Fly Lindy, a subsidiary of business jet charter operator GrandView Aviation, plans to offer per-seat, scheduled helicopter charter shuttle service between New York City, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, starting as early as June. The company said it will use Sikorsky S-76D and Bell 407GXi helicopters operated by GrandView under the latter's Part 135 charter certificate.

Initial service would be every Monday and Friday, with morning, noon, and evening departures from the D.C. metro area—Martin State Airport in Baltimore and College Park Airport near D.C.—to the Wall Street Heliport in New York City and back. One-way flights will cost $1,500 per seat, a company spokeswoman told BJT.
