Overview and Management’s Plans

Blade Air Mobility, Inc. (“Blade" or the "Company”) is committed to providing consumers with a cost effective and time efficient alternative to ground transportation for congested routes. Blade arranges charter and by-the-seat flights across helicopters, jets, turboprops, and amphibious seaplanes operating in various locations throughout the United States. Blade’s platform utilizes a technology-powered, asset-light business model. Blade provides transportation to its customers through a network of contracted aircraft operators. Blade does not own, lease or operate its own aircraft.

The Company’s asset-light business model was developed to be scalable and profitable using conventional helicopters today while enabling a seamless transition to Electric Vertical Aircraft (“EVA”), or as known within the aerospace community, Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft (“eVTOL”), once they are certified for public use. The Company intends to leverage the lower operating costs of EVA versus helicopters to reduce the consumer’s price for its flights. Additionally, the Company expects the reduced noise footprint and zero carbon emission characteristics of EVA to allow for the development of new vertical landing infrastructure (“vertiports”) in its existing and new markets.

Merger and Organization

On May 7, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), privately held Blade Urban Air Mobility, Inc., a Delaware corporation, (“Old Blade”) consummated transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated December 14, 2020, by and among Experience Investment Corp. (“EIC”), Experience Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EIC (“Merger Sub”), and Old Blade. The Merger Agreement provided for the acquisition of Blade by EIC pursuant to the merger of Merger Sub with and into Old Blade (the “Merger”), with Old Blade continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of EIC. On the Closing Date, and in connection with the closing of the Merger Agreement (the “Closing”), EIC changed its name to Blade Air Mobility, Inc. (See Note 3).


As of June 30, 2021, the Company had working capital of $332,160, including cash and cash equivalents of $30,003. The Company had net losses of $30,868 and $9,447 for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

The Company expects to continue to incur net losses in the short term, as it continues to execute on its strategic initiatives. Based on the Company’s current liquidity, the Company believes that no additional capital will be needed to execute its current business plan over the next 12 months from the date of issuance of these financial statements.
