Blade is offering by-the-seat helicopter flights operated by California-based Part 135 Orbic Air between the NBAA-BACE Las Vegas Convention Center and Henderson Executive airport, home to the NBAA-BACE aircraft display. Seats can be booked on the Blade mobile app. Each flight will seat up to six passengers and fly over traffic while passengers enjoy aerial views of the legendary Las Vegas Strip.
“In 2021, every seat was sold out for Blade flights between the convention centre and the outdoor aircraft display, demonstrating the excitement for on demand urban air mobility,” says NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “We're thrilled to work with Blade again to provide this unique opportunity to NBAA-BACE attendees.”
“We are pleased to partner with NBAA to provide a point-to-point helicopter service between the Las Vegas Convention Center and Henderson Executive airport throughout this year's convention,” adds Blade president Melissa Tomkiel. “This programme not only demonstrates the efficiency of urban air mobility, but also highlights use cases that are relevant as we transition from conventional rotorcraft to quiet, emission-free electric vertical aircraft.”
