Helicopter tourist flights from New York City’s West 30th St. Heliport (JRA) are no longer allowed under a court order that took effect yesterday. The heliport can still be used for commercial flights, including charter, government transport and emergency operations, until its scheduled closure at the end of 2012. The two helicopter companies based at the heliport—Air Pegasus and Liberty Helicopters—told New York’s WABC that they haven’t flown sightseeing tours for months from that location. Liberty reported stopping tourist flights at the start of 2010, while Air Pegasus transferred tourist operations to the Downtown Manhattan/Wall Street Heliport (JRB) months ago.
