Uber has rolled out their ‘UberChopper’ service in China celebrating one year since its official launch in the country. The five-year-old U.S. ride-sharing app launched service in Shanghai 12 months ago. Uber representatives said today that they would be launching the service on April 25th.

The service starts and ends with UberBlack transportation to a helipad near downtown Shanghai. Riders will board a EC135 helicopter and take a 30-minute arterial tour over scenic spots and landmark buildings in Shanghai. The service will cost RMB3,000 (US$ 484).

UberChopper will be a one-day pilot program for the time being. The China office will decide whether to continue the service according to market feedback.
