Blade's latest figures.

Blade Urban Air Mobility has reported its latest results for the first quarter of 2021, which showed revenues were up 53% in a period that also saw the firm launch strategic infrastructure initiatives including Chicago and Westchester vertiport alliances.

 “Our focused pursuit of new service and market expansion opportunities will enable us to fly a greater number of passengers between our private terminals in the U.S. and abroad, while maintaining profitable unit economics using current aviation technology. As Electric Vertical Aircraft ("EVA") become certified for commercial use, the value of Blade’s urban air mobility platform will continue to grow. We are also pleased with the progress EVA manufacturers are making towards FAA certification, which is required for commercial service,” said Rob Wiesenthal, Blade’s Chief Executive Officer.

Wiesenthal continued, “With nearly 100 different EVAs currently in the design and certification process, our asset-light model provides us with the flexibility to choose the right aircraft for each of our routes so Blade fliers can enjoy safe, cost effective, quiet and zero emission air mobility across our network as these next-generation aircraft become available.”

Blade and Ross Aviation to form strategic alliance

Blade and Ross Aviation to work together to mutually develop plans for a vertiport in Westchester and to offer Blade services at Ross Aviation locations in Massachusetts and California


BLADE Urban Air Mobility and Ross Aviation have entered into a strategic alliance to speed up the roll-out of urban air mobility services in the regions where Ross Aviation and Blade operations overlap. 

In December of 2020, Experience Investment Corporation agreed to merge with Blade, which will create the only publicly traded urban air mobility platform in the United States.

Ross Aviation has its headquarters in Denver and is dedicated to soaring higher in the flight hospitality services they provide. The firm currently operates 17 fixed base operations (FBOs) under the Ross Aviation, Rectrix Aviation, Alaska Aerofuel, Island Air and Great Circle Aviation Services banners.
