WONDERFUL!! Loved every second of the trip. Jen in the office was very nice and helpful. Jeff, the pilot was great. I would fly with them again in a heartbeat.

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

Took a helicopter trip over the Newport mansions. Rather quick ride, but worth the effort. Got the $25 video, which is not worth it because it looks at where the copter is going, but the attractions are off to the side.

My daughter gave us a gift certificate for the mansion ride. My wife, my 80 year old mother in-law and I went up for the ride. Airport was easy to find in Middletown. We went up on time and experienced 12 minutes of pleasure. Flew over the Newport Bridge, by Fort Adams, then around Ocean Drive and around the mansions.... More
