A Long Island flight instructor took his marriage proposal to new heights -- and the sky was no limit. 

Mike Nelson, 22, took his girlfriend Jessica Rispoli for a flight over the Hudson River in Cessna 172.

Mid-flight, he asked her to read off a checklist for his autopilot, video shows. The final item on the list was his proposal.

They touched down at MacArthur Airport to a salute by the local fire department, where Nelson is a volunteer EMT.

Rispoli accepted the proposal.
