When the Robinson helicopters at Queen City Helicopter Corp. aren’t acting as airborne classrooms for aspiring pilots, they’re whisking passengers on aerial tours of nearby landmarks. The peaks of Crowders Mountain, the sports arenas of uptown Charlotte, and the horses and buggies of the Charlotte Motor Speedway loom large in the windows of the chopper after it takes off from the company's very own private, FAA-approved heliport. On the ground at the FAA flight school, pilots safely test their abilities inside a flight simulator and study in the onsite classroom.
Charlotte Party Charters ferries the fete-focused around Charlotte-area bars, clubs, events, and more in comfort and style.

Ride-sharing company EcoSeat takes carpooling to a professional level, minimizing the environmental impact of trips longer than a commute but too short for air travel.

As their charges work, drivers follow highways to Charlotte’s neighboring cities or chauffeur airport trips to ensure no one has to wait on their roof to grab the tail of a passing zephyr.
