Uber Copters Take Flight In July
Tired of long awkward drives with your Uber driver? Well, get ready because starting in July long awkward flights with your Uber pilot will be taking off.
Yep, Uber Copters are a thing. But don't get too excited, because they will run you about $200 and are only available in NYC, for now.
According to Engadget, New York City dwelling Uber Rewards members who've obtained Platinum and Diamond status will be able to take advantage of Uber Copter, which will run a pre-set route between a location near the Staten Island Ferry in Manhattan and Kennedy Airport.
Taking a cab from anywhere in NYC to the Kennedy Airport is never a fun experience, so with the average Uber Copter flight time of 8 minutes I completely understand why the "uber" rich would shell out $200 for the quick trip.
