Capture one of the greatest cities in the world from the sky.

New York Aerial Doors-Off Photo Adventures – Inspire, Create and Learn.

Take to the skies on a magic carpet ride and experience the surreal nature of floating above this magnificent city while clicking shot after shot from amazing and unthinkable vantage points. The rush is addicting. The experience unforgettable. The results simply breathtaking.

Our Doors-Off Aerial Photo Experience is geared to those who want to photograph from a doors-off helicopter without an instructor. We provide you with a pre-flight aerial photography tutorial so you and your friends can head up into the skies armed with the knowledge necessary to take great aerial photos of Manhattan.

Our Doors-Off Aerial Photo Adventure is the same as our Aerial Photo Experience but include a Professional Photographer Instructor on board with you. You’ll learn first hand, pre-flight and in-flight all the tricks to capturing great aerial photography.

We can tailor any aerial adventure or experience to you desired needs. Universities with photography and film programs are welcome to inquire about group aerial photography or video programs.

NOTE: Due to Trumps residence, there is currently a no-fly zone over midtown Manhattan which prohibits airplanes, helicopters and drones flights below 3,000 feet and within a 2-nautical-mile radius of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. It’s unclear when or if this will be lifted anytime in the near future. The zone effectively runs from the south side of the Empire State Building to about midway across Central Park, and east and west to both rivers. You can still photograph midtown Manhattan’s skyline from either river as well as lower Manhattan, WTC, Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty (which are all outside this zone).

Note: There is a 210 lb. (95 kg) passenger weight limit for the R22. On rare occasions there are weight limitations for the R44 based on the combined weight of group. Our flights depart from locations in New Jersey, and a 30 min train ride from Manhattan. The R22’s smaller size limits its ability to fly directly over Manhattan’s skyscrapers but our pilots will circle Manhattan by flying up the rivers and across Central Park. The R44 has greater range and more power and can fly directly above Manhattan’s skyscrapers. The Bell Jet Ranger is twin turbo powered and the most stable and of the helicopters. Due to security measures, certain airspace can be classified as off-limits at any time. All flights and flight paths are subject to approval by air traffic control and the NYPD. The 3rd seat in the R44 and Jet Ranger is on the right side, with 2 seats in the left side, so the passenger on the right side does not have the same visual experience and at time their view may be limited. Seat selection is on a first come first serve basis. All cancellations must be in writing 72 hours prior to flight time. We fly from several airports in New Jersey, the closest to New York is 30 min drive time from Manhattan and less than 7 min flight time to the Statue of Liberty. Manhattan Heliport pick-ups and drop-offs may be arranged and are priced separately. Flight time is calculated from engine startup to engine shut down. Additional flight is calculated in .06 increments per hour.

WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT AERIAL

Stefano P. - Photography and Film Student

“The adventure was amazing! The thrill of being able to fly over New York City and photograph in such close proximity was just breathtaking. With the doors off, winding in between skyscrapers and racing cars on the bridges was just the beginning. Your talent and skill as a photographer is put to the test as you try to snap off the most scenic and beautiful pictures, while fighting the rush and thrill of being so high in the air. The crew was great as well, and made you feel welcome. The pilots were very well trained and always made you feel safe in the air. There was also something epic about going up with a fleet of three helicopters. Planning formations in the air and flying as a team around the city painted a picture for me of 'storming the city'. I could not recommend this enough to anyone interested in it, it has been the highlight of my conversations and one of the most exciting things I have ever done.”

Troy S. - Cinematographer and Camera Operator

“It truly was an unforgettable experience to fly around the city like that. It was my first time in a helicopter and it really blew my mind to be able to see New York City from that perspective. I loved that I was able to get a glimpse of Manhattan in the daytime and then see the awesome light show after the sun sets. Using the video camera and gyro system was also an invaluable experience. It was a great way to actually understand what goes into aerial video and photography. The pilots were not only a pleasure to fly with, but we're extremely helpful in working out and creating the shots. They were very knowledgable about the city and were just as excited to make the cool shots happen. Thanks again!”

Katherine R. - Photographer and Graphic Designer

“From lift off till landing, Photo Workshop Adventures offers you a truly unforgettable experience.  Any apprehensions about flying quickly dissolve within the first few buoyant moments of flight. Competent, experienced instructors and pilots and have your best interest in mind: photographing that unique moment and they work with you to achieve this. With the five boroughs and beyond at your disposal, the biggest challenge is keeping up with the photo ops because believe me they come at an exhilarating fast pace. The experience that you gain from shooting in a helicopter is like no other. You thought you knew the Empire State Building? Think again! PWA Arial Workshops offers you a completely new perspective on the familiar. You’ll walk away with a memorable experience and photos like no others you've taken before. The question when you land is not ‘Did I get the shot?’ because you know you did, it’s ‘When can we go up again?!’
