|Description||:||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, new technology could open a new chapter in short-distance airborne commuting.

Airships also suffer from tragedy trauma. Even today they still use helium instead of hydrogen. I hate noise, so I am more sympathetic to lighter than air transportation than helicopters.
Hi. Life is short. You never know what's gonna happen in a day (the woman just walking home didn't know it was gonna' be her last moment). God bless, Proverbs 31

these rich people are smoking crack ... even with lame ass new tech , it still requires really good maintenance and safety protocols that will ramp up prices, that the masses will not buy into , how about just making better buses , where is that new tech , were are the driver less buses ?
it was not just in New York but also in Los Angeles and tragic crashes happened in both City's see the disneyland crash. .
It's be just as quiet if MD opened up the notar tech to larger helos. getting rid of tail rotors reduces the noise alot.
Maybe trump will bring it back.
