Project Mayfair: Bespoke Private Jet a “Penthouse in the Sky”

By Paul Joseph

British style is being taken to the sky with Project Mayfair, a bespoke private jet by world renowned London design studio Andrew Winch Designs.

Inspired by the new breed of hotels in London’s well-heeled Mayfair district, the jet is billed as merging classic British elegance with an international business-club sophistication.

But more than just a functional fashion accessory, Project Mayfair offers certain utilitarian benefits that, its creators claim, sets it apart from other market leaders in the field of private aviation.

While bespoke aircrafts usually require new and unique layout configurations for engineering and out-fitting, Andrew Winch and his team have designed a flexible but repeatable platform that means a shorter turn-around time to operational delivery.

Bespoke materials and tailored detailing mean that an owner's individual tastes and personal expression can still be met, but with the added value of time and cost-saving benefits that competitors cannot match.

As Mr Winch explain, “One of the key advantages of Project Mayfair is that it will offer clients their own design, but also a reduction in cost to buy, engineer and design and a short turnaround time from purchase of a green aircraft.”

Notable on-board features include a dining table that converts into a game table, an adjoining lounge area, a multi-functional office, a cinema and a fully-appointed master suite and bathroom.

Founded in 1986, Andrew Winch Designs are primarily known for their design of luxury yachts. More recently, the London studio has been selected as one of two teams for business jet interior development of the Boeing 787.
