This is one of those experiences where you really have to be ther to appreciate it. It's hard to describe it to someone who hasn't done it. I've done a couple of helicopter rides like this. I believe it is something everyone should try. Be a daredevil and have some fun! The views are just what you would expect -... More

So accommodating and friendly. The team and management are amazing, the views spectacular, and the overall experience perfect. This is something not to miss in Newport. We will be making sure to do this in the future and recommend to friends.

I am quite afraid of heights but I cant wait to do this again. We flew at about 300 feet. The first 30 seconds and changing directions was a bit unnerving but it goes away after a few seconds and the owner/pilot will make gradual turns for you. I hope to try to fly without the door next time to... More

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.
