Picture this: it’s dusk in New York City, and you and your beloved are flying high in the sky over one of the most iconic cities the world has ever known. The Brooklyn Bridge is laid out like a magnificent serpent below you, while the East River shimmers, glistening from streaks of quickly fading sunlight. As the sun sets over New York City, you turn to face the love of your life and, with a burst of courage, ask him or her to marry you.
While this may seem like a scene out of a romantic movie, it could be your reality. If you are preparing to propose to your partner, why not make it a proposal to remember throughout your lives. NYC helicopter tours are the perfect setting for a marriage proposal, combining romance, adventure, and an undeniably beautiful setting that you’ll remember forever. We’ve pulled together some tips to help you plan the perfect proposal!
1. Choose which of the NYC helicopter tours is right for you. New York Helicopter offers several different options, each of which includes different New York landmarks and routes. While what you see on each tour differs, they also differ in terms of length. For something as momentous as a marriage proposal, it is smart to go with the longest of our NYC helicopter tours (20 to 25 minutes). This gives you time to set the stage for a romantic proposal and evening to follow.
2. Ask lots of questions. In addition to choosing which of the NYC helicopter tours is right for you, you’ll likely also have a lot of questions: Should you bring the ring on the helicopter or bring a dummy ring? What kind of footwear do you need to wear? Be sure to ask all of your questions well in advance of your tour date.
3. Decide when on the NYC helicopter tours you’ll pop the question. Because many people are nervous about popping the question to their beloved, it is worth considering ahead of time whether you’ll ask the question as soon as you’re up in the air, letting you both revel in your happiness for the remainder of the flight, or when you’re above a certain landmark or monument.
4. Prepare to celebrate! NYC helicopter tours last anywhere between 12 and 25 minutes, so it is important to have a plan in place to celebrate once you’re back on land. Research cozy restaurants near the tour’s end point, or arrange a limousine or taxi to be waiting upon your return to whisk you to your next romantic spot.
