“Great experience!!!! Totally worth the money! We got the honor of riding with the owner of the company and she was sooo experienced and sweet. She even took us to our house to snap a pic, since it was close.”

They were very patient with helping my grandmother get to the helicopter, get in and out of it, taking pictures, etc. Met the owner Heather and she was very friendly also. Such a great experience and I highly recommend flying with this company! I look forward to flying again. Thank you guys so much for such an amazing time that we will talk about for many years and will cherish the memories.”

Tracy Minnich Neer View from the Helicopter“The pandemic forced us to find an alternate way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and Heather turned out to be the silver lining on our silver anniversary. Now we can’t imagine having spent it any other way! Seeing the brilliant fall colors enveloping the Hudson River, Mt. Beacon & West Point from this viewpoint was utterly fascinating. We highly recommend booking a tour with Independent Helicopters. Heather’s company is top notch and you will not be disappointed. Kudos to you, Heather! Thank you! We’re still smiling!”
