HELICOPTER IN-AIR PROPOSALS
When we say “love is in the air”, we mean it literally. If you’re looking for unique ways to get engaged or just for a creative date idea outside the box, look no further than our helicopter in-air proposals! Our in-air proposals are essentially private NYC helicopter tours that depart from our base at Westchester County Airport. Whether you like to keep the proposal simple or go all the way out, helicopter in-air proposals can be customized to your unique needs. 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!
COUPLE’S PRIVATE NYC HELICOPTER TOURS – DEPARTING FROM WESTCHESTER
The concept of an in-air proposal is that you come in with your unsuspecting significant other like you would for a regular tour. View tours here. You’ll meet the pilot, fill out paperwork and receive a mandatory safety briefing before the flight. Many couples proposed in-flight, however, you will not be able to get on your knee because of the seatbelt and lack of room in the cabin. We recommend proposing before the flight or immediately after landing, next to the helicopter.
Roundtrip hotel transfers are available between Manhattan and Westchester for additional fee. If selected, our driver will collect you from your hotel or residence anywhere in Manhattan, wait while you’re flying and drive you back to Manhattan as well. Our Westchester location is quiet, crowd-free and easily accessible by 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.
In-flight music selection: complimentary upon request. Just bring your smartphone or iPad loaded with your favorite songs and we will connect it to the helicopter.
Champagne toast: complimentary upon request, available only to ages 21 and older.
Photography: we can arrange for a professional engagement photography to go with you on the flight and document everything for an additional fee. This includes a pre-flight consultation to plan your proposal with a cover story, photography time, online gallery with a minimum of 12 images from your flight, digital download of all images in gallery and the option to order prints. Check out these examples of in-air and on-the-ground proposals!
Marry me sign: for nighttime proposal flights we can set up a large, lit “marry me” sign at a nearby location, such as a public park and fly over it (additional fee and restrictions apply). Due to airport security, we cannot accommodate any signs on airport property or any non-flying passengers (friends, family members, etc.).
