Uber and Guidance Air have teamed up for UberCHOPPER, a helicopter service in the Phoenix and Glendale area.
It’s apparently a limited time deal — March 31-April 3 — in which NCAA Tournament Final Four attendees can take an UberCHOPPER ride for $99 (it seems that it’s $124 if you don’t have a Final Four ticket):
Uber Technologies partners with Guidance Air during the NCAA Finals to offer rides over Phoenix and Glendale. The exclusive, limited-time offer allows NCAA Finals’ attendees to request an UberCHOPPER on their smart phone for $99 per person (normally $124 per person) from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 31st through Monday, April 3rd. Once the ride has been initiated, an Uber vehicle will pick up the rider from their location in the Phoenix area and take them to the Glendale Airport where they will board an UberCHOPPER and fly high above the Valley of the Sun.
How to request an UberCHOPPER:
If you’re in the Phoenix metropolitan area between 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from Friday, March 31st through Monday, April 3rd, open the Uber application and slide over to the “CHOPPER” option to schedule a flight. Price: $99 per person. This includes a one-way UberX ride within the Phoenix area to the Glendale airport where riders will board their UberCHOPPER.
It’s really not that bad of a deal, especially if you’ve never been in a helicopter and/or want an awesome view of the Phoenix area. And some folks on Twitter that already took advantage of the offer seem to be happy with their decision:
