We Are Still Flying!

We Are Still Flying!

Right now it looks like Liberty Helicopters WILL NOT be affected by the recent TFR (temproary flight restriction) that the FAA recently imposed on the Hudson River Corridor.  The "Trump TFR" was put into affect November 9th 2016 and covers a 2 mile radius around NYC to protect the newlely elected president until inaugeration day. 

The TFR was ammended to leave open a portion on the Hudson River corridor on the western side of the river.  Therefore, Liberty Helicopters is still able to circle round the Statue of Liberty and remain outside of the restricted airspace.  Only minor adjustments to the tour route have been made in order to adhere to the restrictions imposted.

Thank you
