Blade is a new app that provides a helicopter to the Hamptons from New York City to those who are helicopter-less. With the mobile app, users can book a seat on the next scheduled flight out for about $575, or pick a time that better suits them and crowdsource out the rest of the seats to keep costs of the $3000 ride down.

If you happen to make a booking and it has to be cancelled due to poor weather conditions, Blade will provide its users with a credit for their next trip as well as get you to your destination in a Maserati at no cost.

Blade is a new startup that's been running since Memorial Day, with plans to expand its service to include trips from L.A. to Las Vegas and Boston to Cape Cod.
