In 2000, Jeff Codman bought a 1977 Enstrom 280C helicopter with a Small Business Association loan, a few credit cards and a dream. Initially focusing on flight instruction, aerial photography and “barnstorming” rides at local fairs, festivals and air shows, 2007 saw the company upgrade to the first of many brand new helicopters. We continue striving to provide the very best helicopter tour experience bar none. Bird’s Eye View Helicopters / Newport Helicopter Tours is a thriving family run business that has not only provided safe, professional and thrilling tours of the greater Newport area for 50,000 people over the last 17 years, but also offers the best helicopter charter and aerial photography service in the region.
We fly the Robinson R44, the most popular helicopter in the world. Our Viper Red helicopters are purchased brand new and meticulously maintained in-house, so we are intimately aware of all aspects of the aircraft and their safety.
The fact that we are a small family-owned business leads to a sense of camaraderie and pride that we hope is reflected in your flight with us. Whether it is Jeff, his wife Kristin, who oversees accounting and scheduling or their children – Lily and Jeffrey Jr. , you are likely to run into a Codman family member at some stage of your flight with us. Be assured that all of us are fully committed to you having a superior experience.
If you see us flying overhead on your next trip to Newport, don’t just wave, come fly with us to see Rhode Island as you’ve never seen it before. We’ve come a long way since
our “Barnstorming” days.
