FLY TAILWIND

Listen to 360 Magazine’s President Vaughn Lowery chat with one of Tailwind Air’s Co-Founders and VP of Marketing and Director of Schedule Services Peter Manice on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

Crafting an unforgettable experience in the air, Tailwind Air is a seaplane charter airline revolutionizing travel as we know it. As a veteran-owned businesses, they operate out of Westchester Airport and Bridgeport. Tailwind is the perfect alternative for those looking for a quicker, more individualized travel plan.

Flying out of Manhattan previously was a hard, time-consuming task, but not anymore. Tailwind has been proven to be the swiftest way to fly out Manhattan, with stunning views of the entire city. Shuttles conveniently transport guests to Boston Harbor, Bridgeport, CT, or 3 separate destinations in the Hamptons.

“We always had a vision for bringing more direct and faster service between cities.” – Peter Manice

Each seaplane at Tailwind Air is a clean amphibian aircraft, adorned with a quiet cabin that comfortably seats 8. Aircrafts have the ability to land atop land or water and are united by two pilots and stunning views along the way. Operating under FAA standards, passengers are allowed one bag under the weight of 20lbs to security for all those aboard.

Tailwind, too, operates an array of seaplane charters to locations like Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, Fishers Island, Upstate New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Virginia.

Vaughn Lowery had the opportunity to ride aboard one of Tailwind’s seaplanes. After arriving at the New York Skyports Seaplane Base, the seaport had a waiting room area for guests. Once inside the lounge, snacks and refreshments were available for passengers awaiting to board.

Guests were greeted with a gate/seaport agent upon embarquement to the aircraft. Once everyone boarded the plane, it took a short 15 seconds to rise into the air from the sea. Leaving Manhattan and setting out towards Bridgeport, CT, the stunning viewpoint of the entire city was a highlight of the trip.

After landing and docking, Vaughn was able to enjoy shopping and culinary greatness in Bridgeport.

“In desperate need for some retail therapy … I decided to indulge in a bespoke experience with my treasured leatherware brand, Coach–under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers since 2014. Their league messenger spoke to me so I had it personalized with hardware and vanity tags … Not to mention, we made it back in time to witness an MLB game at Yankee Stadium. Cincinnati Reds were in a pickle!” – Vaughn Lowery

With an exclusive water taxi available to move through Tailwind’s Boston location, trekking to your seaplane is an easy and enjoyable experience. You can now forget the stress of traffic and airports with the convenience of Tailwind’s seaplanes. Hail the water taxi easily via phone for retrieval before heading back to the docking air station.

Once aboard, each seaplane is equipped with seat belts, air conditioning, noise reduction headsets, aisle and window access, and an unforgettable view of New York City, Boston, and New England. Extra face masks are available for passengers to ensure proper protection.

In a limited summer package deal, Tailwind is offering buy one flight and get another free! Through July 21, visitors can buy one ticket and in return obtain one free Boston-Manhattan flight. Departures range from July 4 to September 5. Seaplane season is in full affect, with the summer months being the best time for flight. Tailwind discontinues travel during the winter months of December to March to ensure safety of guests and pilots. There’s no time like now to fly with Tailwind!
