HUDSON VALLEY FALL FOLIAGE HELICOPTER TOURS

New York State’s picturesque fall foliage season is not to be missed. Instead of crowded parks and trails marvel at the cascade of blazing reds, yellows and oranges of Hudson Valley fall foliage from the comfort of a helicopter. Helicopters lift off from a quiet location at Westchester Airport and in just a few minutes you will find yourself soaring above historic and natural landmarks dressed in fall colors. All tours are personally narrated by friendly and experienced pilots.

 

Fall foliage helicopter tours are available 7 days a week, weather and aircraft maintenance permitting, from mid-September to early November.
