Brooklyn Helicopter Flight Maps

Heat maps showing constant commuter/charter helicopter traffic over Brooklyn, including many environmental justice communities

Non-essential (commuter & charter) helicopters pass over many Brooklyn neighborhoods multiple times every day. If you are a Brooklyn resident and suffer from regular helicopter overflights and associated noise, it is very likely these flights are commuter flights, usually to/from JFK airport and Manhattan. The vast majority of the time they are not police, medical, etc.

At this time the majority of these flights are operated by Blade – many of the maps below show a helicopter with tail N92N, a confirmed Blade-contracted helicopter. N69F and N38BL are other tail numbers known to be used by Blade.
