Newport, fondly known as the “City by the Sea,” is a treasure trove of attractions and activities that are sure to delight any visitor. Known for its well-preserved historic districts and stunning coastline, Newport is a New England summer resort that boasts a rich sailing history. Traveling to Newport with HeliFlite offers numerous advantages over traditional forms of travel. The flexibility that comes with helicopter travel is unmatched. Unlike commercial airlines, which operate on fixed schedules, a private helicopter charter allows you to depart and land at your convenience, giving you more time to explore all this seaside village has to offer. One of the most renowned attractions is Cliff Walk, a National Recreation Trail in a National Historic District. This 3.5-mile trail offers easy walking conditions and breathtaking views. Newport’s opulent mansions, such as those on Bellevue Avenue and Ocean Drive, are a testament to its grand past and are open for public tours. For wine enthusiasts, a visit to the Greenvale Vineyards is a must. In short, whether it’s maritime history, architectural marvels, or natural beauty you seek, Newport has it all, making it an undoubtedly worthwhile destination.


Nantucket, a beautiful island off the coast of Massachusetts, boasts stunning beaches, charming shops, a vibrant arts scene, and delectable seafood. However, accessing this elusive location via ferry or commercial flight can often be a hassle. HeliFlite offers a superior alternative with our private helicopter charters, preserving your precious time and allowing you more time to immerse yourself in all that Nantucket has to offer. Whether you plan to spend your time exploring the Whaling Museum, Madaket Beach, or Surfside Beach, or you’ve designed a visit to the iconic Brant Point Lighthouse and Great Point Lighthouse, you’re sure to arrive rested and ready when traveling with HeliFlite.
