I’ll admit I was a little nervous looking down at the helipad from altitude, but Capt. Kirk deftly maneuvered the helicopter down and around the pier and set the aircraft down so gently, I didn’t realize that we had actually touched down. He was a great pilot and very knowledgeable of the area and pointed out local landmarks and famous items around us. If you’re in NY City, make it a point to find time to fly around Manhattan in a helicopter, and if he’s not on the bridge of the Enterprise, ask to fly with Capt. Kirk.

I took the tour that was called the Big Apple tour, with that tour it is 15min and to be quite honest it felt a lil longer. More like 17-18..the pilot was very friendly, he gave us history and told us exactly what were looking at. We captured some really cool pics of the statue of liberty. We came pretty close to it. Of course we saw the city and the famous buildings. My favorite part of the tour was when it was time to head back to the heliport, we had to make a U-turn and the helicopter tilts to the side as it turns..It really was fun and exciting.

It is sorrowful that someone would slam this company as I have read here. I am former pilot of Liberty and a current Gulfstream IV and V Captain. With confidence I say: Liberty Helicopters is a good company that I personally would not be afraid to have anyone of their pilots transport either a member of my immediate family or a valued client of my current aircraft assignment.
