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.

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!
