Helicopters over New York for Healthcare Heroes

Wings Air Helicopters is a Westchester, NY based helicopter company that was founded in 2002. From our humble beginnings we have grown into a premier helicopter company offering innovative services. We are avid advocates of airborne travel and therefore, flying is not merely an occupation, but our passion. 

During this time of unprecedented crisis we have all our heroic healthcare workers in mind: those incredible human beings that cannot shelter in place with their loved ones, they cannot be six feet away from their patients, they put themselves at risk every single shift, and when they go home, they worry about exposing their families to this horrific virus. Facing enormous challenges, they are responding with courage, resolve and exemplary professionalism. They truly deserve our thanks and a show of our appreciation. We at Wings Air Helicopters would like to offer them a tangible thank you: a tour of our majestic Big Apple from the air, overlooking the city and the people that they are fighting so hard to protect. However, with our operations essentially shut down since mid-March we are unable to cover all of the operating costs associated with this initiative on our own. With this in mind, we are calling on you to please help us sponsor helicopter tours for healthcare workers from hard hit hospitals in New York City, Westchester County (NY) and Fairfield County (CT).

Your generous support will allow a healthcare worker plus a companion (if desired) of his/her choice to experience a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour over New York City, free of charge. The suggested donation amount is $150 which will cover 50% of our costs for a 30-minute tour for two passengers. However, please feel free to donate any amount that you can afford, it will all go towards the same goal. We plan to continue this initiative through the end of 2020 depending on the funds raised. We hope to welcome many healthcare professionals on-board to enjoy the magnificent aerial views of New York City and Westchester County.

To recommend a healthcare worker for a complimentary hero flight, or to sign yourself up, please email us at fly@wingsairhelicopters.com to be added to our list.

Thank you for your generosity! Please keep an eye out on our social media channels to see
