There's an Uber service for pretty much everything. Whether you need a luxury ride for one or transportation for six, Uber has you covered.

Now, the popular ride-sharing app is taking to the skies for its latest Austin promotion. Introducing UberChopper, a one-day offer that will deliver you to Circuit of The Americas via helicopter.

Uber has teamed up with Epic Helicopters for the high-flying service, which will only be available on Sunday, October 25. It certainly beats driving out to the track, but UberChopper users must be ready to dish out $400 for the ride — and find a different way home.

A limited number of seats will be available at 11 am on Friday, October 23. If you're interested in flying out to COTA, open your Uber app, request Chopper, and wait for confirmation. Up to five seats can be reserved through one Uber account.

The ride-sharing service is also offering up to $50 off your ride to an undisclosed helipad, where UberChopper will pick you up for your fancy Formula 1 commute.
