Uber is best known for its ride-sharing service, but the company is offering an entirely different stratum of transportation at CES 2017 with UberCHOPPER. Rather than ground-bound cars, UberCHOPPER gives users the opportunity to order a helicopter ride for a limited time.

The UberCHOPPER rides can be ordered directly through the Uber app, just like any other Uber service. To be sure, the helicopter rides are significantly more expensive than a normal pickup, costing a flat fee of $99 per person. Considering the aerial views of Las Vegas, that fee is likely worth it.

UberCHOPPER is part of a partnership between the app and Sprint, the telecommunications service provider. Sprint is also offering free $10 rides to and from CES 2017 through the Uber app.
