  • Freud and Junge would have fun with that dream!

    Planes from Brooklyn to Manhattan are non-starters, but not quite as absurd as one might assume.

    The only way to take a plane to Manhatan is a sea-plane -- there are 2 seaplane [airnav.com] bases [airnav.com] on Manhatan, but none in Brooklyn (not counting Bennet Field's closed military one), alas for your dream-plan. Brooklyn yacht clubs would probably object to a seaplane taxiing in for a pickup, but perhaps your airtaxi could meet you at a public launching dock?

    But if we open our fantasies up to other machines of the air, there are helicopters from Long Island [flynortheast.com], including the Queens's JFK, Laguardia [newyorkhelicopter.com] airports and Newark too. Brooklyn shares the west end of LI with Queens, but sadly, Brooklyn proper's only airport/heliports are Governors Island [wikipedia.org]'s Army Air Field [airfields-freeman.com] (ex-AAF, apparently closed by USCG well before it became a national monument [govisland.com]?), Bennet Field (Heliport for NYPD only, and itinerant blimps), and the Port Authority/ConEd's private Charles Poletti Heliport.

    So you'd still need to catch a $30 cab to one of the Queens Aiprorts (or Flushing) to catch your $495.00 air-taxi to Manhattan.
