      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!

      It was sensational! The pilot Nic (an Englishman) was more than friendly and explained the skyline great. The procedure at the airfield was completely straightforward. Only the way there was a surprise. Contrary to other providers that start in Jersey, Ross Aviation is located in White Plains. By train and then by taxi, that's not a problem. All in all - great!

      Super professional, well organised but most of all great experience, a little different to the tours offered downtown, but worth it for the private flight and great views of Manhattans iconic buildings Empire State, Chrysler and the Rockefeller, as well as the bronx and Harlem. Only down side the is travel time from downtown. But on the whole well worth every penny
