To those who travel to New York City for work or pleasure, it’s no secret that time is money – and the city can be costly in terms of unexpected delays, omnipresent traffic and not to mention plenty of people. Whether it’s casual meetings or dinners for essential relationship building, or a carefully choreographed investors visit, every minute counts.

Using the 34th Street Heliport as your starting point, discover how a Flexjet private jet membership can provide direct access to some of our most beloved and exclusive partnerships just steps from this functional Manhattan hub. Ideal indulgences for a full-day excursion or just to stop by next time you are in Midtown.

A Convenient NYC Hub for Flexjet Helicopters

In recent years, private helicopters have become increasingly popular amongst circles of busy executives and high-profile individuals, but not just for arrival theatrics. The door-to-door transit capability and fractional availability is unmatched, making it the most efficient mode of regional aviation out there. One of the most significant advantages beyond landing directly at your destination or another strategic location, is saving yourself from incalculable amounts of valuable time lost to traffic and delays.

Sikorsky S-76 Interior

The Flexjet fleet of Sikorsky S-76 helicopters can easily be arranged to deliver private jet travelers from Teterboro Executive Airport (TEB) and White Plains (HPN) or other major regional airports to points throughout the city. Not to mention the Hamptons in just mere minutes.

This level of accessibility is particularly beneficial for those with multiple meetings or time demands in different parts of the city. A day that would normally require hours in a car shrinks to just moments in a helicopter. In addition to travel efficiency, the Flexjet Sikorsky S-76 features over 37 cubic feet of baggage capacity — more than enough space for your luggage, plus room to spare for an inevitable Madison Avenue retail haul.

Perhaps the most popular destination for this extension of private air travel above New York City is the East 34th Street Heliport – located near the iconic Empire State Building. This is a prime location for those looking to impress clients or partners with a stunning view of the city while bypassing traffic congestion altogether. From this point, all of our below-highlighted partners are just a few minutes walk or car ride from your helicopter.

Flexjet Retail Partners in Midtown Manhattan
  • BERETTA GALLERY – 718 Madison Ave. ( 2.1 miles from E. 34th St. Heliport )

Beretta, sporting firearm craftsmen of Italian origin with plenty of clout to go around, has been in business for about 500 years and is still run by the same family that founded it – 15 generations later.

The flagship Beretta Gallery was established in 1995 on Madison Avenue in New York City. In 2000, the gallery’s facade underwent a facelift to welcome the new Millennium.  A design inspired by the Beretta home in Gardone Val Trompia, the stone used for the hand-chiseled, white and gray facade was locally sourced from quarries and delivered from Italy to the United States. The gallery’s design embodies the traditional values of its residents and pays homage to the Beretta legacy.

Appeal to your inner sportsman and escape to the Beretta Gallery to unwind for a moment and experience a kaleidoscopic array of apparel, firearms and rugged outdoor gear.
