    So to start off my 4 day weekend I decided to do a spotting run to the East 34st Heliport!! I was there for a little over an hour and the action was non-stop!! And a big part of that action was a steady stream of helicopters being used by Blade, the Uber-like company mentioned in the article!! Seems like everyone was heading out to the Hamptons!! Well at least heading EB thats for sure!! In fact Blade has their own Terminal at 34st, the south building all renovated and looking nice!! Also in were two "heavy" models that might be described by these people as "noisy", a couple of AW139s and the big S-92!! The S-92 was great to see as it has been on my helo spotting bucket list for a long time!! Picked a good day to be there!!

    That's actually sounds pretty cool Gerard, some day I'll have to do some helo spotting. I'd love to catch an Mi-24 sometime
