What a wonderful experience- we managed to book this on the very morning of the tour, and would strongly recommend the 45min tour which was amazing as we saw all of NYC. The airstrip was a bit of a drive but lovely and quiet and well appointed and Anthony was a splendid pilot and host who ensured we had a smooth ride and entertained my little girls with Peppa Pig stories - he’s a great asset to Wings air and made the experience very memorable

Was originally supposed to take this tour on Sunday 17th September during the day but because United Nations delegates and Donald Trump was in town all flights were cancelled. Company emailed me on the Friday and we managed to get an alternative date for Friday 22nd in the evening. We were picked up spot on time at our hotel near Times Square by our driver Paul and journey took about 45 minutes to get to the airfield. Special mention to Paul who acted more as a tour guide rather than just a driver giving us loads of interesting facts along the way and on the return journey. The flight itself was spectacular and if anything was an even better experience with it being at night. The flight took us to the centre of New York and visited all the major attractions. It was great just how close we managed to get especially to the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. Overall experience was fantastic and all staff were really friendly and welcoming.

Wings Air,I have always found that people are quicker to complain then to compliment; in the service business especially, people do not feel the need to say something when their experience exceeds even their expectations, but are the first ones to come forward and seek retribution when something negative happens. I have always tried to avoid being this person, and it would take more negative things in an experience for me to complain, then it would take positive things in an experience for me to praise hard work. It is easy for me to compliment my experience with Wings when I took a helicopter right over New York City. Being a New Yorker, it was an amazing experience to get to see the city from a whole new perspective, in a way that not everyone will have the opportunity to in their lifetime.I had never been in a helicopter prior to this experience, so naturally, I was a little nervous. The professionalism of the pilot and staff was not only refreshing and comforting, but also very informative. Everyone involved was polite, efficient, knowledgable and friendly; I learned so much throughout the whole experience, and did not once feel uncomfortable or out of place. Everyone was more than prepared and happy to answer any of our questions, and I could tell right away that I was in the best of hands with a crew who knew what they were doing. Being in a helicopter can be risky by nature, and based on the price of the service, the luxurious nature of it, and the fact that some people may be nervous, how everything is handled is very important to ensuring that the experience is quality. Without an amazingly trained staff ready to work with the clients, this experience could go south very quickly.I am, essentially, writing this letter of praise to the company to thank you for the experience I had flying with you. It was unforgettable, interesting, and informative, and exceeded everything I had expected. I expected to have a good time and be a little nervous, and instead I felt incredible the entire time. I felt like royalty flying over the beautiful skyline of my city, and learned about helicopter aviation as well as facts about the city that I was unaware of before, and I have the wonderful crew to thank for this. I will be recommending your services to those visiting the area, or residents who simply want to view New YorkCity like only a bird would be able to do, and I hope to fly with you again in the future. Thank you again,Juan Garcia
