New York is a city of dizzying heights. From the Freedom Tower at One World Trade to the Top Of The Rock at Rockefeller Center, there’s a never ending array of jagged rooftops, windows and river views along the narrow island. There’s a cool promotion going on right now, allowing you to take in Manhattan from above, from the comfort of a gorgeous helicopter. The city will never look the same again…

FlyNYON somewhat regularly offers $99 – 12-15 minute helicopter photo tours of New York City. At the moment, the company is celebrating Pride, and offering 20% off, for a total price with taxes of just $85. At less than $200 for a NYC helicopter tour, that’s waaaay below average and is bound to be an awesome photographic experience, even if the doors must stay on.

The Code

Simply head to and enter Pride20 when searching the $99 deals. The promo code works for any package, so if you’re looking for a longer, upgraded experience, you’ll be able to take 20% off as well. The best part? Even though the code is centered around Pride Week, it seems to work all year. And even if you don’t have dates locked in yet, you can buy a ticket and schedule later. Easy!

Even with a 20% discount and a great price, $7 a minute for about 12 minutes better be good. Fortunately, it’s New York City we’re talking about, and on a beautiful day, it’s ALL good. The tour promises: Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, the Freedom Tower, and the waterfront of Battery Park. Manhattan looks amazing from the Southern tip, which should make this a fantastic experience. We get nothing for telling you about it, but hey, $84 for a tour of NYC from above sounds pretty excellent. And if you’re a worrier, you can purchase weather insurance for $9, which allows you to secure a refund if there’s bad weather and you’re not around long enough to reschedule. Phew.

Enjoy the ride!
