Liberty Helicopters has been serving the city of New York for more than two decades featuring 10 premier Airbus Helicopters in their fleet. They began their journey into the air in 1986 acting as a flight service for business men and women, flying them to and from New York City and around the tri-state area. Throughout the years, they expanded their operations into a full-fledged tourism service matching the rising appeal of New York City’s tourist attractions. They have since maintained the title of biggest and most accomplished sightseeing flight service in the city, winning several prestigious awards each year.
