According to Mashable, Uber has now teamed up with Airbus to launch a test program which offers helicopter rides for its service.
"It's a pilot project," Airbus CEO Tom Enders told the Wall Street Journal on Sunday. "We’ll see where it goes—but it’s pretty exciting."
The program will be set to kick off during this years Sundance Film Festival, to open up the levels of transportation getting to the event. Think of all the celebrities that will be using it, *hint-hint* to and from the event. What a smart strategy, it is.
More on this as it develops further. Could you imagine a world where a helicopter ride is only a click of an app away??
