30 minute flight will cover mid to upper Manhattan. If you want the full experience including Brooklyn Bridge and the statue then I suggest the 45 min package. Nevertheless, it IS a must when coming the NY. The scenery is great and it's an experience of a lifetime. Kevin was our pilot and he was very informative and polite. We actually got a little more time than we booked for and we appreciate that!
Extremely professional and easy to get to the airport. As we arrived we were kindly greeted and explained all protocols. Safe, fun, highly recommend. Can’t wait to do it again!
