Bucket-list item #46: Take a doors-off helicopter ride.
A couple weeks ago, FlyNYON helped me and my good friend Aly check this one off.
After arriving in New York City, we were shuttled to the heliport. Aly and I were both shaking with excitement the whole way there. I think that any fear we would have had (despite Aly and I both being adrenaline-junkies) was completely negated by the surrealness that, yes, we were about to take a helicopter tour over the city.
After meeting our pilot and climbing into the helicopter, the propellers whirred to life. (Cue crazy, messy hair flying everywhere.)
Aly and I couldn’t wipe the goofy grins off our faces for the whole ride. It was an experience unlike anything else.
Big thanks to FlyNYON NYC for this amazing experience!
