We have the following resources to serve your aerial photography needs:

We can operate from any of the 12,000 public airports in the United States, from public heliports such as those around Manhattan, or from your company's backyard or parking lot. We work regularly at sites throughout New England.

How to Book

If you need only a helicopter and pilot, call 781-274-6322 to reach the East Coast Aero Club front-desk dispatcher (staffed 7 am to 6 pm, seven days a week).

If you need an entire project accomplished, email Philip Greenspun,, to schedule. Please include the following details:


If you need only the helicopter, we have the following rates:

There is a one-hour minimum charge. The final charge is based on rotor spinning time, from engine start to engine stop. A 1.2-hour flight in the R44, for example, would be $600 for the first hour and 0.2*$450=$90 for the fraction, for a total of $690.

East Coast Aero Club has more than 40 aircraft, 30 employees, and our front desk staff can process payments by check, cash, debit or Visa/Mastercard.

For our own photography services, if the deadline is flexible, we charge only an additional $200.
