We didn't reserve ahead of time but called in the morning and they were able to fit us in that day. Would highly recommend... More

This was my first helicopter trip and I truly enjoyed it! We went to the airfield about 1 1/2 to 2 hours drive from Boston. The heliport is part of a private airport in Middletown, Rhode Island. The helicopter tour office is in a modern building and the lobby area was quite spacious and comfortable - reminded me more of... More

All was as described in web site. We were picked up at cruise ship port (we opted for the round trip van ride they provide). The friendliest people you can deal with. This is THE way to see Newport. We took the mansion tour. If you really want to see the "cottages" in all their glory, the chopper is the... More

This was a surprise from my husband (I thought we were going on a boat cruise) and it was amazing. We sat on a bench and watched people sky dive while we waited. We watched a quick safety video and went right up.Patrick our pilot was friendly and informative. He had plenty to say about Newport and the attractions. This... More

We went for the bay tour and had the absolute best time! All the staff were friendly and professional. Our pilot was fantastic and also pointed out all the landmarks as we went. The views were just breathtaking! They offer a dvd of your trip which we did order. If I could give them more stars I would!

We had a very smooth flyover of Newport, RI on a Bird's Eye helicopter on a very bright, clear, sunny day Even though I'm 81, I had no problem with this flight and would highly recommend it for anyone!

Jeff and Kristin are wonderful hosts from the minute you check in and board the helicopter. They make sure you are safely seated and then, on your tour, Jeff gives you information about... More
