Description

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. 

Beginning at Westchester County Airport in White Plains, shared tours are given in 3- or 5-passenger helicopters with other passengers. Just a few minutes after liftoff you will find yourself soaring above historic and natural landmarks dressed in fall colors. All tours are personally narrated by friendly and experienced pilots. 

30-minute tour includes: Castle-on-Hudson, Kykuit (Rockefeller Estate), Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse, Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, Indian Point Energy Center, Harriman State Park, Bear Mountain, US Military Academy at West Point* and the infamous Sing Sing Prison. 

Opt for the 45-minute tour to see Dick's Castle, Bannerman Castle and landmarks south of the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge: Lyndhurst Mansion and The Palisades.

*West Point subject to temporary airspace restrictions
