  • Bird's Eye View Helicopters‎
    As an aerial photographer, it makes sense for Jeff Codman to pilot a 2013 Robinson R-44. 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 25 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.

  • New England Helicopter Academy
    From their nests at Plymouth Municipal Airport and Norwood Municipal Airport, New England Helicopter Academy?s Schweizer Model 300 helicopters lift fledgling aviators into the skies for flights ranging from introductory runs to intensive training courses. Combining the choppers? precise handling with academy president Rick Smith?s rigorous training regimen, pilots-to-be learn to expertly handle real-life flying situations such as landing at uncontrolled airports, flying in inclement weather, and airlifting bananas to King Kong. In addition to serving as mid-air classrooms, choppers also treat students to sky-high sightseeing, with training flights often motoring over New England landmarks including the Cape Cod coastline and cities such as Boston and Providence.
