About Your Host

WE FLY BECAUSE WE LOVE TO FLY In 2002, former investment banker Javier Diaz founded Wings Air Helicopters. As an experienced pilot he wanted to create a company that would stand above the rest and meet aviation needs for the sheer pleasure and beauty of airborne travel. Wings Air Helicopters was the first helicopter charter company to be based out of Westchester County Airport (KHPN) in White Plains, NY. This unique area just outside of New York City gives us access to metropolitan attractions as well as undiscovered local gems. We are avid advocates of airborne travel, and therefore, flying is not merely an occupation, but a passion of our company. Do you share our passion? If you don’t quite love flying yet, spend some time in our helicopters and see if we can change your mind.

What we'll do

HELICOPTER FLIGHT TRAINING NEW YORK Wings Air Helicopters is a Part 61 professional helicopter flight training school and Part 135 certified commercial operator based out of White Plains, NY. Our helicopter training operations are conducted in the Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter, specifically selected for its superior safety, performance, and comfort over other models. Whether you dream of flying for fun, you want to learn to fly helicopters to further your business, or you have plans of starting an aviation career, we are dedicated to giving you the tools, skills, and knowledge to succeed as a licensed helicopter pilot. INTRODUCTORY FLIGHT LESSON (DISCOVERY FLIGHT) Your first lesson begins with a 30-minute ground briefing covering helicopter flight controls, flying techniques, and safety procedures. You will then be able to join one of our professional flight instructors for an exciting 30 to 60-minute one-on-one flight. Once airborne, you will get the chance to take control of one of our Robinson helicopters while taking in stunning views of Westchester County, the New York/Connecticut coastline and the Hudson River. Helicopters are equipped with Go Pro cameras so you can record and re-live every moment of your flight! The film package is available for purchase for $35. The 30-minute flight is priced at $315 + airport fees; the 60-minute flight is priced at $605 + airport fees. Flying lessons are not permitted in NYC airspace. Weight limit 250 lbs per person.
