Phones in a helicopter hovering, yes.

Phones in a helicopter that was moving would probably be disregarded as anomalous readings by Google, because they'd be moving too much faster than the average. Even though 99 of them would arguably tip the average in their favour, having them all appear at the same time quickly would probably show up.
