but why? helicopters are generally safe right? unless they are using bad pilots or old helicopters.

A malfunctioning helicopter will not glide like a plane but will just drop.

That's actually somewhat of a misconception. Pilots have a way of countering the drop.

SmarterEveryDay did a video on this.

I got one of those from a friend, code only with none of the T&Cs. So far I have been unable to get the code working for any of Blade's services whatsoever.

Rides between Manhattan and NYC airports are now $120 with promo code AIRSOCIAL, I also saw a code for another $50 off (total of only $70!) but I think it's a referral, maybe @Dan can post one.

If anyone gets this and can post the T&C, I'd appreciate it.

I once got similar from Amex. IIRC, there was a minimum spend, as well as a requirement of using an Amex.
