The Bournemouth International Airport-based distributor for the Swiss manufactured Pilatus PC-12 executive aircraft has arranged for top designer and star of Channel 4’s Four Rooms, Celia Sawyer, to provide an exclusive interior design service for would-be owners of new or pre-owned aircraft.
The UK Pilatus Centre, which acts as sales distributor for the award-winning PC-12 aircraft in the UK, Spain, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, has to date sold 40 new $4.6 million PC-12s to cash rich – time poor customers who make the most of the aircraft’s cost efficient convenience, and versatility, offered by its long non-stop range and ability to land at small airfields as well as international airports.
Matt Mackenzie, Group Sales Director, said that Celia’s services through her influential Knightsbridge interior design company, cool10, will offer a personalised service for customers in the UK, Channel Islands and Spain as an additional option to that of the factory near Lucerne.
“PC-12s are always built to order and can be personalised with special liveries and a range of pre-selected luxury materials for the interior.” he said. “We believe that Celia’s experience and eye for detail will be appreciated by potential buyers and even existing owners who may wish to refresh their aircraft.”
Celia said that there is no reason why, with the very basic but clever use of specially created fabrics for headrests and seat cushions, the interior could be transformed fast by the crew for either corporate travel or family flights.
“Some people may like just a plain plane but I believe that we can create a very personalised and stylish designs to take the wow factor even higher!”
