We took my father for a ride. From scheduling flight time to the actual flight was a breeze. Jenn from Bird's Eye was wonderful on the phone and so personable and friendly in person. Our pilot, Jeff, was great. The view is breathtaking and the flight was very smooth. We also had another helicopter tour in NYC 2 days after... More

Excellent short flight over the Newport area, giving a different perspective. Very friendly and efficient, and it was nice that it was just the two of us, so we could choose our seats. When we told the pilot where we were staying he flew over our cottage! Good value for money as well.

The lighthouse helicopter ride about 25 minutes and 45 miles. Flew over the bay, ocean, Jamestown, Newport, lighthouse and mansions. Was a wonderful gift from our family for our 50th anniversary .

We certainly did experience a "bird's eye view" of the picturesque Newport coastline. Jeff, our knowledgeable pilot, shared many notable facts about the area. He was most willing to field any questions we had as well. A lovely way to spend an afternoon and a great opportunity to enjoy Newport from a different perspective! Looking for a gift idea? This...

I wanted to try something out of the ordinary after a year of cancer treatment and this was it. Spectacular is what I would call it. Jeff our pilot was great at pointing out all the landmarks. Being a first timer and a little nervous Jeff's experience makes that all go away before you leave the ground.. The views from... More

There is no better way to get an overview of everything Newport has to offer. The view is amazing. We got to see all of Newport from the perfect vantage point. Super smooth ride. Got some great pictures too!

We have been in Newport on many occasions, this time on recommendation of a friend we took this ride. The weather was with us, perfect sunny afternoon in December :-) . More importantly, the aircraft was brand new, the owner/pilot had just flew it in from LA the week before, he was very friendly and competent at his job. We... More

We had taken a helicopter trip around LA a couple of years ago, so we knew how well such a trip shows a visitor what there is to see. So it was with great pleasure that we took the trip around Newport and the coast. We got to see the layout of Newport, surrounding areas, our hotel and the mansions.... More
