It really does look like a fantastic dream, doesn't it?

Yes, a really big and passenger-carrying "drone"  ;)

From the World's Fair Information Manual:

Heliport and Port of New York - New Jersey Exhibit

...
There are three Sikorsky S-61N helicopters for the sightseeing and scheduled passenger operations. New York Airways, Inc., uses one of these helicopters for "shuttle Air Bus" service between the heliport, Manhattan and the Port Authority airports.
 
Two of the helicopters are in constant use for sightseeing. These aircrafts carry 24 passengers every 6 minutes to "SEE THE FAIR FROM THE AIR", at altitudes up to 500 feet. Flights commence at 9:00 a.m. and continue long after dark.

----

Anyone know if the sightseeing flights were available both years? The '65 guide only uses the term "scheduled flights."
