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!


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.).

Escape the rush of New York City for a romantic evening in Westchester. Just like Manhattan, the secret 6th borough offers exciting activities and dining options but in a much less crowded setting. Without the burden of having to plan every detail, you can truly focus on your significant other and your special date. The Westchester Helicopter Engagement experience includes a 30- or 45-minute couple’s private NYC helicopter tour on the helicopter of your choice, in-flight champagne toast, music, professional engagement photography, a dedicated driver for the evening and a romantic fondue dinner at The Melting Pot in White Plains with a bottle of Moet and half a dozen roses.



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.
