Statue of Liberty

To the pilots flying in the vicinity of the Statue of Liberty, she’s referred to as the ‘lady.’ So it might be, ‘Traffic inbound from the north at 500 feet at the lady.’ There’s always some action. Newark traffic control is responsible for the air space but below 1000 feet it’s mostly on the common radio frequency. All pilots, regardless, watch carefully for air traffic in the area. The big jets are way high so there’s really no problem with commercial air traffic. It’s a pretty neat view to be hovering near the lady in a helicopter.
