Helicopters are so beloved that they've earned countless nicknames, such as "choppers," "harleys" (short for harley-copters), and "motor-cycles," for the many cycling motors they contain. Be an easy glider with this Groupon.

$99 for a Helicopter Mansion Tour for Three ($177 Value)

With an experienced pilot at the helm, the Robinson R44 Raven zips through the air for a 10- to 12-minute jaunt over the expansive properties of Newport. Passengers may take in stunning views of fall foliage and ocean-side estates such as Rosecliff mansion, Marble House, Hammersmith Farm, and The Breakers.

Bird's Eye View Helicopters

As an aerial photographer, it makes sense for Jeff Codman to pilot a Robinson R44 Raven. The viper-red aircraft affords him unlimited freedom of movement, nearly 360-degree visibility, and the ability to hover and swoop like a hummingbird as he dips 100 feet above the earth to snap shots of sailboats, unusual toupees, and ocean-side mansions.

Now, with Bird's Eye View Helicopters’ tours, Mr. Codman grants guests the same breathtaking aerial views in the helicopter that he’s enjoyed for more than 20 years. The Fall Foliage tour transports guests over a patchwork quilt of red and orange foliage, and the Island Tour traces a route above Ocean Drive and historic lighthouses. Mr. Codman even lets amateur pilots take the reins during a 25-minute introductory flight.
