FlyBLADE Review: On-Demand Helicopter App Everybody’s Dying to Experience


Have you ever found yourself wishing that you could grab a private helicopter ride about as easily as you could grab an Uber ride?

Okay, probably not. But if you’ve ever wondered if you could take a helicopter ride at an affordable price, the answer is a giant, resounding YES.

FlyBLADE, an on-demand helicopter app, is all the rage right now. This Uber-esque app allows customers to book their own private helicopter ride and arrive to their destination in style without completely breaking the bank.

Although FlyBLADE started in New York, the company has since expanded to include Los Angeles and Miami, as well.

If you are interested in checking it out, here’s an awesome list that includes a few examples of where BLADE will fly and the cost of each trip:

BLADE Bounce: West 30th St to JFK in an A-Star helicopter for $195-$295.

BLADEone Miami: Westchester, NY to Miami, FL in a BLADEone helicopter for $1,795.

BLADE Hamptons: West 30th St to East Hampton in an A-Star helicopter for $695.

BLADE Atlantic City: East 23rd St to Atlantic City Hotel’s Helipad in an A-Star helicopter for $3,570.

Although this is not the extensive list of BLADE routes, it does give a great example of some of the prices and routes they are willing to take.

Perhaps most impressive about BLADE, however, is the addition of BLADEone, which is their latest addition — a chartered private plane. A Bombadier CR-J200 that used to sit 60 people has been refurbished to seat just 16 in a comfortable, once in a lifetime flying experience.

The menu on the plane is created by the famed Todd English and all guests are offered an iPad to watch television on and a pair of noise canceling earphones to entertain them during the trip. Other items included in a complimentary bag for BLADEone guests are as follows:

  • 20% OFF Henry Bendel next purchase
  • Glowing stick by MILK makeup
  • Probiotic lotion
  • Hydrating mist
  • $250 towards their next Line purchase
  • Sleeping mask
  • Toothbrush with activated charcoal & toothpaste
  • Charcoal papers
  • Headphones to use with complementary iPad

All customers, whether flying with BLADEone or another FLYBADE carrier, receive access to BLADE’s exclusive lounges before take off. Here, they can catch up with friends, hang out, and grab a few cocktails.

New York City currently has 3 different Michael Beneville designed private BLADE lounges for guests at the following locations: the East 34th Street Heliport, West 30th Street Heliport and now also at the East 23rd Street Marina.

BLADE very well may be pricy, there’s no denying that, but it is well worth the experience if you have the extra cash. Not only is it incredibly affordable when you’re ranking it against competitors, but it’s a truly unique, lavish experience that you and your friends will love.
