Come Fly with Me, Lets Fly, Lets Fly to JFK

You have a flight coming up? You need to get to JFK? Forget about giving yourself time, just take Ubercopter which launched today for all Uber users. (Soft launch was in the summer for Premium members).

You can only take it to one place in Lower Manhattan near the Staten island ferry. Order a seat for $200-225. And you have to watch a safety video before takeoff. Using the helicopters operated from HeliFlite Shares a licensed company.

Also, the copter only shows up if you’re in the geofenced lower Manhattan area.

They say its price is comparative to other companies doing the same thing. But Uber does offer on ground transportation after your flight.

It’s hot not because its helicopters that don’t actually solve a problem, it only solves procrastination but so would hiring an assistant for a day at 200-225.It IS hot because this is a stepping stone for UberAir their all electric ride sharing network launching in 2023. But they have to really burn through a little more fossil fuel before they can go electric.
