We first began in the helicopter charter NYC business in April of 1986, transporting business men and women to and from the city and other locations in the tri state area. In 1990, we added our sightseeing division; recognizing and answering to the surge of tourism in NYC and the need for a new and exciting attraction.

Liberty Helicopters has over 25 factory trained pilots with an average of 10 years experience. Many of our pilots are former US Military and NYPD individuals, so they come to us with a very disciplined background and training. Liberty employs highly trained pilots with many years of experience. We require all pilots to receive Airbus factory training on a regular basis, specifically the requirement of FAR part 135 air carrier standards. Additionally, our pilots are supported by some of the most highly trained maintenance crews in the industry. Our pilots have a thorough knowledge of the northeast region and of NYC, as they are excited to provide our customers with a safe and professional helicopter ride over Manhattan, coupled with knowledge on many of the city’s top attractions that can be viewed by air.


Liberty Helicopters has frequently received the Annual Safety Award from the Helicopter Association International, along with being a recipient of the Eastern Region Helicopter Council Fly Neighborly Award. Through the years, our staff have also been recognized and awarded for their excellence in service and performance by various aviation and travel and tourism organizations.

All of our highly trained pilots and aviation maintenance technicians receive regular recurrent Airbus factory training, specifically the requirement of FAR part 135 air carrier standards. Our fleet is serviced on a daily basis in our own 24/7 days a week maintenance facility. This, coupled with our unsurpassed safety and security measures, assures our passengers the safest and most pleasurable experience possible.
