Virtual Tour
Helicopter Journey over Manhattan






I would like to offer a virtual journey on helicopter over Manhattan. You will see New York in details bird's eye view.

I recommend to make your browser to a full-screen display mode firstly. Otherwise the panoramas from our helicopter can be opened into the view which is not convenient for the observation.

There are blue marks of photography places on a map below. If you click the mark, you will open a description and a picture-link to the interactive helicopter panorama. The image can be zoomed in, zoomed out, rotated all around including up and down. Your browser will automatically set to panorama's viewing, but in case it is necessary, you will find a reference to Plug-ins' Installation for Spherical Panoramas Viewing on this page.







Besides, you can take journey without the map if you follow the pictures below. Each picture is a link to a panorama.

This is the end of our helicopter journey over Manhattan. Congratulations! Not every New Yorker has ever realized something like that. I hope you enjoyed. See you later!

IIf you like to fly over Manhattan by real helicopter, go to Liberty Helicopters

For a better photography it is more convenient to charter a helicopter. In this case you can fly everywhere you wish and not follow the tourist route which is determined beforehand

I’m grateful to Andrei Zubets for the help in photo material processing.
