ALL REVVED UP: FLEXJET CELEBRATES BENTLEY PARTNERSHIP AND S. FLORIDA REGIONAL EXPANSION
JANUARY 20, 2023
As an exhilarating way to kick the New Year off with unmatched style and complementing performance, Flexjet recently hosted an exclusive event that celebrated automotive and aviation prowess in total tandem.
Held in Miami, the fresh slate of the season presented an aptly timed opportunity to formally highlight new service expansion as well as unveil an exclusive partnership between these two iconic and motion-minded brands. This melding of both Bentley and Flexjet has already been met with much conversation, appreciation, and of course, demonstration.
SOUTH FLORIDA SERVICE EVOLUTION
Flexjet’s Miami base of operations will serve as the seasonal hub for Flexjet’s South Florida helicopter service, which has begun for the 2023 winter season. Flexjet launched its helicopter division to provide last-mile transport for Owners of Flexjet aircraft traveling from airports to their final destinations, a door-to-door travel solution not available through any other provider in the U.S. The reception allowed for an enhanced perspective on the actual utility and efficiency in which the programs and facilities operate.
Flexjet Owners and passengers will be able to travel directly from the landing of their Flexjet aircraft to their final South Florida destinations, avoiding local traffic and delays. In addition, the Sikorsky S-76® super-midsized helicopter has a range of up to 300 nautical miles.
EXCLUSIVE BENTLEY DISPLAY OF MOTORCARS
Aircraft Owners were then invited to tour Flexjet’s complete complement of Bacalar-inspired LXi Cabin Collection™ interiors, exclusively featured in one of the Sikorsky S-76 super-midsize helicopters and a Gulfstream G650™. In a perfect contrast of conveyance, the flagship G650 jet was arranged at nearby Fontainebleau Aviation, just across the street from Concourse Club’s Paddock Lounge where the Bacalar-inspired Sikorsky S-76 was displayed in tandem with a Bentley showcase of its newest cars in the featured 2023 fleet.
The Bacalar Mulliner-inspired Flexjet Gulfstream G650 and Sikorsky S-76 are part of the most alluring automotive cross-over in aviation history. Like every coach-built car they create, our aircraft inherited a level of luxury that only Mulliner can achieve – thanks to a veritable showcase of cutting-edge techniques and materials.
Outfitted in the same sumptuous leather seating accented with its distinguished and meticulously stitched copperhead and basketweave motifs of the Bacalar Mulliner. An entire interior of luxuriously plush upholstery that is further accentuated by hand-sewn, quilted inserts that mimic the Bacalar’s iconic coach-built interior.
The event truly encompassed the all-gas-no-brakes spirit of the occasion, one born of elite racing, aviation, and luxury pedigree. Flexjet aircraft Owners had the opportunity to take a ‘hot lap’ or simulated grand prix around the world’s most technologically advanced driving track with professional drivers on the Concours Club race circuit.
Meanwhile, a lively, upbeat reception experience commenced, featuring The Macallan “M” – the world’s most sophisticated whiskey.
This ultra-rare, casket-aged scotch is best described as an expertly crafted, limited-edition single-malt whisky, presented in a boldly innovative horizontal bottle. The Macallan Horizon encapsulates both brands’ rich heritage and our shared vision of the future.
Cocktail hour was accompanied by a local DJ and live saxophone player. Cocktails and conversation were then promptly followed by light dining service that elevated an array of comfort-food hors d’oeuvres provided by the club’s members-only restaurant, Verge.
The evening concluded with the S-76 Sikorsky spooling to life and departing back to Fontainebleau Aviation, as all those in attendance looked on and captured video of the spectacle. Proving once again that when you become a Flexjet aircraft Owner, you enter a world of unexpected, one-of-a-kind partner experiences.
