Fly High with UberCHOPPER

With so many great places to go and things to see we know there is hardly enough time in one day to see all of the great sites of our city – unless it’s from a birds eye view. Introducing UberCHOPPER, the chance for Dallasites and visitors to enjoy all of Dallas’ hotspots. Here’s how it will go down, (or up)…

  • From 10am-6pm on Sunday, April 6th, UberCHOPPER will be available for request (for $400) via the app (iPhone/Android) or online at m.uber.com
  • Hit “Set Pickup Location” and if everything looks correct, request your CHOPPER
  • We’ll give you a call for final confirmation of your request and the price of $400
  • An UberBLACK will pick you (and 1 friend up), and transport you to the helipad
  • Enjoy a 25-30 min tour of Dallas brought to you by Sky Helicopters
  • Your driver will be ready and waiting for you at the helipad to take you back to the original pickup location
  • No need to hand payment or tip to your drivers or pilots – payment is automatically charged to the cc tied to your account
  • Of course, no stunt would be complete without some sweet Uber swag 🙂
*Weather will keep the choppers from flying, If there are thunderstorms, UberCHOPPER will not be available. Passengers weight limit is 280lbs per person with 2 passenger limit. Uber is not a direct air carrier. All air services advertised will be provided by SKY Helicopters, Inc.
