Meh. I would have gone with a monosyllabic moniker at least passingly evocative of flight.

"Lyft" or something similar, perhaps...

I don't know much about aviation but don't you have to file a flight plan 1st.  Maybe that doesn't apply to something like this.

"HeliUber" would be a bad idea, just for the potential typos.

My favorite is Minnesota's Boundary Waters ride sharing app "Canoeuber".
