New Uber Experience Offers Malibu Helicopter Rides


There might be a few more helicopters roaming the Malibu skies on Sunday as Uber has announced plans for an “UberChopper” during the Labor Day Weekend.

Uber, a car-ride app that has taxi drivers on edge, appears to be delving into the helicopter business, with plans to charge $500 per person or a $1,500 flat rate (maximum of three guests) for those wishing to fly from Downtown L.A. for a coastal tour of Malibu, and an eventual landing at Malibu Wines. From there, guests will be taken on a “safari tour” of Malibu Wines. 

The unique ride is only available on Sunday, August 31, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a post on Uber’s blog site. It’s unclear whether Uber plans to begin offering helicopter rides regularly.
