Spring Fever

At Independent Helicopters we couldn’t be happier about this unseasonably warm early spring. Last year at this time we were still flying over a very frozen Hudson River, so we are really happy to see some green things coming back to life! Our tour-season has been kickstarted, our Easter Egg drop was a wild success, and we’ve even been able to do some fun stuff on the ground, like our upcoming 5k. You could definitely say we’ve been bit with spring fever! Make sure you check out our new online booking tool to get your spring off to the right start today!

Also, if you’re not already plugged in, definitely follow along on all of our social media channels to stay up to date with IH news and events.

Dreaming of warmer weather…

We’re so lucky that the February temperatures have been so good to us, but it still seems like summer days are still so far away. After some quality time perusing YouTube we stumbled across this video of an R44 helicopter tour in Hawaii. These are the same helicopters we use, just half a world away! It’s always fun to watch videos like this and see how different an experience can be when you’re in a totally unique setting. The scenery we get to explore in the Northeast is just as beautiful, but it’s hard not to envy the year-long high temps of Hawaii. Are you daydreaming of summer plans, too?

PS: Just a reminder, check us out on Instagram to see some of our exciting day-to-day operations! @Independentheli

Service Highlight: Charter Flights

One of our favorite things to do with clients is spice up their morning commute. How much more exciting would your work day be if you arrived via helicopter? Come on, what a way to impress!

While the idea might seem a little “out there” or too crazy to incorporate into your morning routine, at Independent Helicopters we make the whole experience very professional and relaxed. Did you know that our average helicopter size isn’t even that much bigger than your standard SUV? While the experience is definitely unique to say the least, it’s not as outlandish as you might think. In fact, to us, it’s normal!

Give us a call today to see how your day could be improved with a charter flight.

Valentine’s Day Inspiration

One of our lesser-known services is very close to our hearts, and that is helicopter engagements. What better way to create a memory that will last a lifetime? This unique proposal will be cherished for years to come and admired by friends and family members. One of our favorite things about flying with couples is that we get to share our passion for flying while creating a truly unforgettable experience. It’s difficult to think of a more unique way to bond with your partner than being hundreds of feet in the air together, away from the chaos of everyday life. So, even if you’re not ready to pop the question, think about making your Valentine’s Day experience even more romantic by sweeping her off her feet… literally.
