Become a Better Pilot

Hudson River Corridor Familiarization Course "The New York City Tour." This two hour flight and classroom session will teach you the basics of how to navigate the Hudson River safely and expertly whether it be a day or night operation. You owe it to yourself to learn the "ins and outs" of this most spectacular flight. This is why we became pilots! No pilot should miss out on flying the Hudson River.

Course Mission Details Classroom Briefing: During the classroom briefing you will cover all the details necessary to fly what we call: "The Hudson River Mission." These details will include everything from pre-flight, how to ask for a New York City Tour Clearance, the best way to navigate to the Hudson River from Islip, MacArthur Airport, communications with ATC along the way, and so on. There are many different ways to fly this mission. We will devise a plan that best suits your comfort and experience level.

Flying the Mission An FAA Certified Instructor will then fly the mission with you. This can be done in your aircraft or in a Heritage Flight Academy aircraft. The flight usually takes about one hour. This is a great opportunity for you to ask questions along the way and to reinforce everything you learned in the ground briefing. This flight will also qualify you to rent HFA aircraft so you can "take-up" family or friends.
