Our helicopter in-air proposals are essentially private NYC helicopter tours that depart from Westchester Airport base and can be customized with various add-ons. Start a new chapter together by soaring above the iconic Manhattan skyline in your private helicopter, guided by our skilled pilots. Whether you pop the question aboard the helicopter in flight, before takeoff or after landing, it’s going to be one for the books!
The concept of an in-air proposal is that you come in with your unsuspecting significant other like you would for a regular helicopter tour. After check-in and the mandatory safety briefing your proposal is in your hands: pop the question before takeoff, in flight or after landing, next to the helicopter. Our Westchester location can be reached by car or the Metro-North train from Grand Central Terminal to White Plains station then a quick taxi ride. Total travel time approximately 45-60 minutes. Train schedules here.
Due to airport security, we cannot accommodate any non-flying passengers (friends, family members, etc.).

Take a private helicopter from bustling New York City to charming Candlelight Farms in rural Connecticut. Helicopters land at romantic lakeside farm airport during daylight hours. Upon arrival at Candlelight Farms you may pop the question next to the helicopter, in the shade of large, old trees or inside the old fashioned wooden hangar. The hangar can accommodate up to 20-30 people in case you wish to have friends and family members meet you. A small table can be set up with soft drinks upon request. This package includes a professional engagement photographer who will document your entire proposal including the helicopter flight.
Celebrate your engagement at a magnificent Gilded Age villa in the lower Hudson Valley where our helicopters land right on the lawn. Glenmere Mansion was built in 1911 in the style of Tuscan villas, as the country retreat of industrialist Robert Goelet, on a picturesque hilltop overlooking Glenmere Lake. The manicured, formal gardens surrounding the mansion provide the perfect backdrop for engagement photography. Today, it is a luxury escape featuring 18 guest rooms and suites, formal and casual dining rooms, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a spa with exclusive bespoke services. Learn More
