One of our flights last week involved an eyecatching combination of stunning vehicles – both in the air and on the ground.
The flight was for an exciting media project with Chivas 18 and PininFarina, which involved taking 8 VIPs on an experience to remember. The global whisky brand and Italian designer have joined forces again on a limited edition whisky, Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Chapter 2. And this was a suitably stylish launch celebration.
With iconic style the theme of the day, each guest was collected from home in a different Ferrari. The eight different models used were The Dino; the 355; the 360; the 430 Spider; the 599; the California; the 458 Italia; and the 458 Spider.
The passengers were driven in their Ferraria to The London Heliport in Battersea – the most central vertical gateway from the capital, where we had arranged for two helicopters waiting – a EC120 and EC130. After boarding, they enjoyed a short and scenic helicopter transfer across to the most stylish of London’s private jet airports, Farnborough. What better airport choice for a celebration of design?
At Farnborough the group transferred to their 13-seater Embraer Legacy 650 private jet. Their hosts from designers Pininfarina were waiting on board, along with the team from Chivas Regal. We flew the group to Scotland’s Aberdeen Airport, from where it was a short VIP ground transfer to the Strathisla Distillery in Keith. There they enjoyed a distillery tour, whisky tasting and lunch.
The trip was organised by PR agency NMA Associates, to celebrate the new design collaboration, which includes a limited edition Ice Press and Ice Drop Mould.
At the end of the afternoon, the group travelled back to London by the private jet, helicopters and Ferraris, ending the evening for dinner at the chic modern surroundings of London’s Connaught Hotel.
