The Death and Life of Helicopter Commuting in NYC

Video
Fifty years ago, a helicopter company called New York Airways whisked passengers from the rooftop of the iconic Pan Am Building in midtown Manhattan to any city airport in just 10 minutes. A fatal accident in 1977 brought that era to an end.

40 years later, E-VTOL technology could open a new chapter in short-distance airborne commuting.
