This just happened in the past hour. I only recorded 10 mins on my Galaxy S3 but it was outside for more than 30 mins. The sounds of the helicopter woke me up. Someone passing by asked me "Any idea what's going on?" I just shook my head, "Don't know." So can anybody explain why a helicopter would stay stationary in the air for that long? This happened at approximately between 6:30am to 7:15am today. Not saying it's a conspiracy but it's just strange because I've never seen this.

Just finished uploading the recording on youtube. Here it is: Helicopter

I am located in Guttenberg, NJ. Looking over the Hudson River and NYC skyline. And no, I don't often see helicopters. Especially not this early in the morning and low enough that it's sounds wake up me. I normally see Airplanes most of the time.

Any number of reasons.

It could be a police helicoptor stationed there waiting for whoever they are chasing to be spotted, on standby if you will.

Could be a construction helicopter waiting for the crews to finish what they are doing before hauling something away.

Could be a lifeflight helicopter waiting for emergency crews on the ground to stabilize someone before transport.

Could be some sort of coordination training and its waiting for its role to come up in the excersize.

Could be a new pilot getting a license and they are performing a stationary test for 30 minutes.

Could be any endless number of things. One thing I'm pretty sure of though, it wasn't spying on you.

Could be any one of a thousand reasons! I wouldn't worry about it for real ,just going to give yourself an ulcer..lol
now if it was hovering directly over your house for fifteen minutes then maybe you should start to worry, especially if you see guys in blacked out clothing or camouflage holding weapons.

What about a traffic news helicopter? We have them here in the UK, they are stationary, observing a particular road and keep TV, radio and internet updated. Is there a large road nearby OP? Could there have been an accident?

Only thing is, our traffic helicopters are brightly coloured, this one seems dark. But you are in the States, so maybe you use different ones.
I am not saying that this is what it was at all, just another idea.

Also, where we live, we have a high security prison [in the middle of the countryside], sometimes we get helicopters which seem to stay in the same place for a long time and we wonder if someone has escaped.

normally, when you see them hover for a long time they are doing aerial surveys of the land.

"Helicopter was flying stationary above our town for 30+ mins."

Happens here in sunny Glasgow all the time, get used to it im afraid. As for the reason well there are a multitude of reasons why a helicopter may hover for what seems like a long period of time. I will add hovering burn a lot of fuel.

Watch your local news tonight to see if any police chases, fires or other activity is reported.

I know what the Helicopter is doing there.


They're trying to steal your fresh new take on "found footage" movies.

Appearantly, it has been going on for a few months in your area,

Hudson Reporter, Noisy Aircraft



For months, residents in Jersey City Heights, Journal Square, and Greenville have been complaining about helicopters from a Kearny-based heliport that fly just above rooftops and trees in these communities. Noise from these aircraft has been a concern, as has the fear that in the event of an accident people in these residential areas could be seriously injured.




Sitler and other residents said they have seen helicopters flying as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 11:30 p.m. and even after midnight.




She said the problem began after the South Kearny-based HHI Heliport was approved and opened for business in 2011. “The heliport in South Kearny obtained permission earlier in the week from Newark Liberty International Airport to fly at the maximum height of 1,000 feet, presumably in an effort to reduce noise to the communities over which they fly,” said Lopez.


I thought you might find interesting, peace.

Oh well. Not as excited as I thought it would be. Just don't like being woken up so early in the morning by copter sounds, it's rude.
